"It can be used in any software for any industry. It is the intelligent part of the software," Tailor noted. It works by scanning a component in 3D. The acquired 3D information is provided to the algorithm to identify and quantify a suspicious region's faults, and then the depth, area and volume of the region can be relayed onto the inspectors.
In the beauty industry, an expert would be able to tell whether an anti-ageing cream had had any effect by scanning a face before and after its use. The algorithm could also be used by the car insurance industry. Tailor recently presented his research to politicians and a panel of expert judges at the House of Commons as part of SET for Britain.
