Walking into Beijing IrisKing Co., Ltd.(hereinafter referred to as Irisking) located in the north fourth ring road, my eyes were attracted by the patent certificates filled in the hall. Invention patents account for 80 percent of those patents, and the earliest ones were obtained in the 1990s. It can be said that these certificates have witnessed the history of innovation.
Since its establishment in 2006, Irisking has carried out core business focusing on biometric identification, information security and other technologies. At the same time, by drawing on the development experience of foreign large enterprises, Irisking constantly expands its patent reserve through technology transfer and other means. At present, Irisking has become a high-tech enterprise with mature iris recognition technology. Li xingguang, director of Irisking research institute, said that Irisking has been able to develop rapidly in the field of iris recognition technology, mainly because of the company's protection and application of intellectual property rights.
We will continue to innovate and promote the wide use of technology
as early as the 1990s, the institute of automation of the Chinese academy of sciences started research on iris recognition technology. At that time, iris recognition technology was only a research project in the laboratory. However, with the deepening of iris recognition technology research in China, the improvement of the accuracy of research and development, and the growing demand of society for identity authentication by using biological characteristics, Irisking was officially established in Beijing in 2006. Irisking CEO Ma li introduced.
It is understood that Irisking research and development of iris recognition technology first applied in the coal industry. "2006 was a golden year for the development of the domestic coal industry. A large number of coal enterprises were set up, but safety problems of coal miners were also exposed. In order to fully grasp the basic information of coal miners under the mine and better manage the safety production, iris recognition technology began to be applied to the coal industry, becoming a more accurate and safe identity information authentication technology after fingerprint, face recognition, RFID and other technologies, providing security for the safety production of the coal industry." With the continuous innovation and development of technology, the application field of iris recognition is also expanding. According to the different characteristics of each of the iris structure, division of rainbow bully r&d team successively from monocular to eyes, from static to dynamic, from close range to three technical areas over a long distance, bold reform of iris recognition technology, research and development of the iris recognition in the field of imaging devices, image processing, retrieval, security and other key technology, break through the iris recognition usability, security, real-time development bottleneck. In the past 10 years since its establishment, Irisking has gradually expanded to the fields of public security, justice, finance and mobile communications, and formed a large-scale application.
Now, Irisking has launched multiple products including iris recognition mobile terminal, micro-usb iris imaging module and application software, and embedded iris recognition device. These products solve the staff identity authentication of very large scale of demand, can also be used for all kinds of mobile phones, computers and other mobile devices, for mobile devices to unlock, file encryption, payment security, and other functions, but also can be used in all kinds of national examination the examinee identity authentication and identification of bank credit business, and provide clues to solve major difficult cases.
Relying on patents to promote the rapid development of enterprises
In Ma li's opinion, patents are the foundation for the development and growth of enterprises. As a research expert who has been working in the field of iris recognition technology for many years, ma li truly realized the importance of intellectual property rights. Irisking attaches great importance to the patent protection of its products. Before the establishment of the company, it has submitted several patent applications around the iris recognition technology. After the establishment of the company, Irisking has put intellectual property in the first place in the company's business development. In addition to setting up a special department of intellectual property and providing intellectual property specialists, Irisking basically follows up and submits related patent applications for each product developed by the company to form effective protection.
"So far, Irisking rainbow bully has submitted an application for a patent for more than 50 pieces, also submit the PCT patent applications in 2013, more than 30 pieces, authorized invention patent core technology are mainly concentrated in the iris recognition algorithms, iris, iris recognition hardware device live detection, iris image preprocessing, multimodal biometric recognition, etc." In addition to strengthening the patent layout by filing patent applications, Irisking also acquires a large number of foreign patents through technology transfer, which greatly enhances its own patent strength, li said.
"The patents can bring high added value to the enterprise, and Irisking has authorized the indigenously developed iris recognition algorithm technology to a British company for the identification of 2 million refugees from unhcr. The technology is also licensed to a bank in Jordan to make deposits and withdrawals at an ATM without a card or password. Li xingguang said that with excellent research and development strength, Irisking has initially been recognized by foreign enterprises. At present, Irisking has cooperated with some domestic and foreign mobile phone manufacturers, hoping to better apply iris recognition technology to mobile phone products and provide information security for the public.
As an innovative technology enterprise, Irisking has been using patents as a booster for enterprise development. In the past 10 years since its establishment, Irisking has been continuously strengthening its patent strength by submitting patent applications and acquiring patents, and has built a patent system based on the core technology of iris recognition and relying on the hardware and software of iris recognition, laying a foundation for its future business development and going to overseas markets.
