More info

Gil has broad experience as a manager and developer in army, corporate and start-up environments. In the course of his army service in the Israeli Elite Special Forces and afterwards, he experienced firsthand the implications of facial recognition and the risks it holds to people’s privacy. He and Sella decided that restoring privacy will become their mission. He studied the topic, focusing on computer vision and image processing, completing a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science at Tel Aviv University. After his graduation and upon gaining the necessary knowledge, Gil invented one of the most complicated and groundbreaking algorithms in order to protect photos from face recognition technologies. This served as the foundation for creating D-ID.
