Secure Personal Identity in Pictures

Millions of pictures are shared on- and offline in newspapers, social media, and other webpages every day. At the same time, the European Union released new laws (GDPR) to regulate the use and exchange of privacy-sensitive data. In recent years, organizations have made huge efforts to comply with these laws. However, no real effort has been made yet to secure image data.

PiktID offers an innovative and automatic tool not yet available, fostering the development of AI-based solutions to protect sensitive image data. Our tool achieves that through a seamless replacement of faces in images with new, artificially generated ones without affecting the quality of the original picture. Thus, we provide privacy for individuals who did not give consent to the usage of images including their personal data. Furthermore, we significantly reduce the overhead for companies required to comply with the GDPR.
