NGI solution(s) used by your organisation: 

Sensifai offer video/image/audio recognition on the device, e.g. mobile phone, laptops and tablets. This technology is similar to that of Amazon Alexa or Apple SIRI while requiring no cloud processing of sensitive and private data of the users because we developed a technology that processes all the data locally in the device. Then the user can store the image/video/audio data after the encryption on the cloud or use a peer2peer technology to transfer it somewhere of interest.
