AI Startup, Nodeflux, Represented Indonesia at CEBIT IT Conference in Australia
The adoption rate of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in the industrial world is increasing. In Indonesia, about 24.6 percent of business organizations have adopted the sophistication of AI. This makes Indonesia the country with the highest adoption rate compared to other countries like Thailand (17.1 percent) and Singapore (9.9 percent).
Along with the development of AI in Indonesia, the number of AI specialization companies is increasing. One of them is Nodeflux startup. The company claimed to be the largest AI vision in Indonesia. And currently, it represented Indonesia as the official speaker at the Australian CEBIT conference.
This event is one of the biggest annual trade shows in IT, digitalization, and communication. This year, the CEBIT IT conference was held in Sydney on October 29-31, 2019. Previously, Nodeflux was also the only speaker from Indonesia at the 2019 AI World Summit in the Netherlands.
The appointment of Nodeflux as a speaker at various IT conferences around the world shows the quality and professionalism of the company that has been recognized. Nodeflux, which was established in 2016, developed itself as the only vision AI company that has collaborated with the Indonesian government.
Nudeflux Offers a Variety of Advanced Technology Features
The company offers various advanced technology features that can help the government to realize the concept of the smart city effectively. It also supports digital transformation carried out in the sector through a technology platform called VisionAIre. Through VisionAIre, Nodeflux offers various capabilities based on visual scanning.
For example, there are face recognition and people counting (counting the number of masses in one particular area). Nodeflux also has license plate recognition capabilities (capturing car license plate numbers from CCTV cameras), and water level detection (detecting patterns of water movement in certain areas).
Moreover, it also provides face demography (detecting gender and age based on people’s facial characteristics). Currently, this startup encourages the wide application of Vision AI technology by working with important institutions such as Jakarta Smart City, Polri, and Jasa Marga.
This startup also participates in international events such as the 2018 Asian Games and the 2018 IMF-World Bank Group Summit. “Adoption of AI has offered various facilities and efficiencies in various sectors of life,” Richard Dharmadi, Nodeflux Group Product Manager, said.
In this case, he continued, the adoption is especially helpful for the government to overcome or monitor social problems that occur in the community such as security, the discipline of road users, and early warning of natural disasters. His company was also proud to represent Indonesia at CeBIT Australia.
Nudeflux Has Gained Some Awards as a Pioneer in Adopting Vision AI
For their performance and contribution in driving the success of the future city concept, the company, which was founded by Meidy Fitranto and Faris Rahman, was awarded the 2018 Indonesia Award from PT Astra International Tbk in the technology category.
Richard hopes that Nodeflux can share its expertise to expand the adoption of Vision AI. Thus, it can have positive impacts on various parts of the world. Currently, One of Nodeflux’s successes is to increase the potential revenue of the Jakarta Provincial Government to IDR 144 billion.
This is through a trial project (Proof of Concept) in the quarter I of 2019. DKI Jakarta Provincial Government utilizes the Nodeflux feature, namely license plate recognition, at six CCTV points in the capital. This feature detects car license plates and adjusts the data to the taxation system.
The adoption of Vision AI itself has a very broad implementation. The five major industries that have made initial adoption include banking, telecommunications, health services, e-commerce, and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG). “We feel happy because the Indonesia government pays attention to the development and implementation of AI technology,” Richard concluded.
