Couple things of note when looking for this guy on google.
-there is another Ori Cohen, younger, CEO of a company called fotegrafik, located in Singapore.
A large part of our image acquisition process, is the approval and key-wording of each individual photo. Approval is the QA of a photo to meet our
client’s minimum standards (size, quality and creativity). Key-Wording is the process of adding keywords to describe the content of each photo, so
clients could perform a query and efficiently and accurately locate those images. Those tasks are labor and time consuming therefore costly, and it
delays the time to market of a new photo that arrives at our desk. We wish to develop, a software solution that would replace part of the human
interaction in the process. The system should pre-scan the images for technical qualifications and match keywords with existing photos in the
database. Once the solution is implemented, a photo would arrive to our employee, once it has already been QA’d and partially key-worded. That
eventually would reduce the time of the image processing and therefore cut production cost and time to market.
His company is involved in developing software that can describe content of pictures using key words...fits in pretty well with the whole internet
Here's some stuff from an interview with the other
I come from a marketing and biz-dev background but I also have a long software engineering background having worked for years as lead
software engineer and product manager in different small and large companies,and even a small exit at these happy 90′s selling one of my first
startups at the age of 22.
During my MBA studies at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, I spent time in the US and in general traveled a lot, and I have lived in
various continents since childhood.
There are many advantages to our technology, I’ll name two of the key ones:
1. It is super scalable. We are able to index and retrieve images and videos from huge databases of content – and by that I mean: billions of
images or hours of video, in a matter of milliseconds and without compromising on the accuracy of the results.
2. Our technology is one of the most versatile in the market today. It is as useful for image libraries (stock agencies, photo sharing, etc..), mobile
devices, retail applications, security agencies and the list of ideas or requests our clients and prospects bring is growing all the
Index and retrieve images from huge databases.....
Is it just me or is there some striking similarities between what the OP mystery man and what the other
Ori Cohen is doing.
-And there are a few other, other Ori Cohens. As it turns out they both live in my state, NY. One is the owner of Orics Industry, a small
pharmaceutical and food packaging machinery company. Grad of Columbia..doing pretty well. Another Ori Cohen is the director of the SUNY upstate
medical center in Syracuse...also doing pretty well.
-The co-founder of Narus (Stas Khirman) doesn't have a wikipedia page either.
-Ori Cohen of Israel is currently involved in a project involving robotics, and controlling an avatar with thought.
All of the info I just provided is probably meaningless, but it was interesting to me.
