Excerpted from the website:
- The company was formed in April 2008 to commercialise a digital marketing platform (FaceTec) that uses patented facial recognition technology which enables the large scale automated personalisation of digital advertising, communication and content for brands, marketing agencies and advertisers. FaceTec Ltd has been formed by John Bickley the CEO of Genemation Ltd, which was spun-out of The University of Manchester’s medical imaging division in 2002 which granted Genemation a commercialisation licence for facial recognition algorithms and associated software libraries. Genemation and The University funded a number of successful patent applications and more recently Genemation acquired the rights to commercialise University research funded by Toyota Europe which will be jointly patented by FaceTec and Toyota Europe. Genemation Ltd was funded mainly by Manchester Technology Fund (MTF), North West Equity Fund (NWEF), Liverpool Seed Fund (LSF) and the CEO. At the end of March 2008 FaceTec Ltd acquired all the assets and IP owned by Genemation Ltd.
