DuckDuckGoose

DuckDuckGooseDUCKDUCKGOOSE

Deepfake technology has become incredibly accessible and the number of applications is numerous. But this also makes abuse more accessible. Experts at UCL have ranked deepfakes as the most serious AI crime threat. Examples of abuse include identity fraud, false burden of proof, and fake news. With the ever increasing digitisation and the speed of internet platforms, convincing deepfakes can quickly reach millions of people or get involved in all kinds of processes and influence every facet of our lives negatively. And that’s exactly where DuckDuckGoose comes in.

DuckDuckGoose is on a mission to create a digital environment where we can still believe what we perceive. Through advances in artificial intelligence and computer vision, we make it possible to detect deepfakes in an insightful manner. Our explainable deepfake detection tool uncovers deepfake selfies presented in the digital identity verification (IDV) process, helping IDV experts in avoiding false positives when it comes to identification of people.

TECTIVE ROBOTS

Farmers are facing increasingly restrictive legislation on chemical usage, whilst having to deal with more extreme weather conditions and decreasing margins. Precision agriculture techniques hold a great promise: to reduce chemical usage by 30%, whilst increasing yields by 30%. At the core of precision agriculture lies the need for per-plant crop health monitoring. The cost of acquiring this data is a limiting factor. Tective Robotics is working with farmers to create a fully automated crop surveying service using a network of dronehubs. By automating the entire drone flight process from our hubs, we provide farmers with a care-free, low-risk and cost-effective alternative to buying and flying their own drones. Each hub can accommodate hundreds of farmers, creating a shared infrastructure in the Netherlands that will benefit both farmers and create opportunities for many other usecases.

ACOUSTIC INSIGHT BV

Acoustic Insight develops an innovative medical device based on an optical echo to identify middle-ear abnormalities for ear specialists around the world.

Acoustic Insight develops an innovative diagnostics platform offering ear surgeons around the world exceptional insight in the well-being of the middle ear. Our technology accurately identifies morphological and conductive abnormalities allowing ear specialists to enhance treatment plans for their patients.

LANEFYLD

The Lanefyld rollator prevents rollator related accidents. With our product we enable nursing homes to provide better quality of care for their residents and reduce healthcare costs. 

Lanefyld wants to become the “Tesla” of the rollator market. 50% of all people using a rollator are doing so incorrectly which causes lots of accidents.These accidents can have a significant impact on a person’s life as they can become isolated, are unable to live at home or sometimes even pass away. In order to solve this problem, we utilize smart technology to assess if an accident is about to happen, just like Tesla. In case of a dangerous situation, the system automatically activates the electric brakes in order to stop the accident from happening. We combine our technology with a beautiful design because we believe that functionality and aesthetics should always go hand in hand.

NATURE’S PRINCIPLES

Nature’s Principles B.V. is a Dutch biochemical startup developing a patented fermentation technology to produce L-lactic acid directly from sugar beet, in a up to 30% more cost-efficient process. Our lactic acid will be provided to PLA (bioplastics) producers with an LCA calculation that includes up to 500x less water usage than traditional water depleting production processes.

VERTIGO TECHNOLOGIES B.V.

Vertigo Technologies is a Dutch startup expert in the development of microwave and millimeter wave equipment. With “Fresco Microwave Sensing”  , Vertigo is introducing a new series of sensors for the inspection of internal properties of fresh fruit, like ripening stage, freshness or shelf-life, without affecting the fruit. Fresco sensors can be used in the entire fresh fruit value chain, from farm to import/export and retail, in the form of both handheld and sorting line devices, to optimize logistics and reduce waste.

 

MAGNETO B.V.

In Magneto, we believe that people don’t have to sacrifice our planet for their comfort or vice versa. Current heating and cooling are some of the biggest producers of greenhouse gas emissions. Our technology offers an alternative to producers of systems for cooling and heating. An alternative that has zero greenhouse gas emissions, saves up to 30% of power consumption to their clients, and has a lower cost of ownership.
