FeaturePrint app claims it can identify fake products using a smartphone

One major nuisance that frustrates buyers is finding out that the product they received is a counterfeit, a far cry from the original.

Fortunately, an application claims it can identify these fake items compared to the original with a smartphone snapshot. This software is called FeaturePrint, developed by Alitheon, a Washington-based company.

The app runs on artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically tell whether an item is counterfeit or authentic. The drawback, however, is that the product must be registered with the service.

It can be installed on smartphones and used to identify, authenticate, and trace the authenticity of an item one takes a photo of. Users can simply snap a picture of a luxury item, for example, and FeaturePrint should be able to trace supply chains that could verify the item’s authenticity.

Alitheon also explained that their AI system recognizes small details on the surface of the items and then converts them into mathematical sets of numbers. Further, the company ensures the app still functions well with damaged or broken products.

FeaturePrint is still not available to the public (Google Play Store and Apple App Store), but corporate clients can gain access to the software already.

Would you be willing to install this app when it does become available? Let us know in the comment section below.
