Vancouver, BC and Atlanta, GA – May 13, 2019 – Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (“Liberty”) (TSXV: SCAN; FRANKFURT: LD2), a leader in security and weapons detection solutions, is announcing acceptance into the NVIDIA Artificial Intelligence (AI) inception program, designed to accelerate the growth of select startups that are advancing their industries using AI and Deep Learning (DL).
The AI team is utilizing the program’s resources and expertise to advance the automatic detection technology in Liberty’s signature HEXWAVE product. HEXWAVE utilizes graphics processing units (GPUs) for its active 3D imaging technology, and uses AI and DL methods for the automatic detection of threats, such as weapons.
The virtual accelerator program provides tools, technology, and expertise to help startups during the stages of product development, prototyping, and deployment. It also offers training from the NVIDIA DL institute, hardware discounts, and grants.
Recently, Liberty’s AI team attended NVIDIA’s 2019 GPU Technology Conference (GTC), a global conference series providing training, insights, and direct access to experts on the major topics in computing.
“At the conference, our team gathered information on the available tools to accelerate computing, optimizing and deploying models efficiently, data pre-processing and labeling, and object and anomaly detection, among other information and activities,” said Aman Bhardwaj, Liberty’s COO and President of US Operations. “We were also able to interact with some of the best minds in AI and learn about real world problems, research, and advancements in the technology. We anticipate presenting the HEXWAVE product at next year’s GTC.”
Liberty also wishes to announce that it has engaged Clarkham Capital Ltd. (“Clarkham”) to provide investor relations services to the company in the European market.
Clarkham, based in London, UK, is a consulting company that provides investor relations and marketing services with a focus on the German stock market and the German-speaking investor community. Pursuant to the agreement with Clarkham, Clarkham has agreed to create and publish content regarding Liberty´s business for a three-month period in exchange for an all-inclusive fee of €200,000.
