PhotoAid is an online service that transforms home photographs into a format required in official documents.
By using the service, users can take selfies with a mobile phone and use them in an ID, a driver’s license or a passport. The core of the operations is founded on using AI-based image processing solutions.
As the main challenge was to build the dataset to train the algorithm on from scratch, Tooploox together with PhotoAid ended up building two solutions: IoT- and AI-based. We also used Artificial Data Generation, which enabled us to produce thousands of images of different people with a variety of lighting conditions for an extremely low cost.
When combined with the Arduino-controlled photobooth to gather real-life data, PhotoAid obtained a comprehensive pipeline of training and validation data so that it can build and implement algorithms that transform images with various lighting conditions into document-ready photos, securing its position as a leader on the market.
