The World Economic Forum Has Announced Its Selection of the Most Promising Technology Pioneers of 2019. Companies Were Selected for Their Potential to “Transform Their Industries” and “Improve Society for Years to Come.”
Truepic, the leading photo and video verification platform, was selected among hundreds of candidates as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers.” Truepic’s patented “Controlled Capture” camera technology, which captures photos and videos whose provenance and contents are verified at the source, has been used in over 100 countries around the world, by top businesses, organizations, and everyday people looking to establish trust through photos and videos. Its remote inspections platform, Truepic Vision, has transformed the inspections process for the insurance, lending, and warranty industries. Truepic Vision also allows governments, international organizations, and donors to reduce cost, risk, and increase oversight of social impact programming.
