The first of many applications under development is a powerful extension to Ebbon Group’s moDel solution. Capabilities being worked on include:
- Accurate auto damage detection for pre-assessment and pick up/collection
- Damage delta detection – for instance quickly identifying changes in condition between vehicle rentals or movements
- Efficient back office damage evaluation with mass image handling – for instance for vehicle returns departments
Zegami was born out of a collaboration led by Oxford University scientists to analyse and understand large datasets from experiments generating thousands of images of cancer cells and data from the human genome. The company was spun out as an image-based data visualisation platform and grew with backing from Oxford Sciences Innovation (amongst others). The new venture with Ebbon Intelligence perfectly builds on the scientific and medical imaging applications and expertise that has been built up over the last five years.
