Overview


Revolutionizing the way machines see the world

Video streams for drones or dash cams and camera-based AI applications, such as “auto-pilots” or assisted driving devices often lose visual clarity due to visibility problems caused by fog, rain, snow, or by lack of light as in nighttime. 


Lolaark Vision Inc. is a software technology company that is inventing and developing software for live video stream visibility restoration that helps the operator or an automated system of a vehicle to view and recognize potential risks. This groundbreaking technology has the potential not only to revolutionize industries, but also save lives from potential accidents by minimizing human operating error. Our software isn’t a luxury; it’s the next step in the evolution of live video stream restoration. Lolaark Vision’s technology will provide visual clarity for AI based camera operating systems as they become more ubiquitous in everyday life.


Co-founders Dr. Sanat Kumar Upadhyay and Prof. Emanuel I. Papadakis invented several sophisticated mathematical models and algorithms that enabled visibility restoration and enhancement in a broad number of adverse conditions for all types of digital cameras. Our technology improves the visibility of scene structures in live video feed, still photography and in recorded videos, in a way that makes shapes easily recognizable even when they are not even visible in the original input.

THE PROBLEM


Most imaging operations can’t handle poor conditions


Real-time operations such as self-driving cars, security and surveillance, underwater inspections, and medical imaging. require clear visibility for optimal performance. Shade, low light, glare, strong headlights, fog, heavy rain and murky water often reduces camera visibility, thus performance quality. As our lives are becoming increasingly machine dependent, human vision is gradually being replaced or complemented by camera vision. The synergy of other sensor error probabilities must be practically zero. 



For instance, an autopilot for self-driving cars must detect objects ahead even under poor lighting conditions in order to avoid potentially dangerous obstacles. Marine safety inspections that are carried out by Remotely Operated Vehicles usually occur in inland water bodies or in river ports where visibility is always a difficult obstacle to overcome.


 

Security and Surveillance systems (such as face and object recognition systems) and drones can suffer poor visibility due to low illumination, haze, fog, precipitation, or or smoke. Camera sensors are unable to capture images with sufficient  clarity in such conditions, which makes object recognition and scene perception very difficult and often inaccurate for both humans and machines. Biomedical images can also suffer different forms of illumination challenges. Also, microscopic images of live specimens may suffer poor visibility due to weakening of laser light intensity. Often we cannot use strong lasers as it may damage the specimens.

 


All of these industries rely on accurate and clear camera views to provide the necessary visibility for their respective users. The common problem in all of these cases is to find fast and efficient algorithms that improve visibility in real-time for videos and images.

THE SOLUTION


Our algorithms will make your cameras see clearly in real time


The technology we developed has unique advantages. It is highly parallelizable, hence we can implement it in real time by taking advantage of programmable Graphics processing units, such as NVIDIA graphics cards, fitted even in laptops. It also achieves high restoration clarity for a great variety of visibility conditions, even for bad ones, such as the murky waters of coastal ports. This unique level of performance provides us with a strong foothold in multiple markets.



For self-driving cars, Lolaark Vision has the technology to assist those AI-based autopilot systems by improving the visual quality of the camera inputs. Our technology can help an autopilot or human detect objects ahead even under poor lighting conditions to avoid dangerous obstacles in a timely manner. For security and surveillance usage, Lolaark Vision can greatly enhance their capabilities under poor visibility conditions, both in real-time applications and in post-processing applications.

In the biomedical imaging industry, our technology can greatly enhance visibility for both scans and medical cameras used for exploratory purposes by restoring the image quality during and after the scan. For marine operations, our prototype is currently configured for underwater cameras and can clean up a live video stream. Commercial divers and underwater drone operators can also use our technology with more confidence about what they see and in a fraction of time. Our technology allows them to inspect submerged structures such as ship hulls, dams, bridges in their operations when water turbidity poses big visibility problems. By harnessing the power of sophisticated mathematical algorithms and graphics card units, we tripled and quadrupled the visibility radius of underwater cameras in highly murky waters.



Our target market is other businesses who manufacture large systems used for operations such as security, surveillance, navigation, incorporating object detection and recognition. They integrate our technology as a preprocessing plugin to increase the accuracy of their systems when visibility conditions are poor. Within this framework, our main revenue stream will come from royalties collected from these other companies operating in the aforementioned markets.

OUR TRACTION


Early results yield immediate success 


We have developed both mathematical models and computational algorithms for our technology as well as working prototypes for both real time and offline visibility enhancement. So far, we have developed two prototypes, one for live video and another that works on saved video and photos. Both prototypes run on any gaming Windows PC with intel i7 processors and NVIDIA GTX 1060 card (or equivalent.) 


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development


The live video prototype works in a real-time and can process 720p video at 25 frames per second in real-time. 


*Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development


The “Offline prototype” can process videos up to 4k resolution and 60 frames per second. It is designed to quickly evolve as a very useful companion for underwater surveyors, marine archaeologists and biologists, oceanographers, forensic investigators, search and recovery teams, pipeline inspectors, and civil engineers for bridge and dam inspections. This utility works on video footage, single or multiple photos with only a few clicks to select the best fitting settings with the help of a preview window.


Lolaark Vision Inc. prototype software increases the visibility of a scene captured in live video mode, thus increasing navigational and operational safety, as well as overall performance efficiency. Integrating our technology as a real-time preprocessing step in a camera operating system will significantly improve the accuracy of your system.


Our goal is to advance these prototypes into software components suitable for implementing our algorithmic designs for higher resolutions up to 8K and high frame rates. Doing so, our aim is to make the technology flexible enough to function as a pre-processing software component for HD-camera clarity restoration for a number of dynamically growing industrial applications.

Lolaark Vision in the Offshore Technology Conference 2022, Houston Texas

9 days ago

Our main goal for OTC 2022 was brand awareness. This conference is primarily designed for technologies used in oil and gas exploration and extraction offshore. We had a presence in the exhibition jointly with Poseidon Robotics and Mission Robotics. Both companies specialize in tethered underwater drones. During the four days of the conference, we spoke to about 50 different companies which is a good number given the fact that most of the exhibitors are interested in the O&G extraction technology and not in cameras and video technology. We met and exchanged contact information with approximately 70 different people, from Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, and Brasil. We need to remark that the number of exhibitors showing underwater drones and some autonomous underwater vehicles and cameras is a relatively small, yet growing, fraction of the total number of exhibitors. Many of them showed great interest in our technology and the cameras we will be using. Our attention was directed to underwater drone and camera manufacturers as those can be our first clients who can actually market our technology.  A lot more people were at the conference this year with a lot more optimism and big plans. We are planning our next exhibit presence. For sure OTC 2023 and a bigger booth again with the same booth partners, quite likely SNAME (Society for nautical and Marine Engineers Conference) 2022 or Underwater Intervention 2023 with plans to promote sales and secure industrial collaborations.

Since you love the visual material we show you here we have one more night photo from Limeni in Peloponesse, Greece. As usual, the photo on the left is the original. We used the LV technology to enhance it. You can even see some details of the marine environment in the enhanced image. Unlike the Prot of Galveston, the sea in the LImeni Bay is pristinely clean and blue in day time. BTW Limeni means port in Greek. We wish you all a nice weekend. We are looking forward to meeting you next Sunday.

4K resolution underwater video from the last Galveston trial. Water turbidity 17.5 NTU

about 2 months ago

On March 17th, 2022 we ventured to Galveston at the same location where we contacted our first trial.  You can see the location on the pictures published on the 3/18 update. We used a drone to carry our Olympus TG6 camera. The underwater drone traveled from the dry dock we were situated on to the vessel across. Between seconds 30 and 35, you can see only on the right panel the hull of the vessel berthed across from us. At the beginning and end of the video, you can see the rich marine growth on the drydock's hull. TO APPRECIATE THE VIDEO WATCH IT IN 4K RESOLUTION. To select this resolution go to the video settings BY CLICKING ON THE WHEEL ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE YOUTUBE VIEWER. You may use 1080p but even in that resolution, YouTube compression will give you some artifacts. 4K view IS FREE OF ARTIFACTS AND SHOWS WHAT WE RECORDED AND VIEWED AFTER PROCESSING THE VIDEO with our tech. We want to clarify that at this time we process 1080p video in real-time. We do not yet process 4K video in real-time. We will include that resolution level in our real-time processing capabilities sometime in 2023. For those who are very technical the water turbidity was 17.5 NTU. Drinking water has turbidity measuring from 0-0.5 NTU. 


Visibility enhancement in a misty day at the Galveston ship channel (PLEASE WATCH IN FULL SCREEN MODE)

about 2 months ago

The video we show is 4Kwith 25 frames per second. We shot it with an Olympus camera. We wanted to test the enhancement with our technology. I was hoping to have worse visibility conditions, but still, visibility was on the lower side yet not good.  This is part of our testing. I wanted, in particular, to see how much the camera video compression set at superfine affects the quality of the enhancement. This is a preparation for our upcoming data collection for a second study we will conduct with the University of Houston on how LV-technology improves AI-powered object detection. If you take a look at a previous update (entitled the Black Sheep) we report on one of our earlier experiments when our technology was still an academic project.


 



IMPORTANT UPDATE - Investment Reconfirmations(If you have already reconfirmed please disregard)

about 2 months ago

Dear investors, very recently our campaign was extended until April 30th. Many companies raising funds on crowdfunding platforms follow this practice. Our goal is to broaden our investor base at a period of time extending through the release of our first main product. We foresee that this suite of products, each one of them is a stand-alone software, will become betas sometime in May 2022. At this time several of the videos we show in our updates are processed in live mode with the "alpha" version of our main suite. We can talk more about these developments in our future open houses. 

When a company on this platform extends its campaign investments posted during the last few days of the campaign that is going to be extended are automatically canceled by StartEngine unless they are reconfirmed within 7 days from the first day of the campaign extension. Our followers and our investors receive many emails every day and as many of us do, we turn on the deal-with-it later filter to those emails, especially when one has invested and the investment is confirmed. Unfortunately during a very short period before the end of the original campaign even a confirmed investment (funds cleared) needs reconfirmation. We want to invite the very few of our investors who missed the 7-day reconfirmation window to go through the process of buying shares again as their original purchase is fully canceled.  We feel honored that you trust our technology and share our vision.  

A non-business related, positive message from India (Please don't skip)

2 months ago

Business talk is fine but there are some aspects of life that all of us need to be concerned about. Today's post is not about AI but it concerns the land that supports us, the farmland that nourishes all of us. 

This week on March 21, 2022, 65 years old Sadhguru embarked on a 30,000 Km long motorcycle rally passing through 26 nations in Europe and Asia. This journey's goal is to raise public awareness about the need to prevent farmland desertification. You may have not heard anything about Sadhguru before but, he is one of the most influential persons in India and in the world today, who tirelessly  works on several key social and ecological projects.

Soil nutrients are being rapidly depleted. Can synthetic fertilizers reverse this trend?" The problem is not that simple. Soil cannot become rich only by adding chemical compounds and minerals into it. It needs a rich biodiverse system consisting of microorganisms, earthworms, and other biomasses. A handful of rich fertile soil contains more microbes than people on this planet. These microbes help the exchange of minerals between the soil and the roots of plants and trees, and plants reward those organisms with plant-synthesized glucose. The poorer the soil microorganism density is the lesser the nutritional value of the crops and fruits becomes.  Soil becomes infertile when soil biodiversity and organic content fall below a certain minimum threshold.

You may wonder why should we be concerned?" The answer is  this is the story of over 65% of agricultural land on this planet. Most of the farmlands are about to lose their fertility in the next 25-40 years. This will cause large-scale global famines. If we act today, we can turn this around in the next two decades, otherwise, it may take over 200 years to reverse the damage.

The next obvious question is, "So what can I do? I am not a farmer". All we have to do is be aware of this growing problem and share our concerns with other and make this a topic for public debate. As with climate change, this issue will find its way into the public debate and eventually lead to the new  more soil friendly agricultural policies  that will rejuvenate farmlands. The journey of Sadhguru is an attempt to raise awareness among people across different parts of the world. We in Lolaark Vision support this noble cause wholeheartedly. 

"This is about turning a whole generation back from the brink. Let's make this happen." - Sadhguru

Another sea trial in Galveston

2 months ago

March 17th, 2022 we ventured to Galveston at the same location where we contacted our first trial. This time we wanted to check some equipment. Specifically, we tested whether a small underwater drone could carry a relatively light subsea camera housing we modified in Lolaark Vision for acquiring HD-SDI uncompressed video. In the pictures below, you can see the precise location, a dry dock carrying a vessel, from where we launched the drone. One of our founders. Wesley Guntharp piloted the drone. You can see him holding it. Behind the propeller seen on the top, left picture is the location where we set up our equipment. The small drone could not carry our HD-SDI camera, but it successfully carried our Olympus TG6 camera we use to experiment with 4K underwater video. We will show you the 4K video taken with the Olympus camera next week.  


 


The black sheep. An object detection challenge

2 months ago

The key challenge for AI object detectors is to handle the unpredictable content of images. In our previous updates, we promised to discuss object detection and classification in connection to the Lolaark Vision technology. In this example, we use an early version of our technology when it was still an academic project. Right, is the original image. The processed with the academic version of the LV-tech is on the left image. Below you see what a high-performance classifier can do when it is presented with a relatively challenging image. The red boxes are what we call ground truth and help to automatically evaluate the object detector’s (OB) performance. All other differently colored boxes indicate that OB found an object. The label on each such box shows what kind of object the OB found in the box. The difficulty in this image is that some of the sheep hide behind the two front big fluffy sheep. The second trouble for the OB is that it has never seen a black sheep. So the OB knows that black cannot be the color of a sheep. As you see LV tech helps the OB to find more objects than in the original image. However, in both cases, OB fails to identify the black object as a black sheep. But at least, it tells us that there is an object there. For self-driving cars, it is important to identify the presence of an object in your car’s path. Classification (what kind of object we have) is important too, but if detection fails, classification will never follow. By means of the early version of the LV tech, we see that all objects are detected but one sheep (behind the white sheep standing) is detected twice. The funny result in this example is how OB classifies the black sheep: As cow (original) and dog (processed)! We wish you all a nice weekend.

Driving in light fog

3 months ago

We started data collection (videos and still photos) for a pilot study we will jointly carry out with the University of Houston starting May 15th. We will use cameras with a variety of resolutions to see what works best. This experimental research study is fully funded by Lolaark Vision. The goal is to examine the performance of AI object detectors that feed with data an automated piloting system.  Cameras are not the only sensors for some of these systems. For instance, laser distance detectors, aka LIDAR are also being used. However, in wet conditions, e.g. fog, LIDAR can be less reliable. In the video, we show the LEFT panel is processed in real-time with the LV technology. The  RIGTH panel is the original camera view. We used a wide visual field 1080p camera with 2.1M pixels. The view on the LEFT panel (processed) is intentionally made to not be appealing to the eye of the human beholder.  Machine view is not the same as human view. Easy recognition of shapes marking various objects is what helps AI-object detectors. We are used to seeing smooth images but object detectors want to see lines making up shapes familiar to them. This update looks more like a blog and will be continued next week with the lessons we learned. Try to see in the video below how distant shapes are enhanced. 


Galveston trial

3 months ago

This is a 1080p video clip. We processed raw video digital stream with the Lolaark Vision technology. The diver/camera man was standing on the seafloor thus stirring up mud which is somewhat visible. The actual horizontal visibility without lights is 6 inches, with two strong lights the diver could see a bit less than a foot away. We placed a magnet on a pier support pole. This is the object we track in the video. Overall, we saw that the video clarification effect equalizes the 6 in. visibility with a 3 ft horizontal visibility.

Reading inscriptions in old photos

3 months ago

We reached 300 investors. Thank you all for your faith in our technology and in our vision for Lolaark Vision Inc.

My late mother was a poet, a strong personality, and an admirer of female artists, poets, and authors. Eva (Evelina) Palmer Sikelianos was a NY ballet dancer and choreographer stage director and a lover of Greek letters. She met the renowned Greek Poet Aggelos Sikelianos whom she loved with passion. She spent all of her money in joint efforts to revive the ancient Hellenic Drama competition in the Delhi Oracle Temple site. Together and with the National Greek Drama Organization, they revived the ancient drama festivities for a number of years before 1938. Eva's fund runs dry by that year. She returns to NY to secure funds and work to resume the Delphic Festivals. She returned to Greece in 1951 after the passing of her great love, the muse of her life  Sikelianos. She organized one more theater production in Delphi to honor Sikelianos, in 1952. While she was cheered by the crowd in attendance she suffered a fatal stroke. She passed on June 7th, 1952, and the photo below was taken with the first-ever pocket camera Kodac manufactured in the '60s. My mother photographed her gravesite in Delphi, most likely feeling the spiritual energy of this great couple. Those photos were small in size low resolution and the scanner she used much later to digitally immortalize the picture only afforded 76ppi resolution, too low. I decided to process the photo with our technology. Subsequently, I made some contrast adjustments with photoshop. The original has a lot less contrast so I could not read the engraving on the tombstone. The photo print my mother scanned was printed in 1968 and colors and contrast faded as the picture was exposed to humid conditions. LV-tech selectively restores lines and details, so it seems that it did a good job helping me to read the tombstone inscription: 

"Immortal Deity you pulled the veil (of life? my edit) with your sacred hands"  

The verse is taken from one of Sikelianos' poems. Below, is the original photo and the LV-processed is the on the right.

Underwater in the murky port of Galveston, Texas

3 months ago

Imagine how you feel if you dive in a place where visibility is just 6 inches, that is, close to 10cm. Last week we shared a photo from this location. In the picture below which is a snapshot from the video we will post early next week, you see the LV tech in action. A circular magnet is attached to a pole that supports a pier. The surface is rough but the circular magnet is very visible.   

Underwater trials under way

3 months ago

A critical part of product development is field trials. The first product we will begin marketing in May 2022 is an underwater LIVE video clarifier for commercial divers, followed by its counterpart for remotely operated submersibles. We carry out field trials and wet lab trials in a variety of conditions. In the ports of Houston and Galveston, all waters are murky to very murky. A diver can only see objects 6 inches away.  In the photo below we are in the Port of Galveston.

Studying astrocyte cells association with neurological conditions of the brain

4 months ago

We, in Lolaark Vision, believe that research is an indispensable component of product development success and vertical markets expansion. Our CEO is an academic with numerous research publications. Lolaark Vision is also committed to helping researchers with in-kind preprocessing of data sets. Within this framework, we used our prototype to enhance cell images of a rat brain in order to detect astrocytes. Those images are taken with laser microscopes utilizing the fluorescence capabilities of certain proteins infused in the brain tissue specimen. Quite often cells lying deeper in the imaged tissue appear weakly and cell detection software misses them. Obtaining accurate cell counts can unlock valuable information on the role of astrocytes in neurological conditions such as addictions, depression, autism. Below you see two images. The left is the original image of one brain tissue specimen. The right panel is enhanced with the Lolaark Vision prototype. The bright, elongated structures that have several processes seen in the right panel are astrocyte cells. This is one of the input images we use for AI-based cell detection and count study jointly conducted by Professors D. Labate of the University of Houston, Anna Kruyer of the Medical University of South Carolina, our CEO E. Papadakis, and our PhD. students. We see the enhancement of the Lolaark Vision prototype makes cell shapes stand out from the textured background with consistent contrast, brightness, and detail, something that you don't see on the left panel (courtesy of Dr. A. Kruyer).

Happy New Year

4 months ago

Lolaark Vision's board wishes all of the investors and followers of the Company a Happy New Year. Needless to add that we extend those wishes to your families and loved ones. We believe that 2022 will be a great year for business as the world is gradually leaving behind the Novell coronavirus Era. Lolaark Vision will maintain a low-cost operation where 92% of our total expenses support the development of our first two products, one for remotely operated underwater vehicles and the other for commercial divers. Both will clarify in live mode 1080p video stream and will be the only tools in the market for subaquatic video tested in coastal and river waters in the South USA. The latter of the two products will be released approximately around the end of April 2022.

We currently work to join a major Angels investor network in order to augment our campaign with Angel investment that would help us reach closer to our target for this capital raise. 

If you would like to make an additional investment, or if you are a follower now is the time to become an investor and share your and our vision for Lolaark Vision with your personal contacts.

Expansion of the development team

5 months ago

As we approach 2022, the year when we expect to launch two products we started the expansion of our development team in November. We had the opportunity to announce this expansion to the subscribers and followers who attended our open houses in October and November. We added two new members to our team, both experts with more than 15 years of experience in the software industry. They work on the development of the Lolaark Vision Live video clarifier resource efficiency and user-friendliness. This enables the clarifier to run with no visible lag on computers that are very affordable, that most high-schooler buys these days, and become a highly sought commercial product. With these additions, our development team has four developers and one scientific advisor.

Thank you for exceeding 200K. A short news bulletin from Lolaark Vision Inc.

6 months ago

Just before Thanksgiving, we crossed the 200k mark in our campaign. This is a very significant milestone for every crowdfunding company. For Lolaark Vision this puts us solidly on the track for releasing our first product around April of 2022 and for our second product before the end of 2022. The first product targets the commercial diving market and underwater inspections as this is an area where we have gained significant know-how. In just two months in our campaign, we started working on the design of this product, a live-video clarifier that will make inspections in murky coastal waters more specific, safer, and less costly. If you look at our campaign page you will see some sample videos of how videos will look like. Using our campaign-raised capital we hired one more person, and we will soon engage one more consultant and a fifth GUI designer in order to give a fresh, functional, and easy to use and view look in the GUI of our new product. In October we had the opportunity to discuss all of these details in two virtual open houses. We do not record those because we want to protect the privacy our the participants who are not board members. We will release more details on our hirings next week. In short, we now have tripled the size of the development team since the start of our CF-campaign.

In the meantime, we have seen the number of followers in StartEngine grow significantly and the number of investors reaches 241. We want to thank all of you investors and followers for your trust.  We also continue to promote our campaign with community engagement events. On October 28th our CEO, Dr. Emanuel Papadakis spoke about the Battle of Crete, and how it impacted the German campaign against Russia in the winter of 1941, as it delayed the start of this campaign by three valuable weeks. This battle was quite uneven as the Greek, Australian, New Zealand and British forces fought an enemy that had full air superiority. The event was well-attended despite the stormy weather in Houston that day. October 28th is a national Greek holiday. The event was organized by the Hellenic Cultural Center of the SW-US under the auspices of the General Consulate of Greece in Houston. Lolaark Vision Inc. was the sponsor of the event.  In the photo below, the Consul General of Greece Mr. Kakisis is on the left, Dr. George Blytas, a chemist with 97 patents in his record and author of the history book "The First Victory: Greece's contributions to WWII" Papadakis showcased this year; our CEO is on the right.

Flying through clouds in a ravine is challenging, especially when visibility is low. Lolaark Vision's technology can make this task easier, especially if it is augmented with a 3D digital terrain view. Notice that navigational landmarks, such as the road on the hill slope on the left is always visible on the right panel. Enjoy the clip.

Lolaark Vision CEO speaker in Greek National Holiday Celebration in Houston, TX

7 months ago

October 28th marks every year the entrance of Greece in WWII. On that day in 1940, Greece was attacked by Italy and within a few days, Greece was able to push back Italians into Albania. In light of the unlucky outcome for the Italians due to the effective resistance of the Greek troops, Hitler decides prior to the Russian campaign to clean out the Balkans from British troops. With overwhelming firepower, Germany wipes out the Yugoslavian resistance and in less than a week the Germans attack Greece at its weakest spot. It takes the Germans three weeks to capture mainland Greece and curb the resistance of the joint force of Greek, Australian, New Zealand, and Cypriot troops. Then Crete remains under Greek control. The Germans need to not let Crete become the second Malta from where the British can launch air raids targeting the only oil fields available to the Axis forces. 

The Battle of Crete is a major incident of WWII in the Mediterranean theater. Australian, New Zealand, and with few remnants of Greek troops, along with a good number of civilians defend the island. However, their major problem is munitions and the entire lack of air support. The battle of Crete is the last time German paratroopers will be used in WWII. However, the battle of Crete ends on May 31st, still, numerous German aircraft are in the Balkans to serve this theater of war. This slows down the Russian campaign by at least three crucial weeks that deprive Hitler of capturing Moscow, where his troops fight amidst the worst winter of the 20th century, the 1941-1942 winter, and a counteroffensive from Soviet troops pushes them back. 

Jointly with the Greek Consulate General in Houston, the Hellenic Cultural Center of the SW USA commemorates this important day on October 28th at 730pm CT at St. Basil's church community center. The speaker is our CEO and he will talk about the Battle of Crete. 

The picture below was taken before the start of hostilities in Crete and shows three Maori, yes those fought gallantly in Crete and one Greek. You can tell who is who by looking at their uniforms and ..footwear. The Greeks were not wearing boots back then. We suppose that by reading all this you might have guessed correctly that our CEO apart from being a math professor is also an amateur historian. The photo is from Milan Ruka's collection.

Change in the Open house meeting schedule to accomodate the west coast.

Dear Investors and Followers,

We have received feedback from some investors that the time of Open house, as announced before, is too early in the morning for states following Pacific time. Many people prefer to start their day a bit late on Saturdays and therefore having to attend the open house at 7:30 AM (PT) is inconvenient. 

In order to make our schedule more comfortable for maximum number of people across United States and Europe, we have decided to push our timing forward by one and half hours. The updated Open house schedule is

Time: Saturday Oct 16, 2021 11:00 AM Central Time (US and Canada), 09:00 AM Pacific Time,  16:00 GMT 

We look forward to having you all in our session.

Lolaark Vision makes driving at night much safer for autonomous vehicles

8 months ago

Driving at night with poor visibility could be difficult and risky for self driving cars. The AI may not be able to detect objects in front until it is too late react, which may cause fatal accidents. Lolaark Vision is revolutionizing the way machines see the world in low light. Our research team is developing technologies to enhance scene perception and object detection, even in very adverse visibility conditions. Following example demonstrates how future cars could view their surroundings at night.



Some more examples of our enhancements.

8 months ago


We could not showcase many good examples that we have of our enhancements. We will use updates section to share some more examples that we could not in our main campaign.

Being able to read inscriptions in very turbid (murky) water is an excellent test for visual clarity. The example below shows a metal plate immersed in water taken from the bayou in Houston. The water is filled with a lot of suspended soil particles. 
Nevertheless, one can see the inscription "Master Mark" becoming much clearer when we use Lolaark Vision to enhance the raw footage.
