New York, NY, September 13th, 2018 – Today at Lenovo’s Transform 2.0 conference, Mirametrix announced the launch of a new data privacy feature, called Shoulder Surfing, as part of its flagship Glance by Mirametrix® AI software.
In a world of increased mobility and connectivity, data privacy is a major concern for road warriors working in airport lounges or telecommuting workers in coffee shops. Visual hacking, also called shoulder surfing, is one of the oldest but still very much effective form of personal system hacking. Lenovo, the largest PC maker in the world, is leveraging Mirametrix’s AI-enabled Attention Sensing technology as part of its comprehensive ThinkShield end-to-end digital security offerings to address this risk.
“Data privacy and security issues are a growing concern in personal computing” said Denis Lavallee, CEO of Mirametrix. “Lenovo’s innovative implementation of Glance and its Shoulder Surfing feature within its ThinkPad Privacy Guard is another great example of the concept of “smart” device design.”
When working in an open/public space, Glance by Mirametrix® detects prying eyes behind a PC user and prevents “shoulder surfing” by alerting the user. With Lenovo’s ThinkPad implementation, Glance by Mirametrix® automatically turns on an active screen privacy feature called Privacy Guard and makes the content on the display visible only to the user.
Mirametrix enables natural human-computer interaction in automotive and consumer electronics powered by its breakthrough AI-powered Attention Sensing technology – face, eye & gaze sensing. The company’s flagship software platform, Glance by Mirametrix®, provides novel and richer user experiences across all digital devices. Mirametrix consists of a tribe of technologists and trailblazers in AI who excel in computer vision, image processing and machine learning. For more information, visit www.mirametrix.com.
