From inventing the steam engine to sending people out to space, we humans have taken huge leaps in a rather short amount of time. While some of the most marvellous innovations were realised gradually, today’s technological innovations are going forward at breakneck speeds. AI is one such tech sub-segment, which is progressing rapidly and now, the Spanish AI startup Irisbond has applied it to develop the first hands-free OS independent eye-tracking tech called Hiru.
Eye-tracking tech gets an upgrade
Irisbond is a technological company of Basque origin, founded by engineer Eduardo Jáuregui in 2013. The company’s solutions are based on advanced software algorithms, which use artificial intelligence to capture eye movements and translate them into precise actions on a screen. Eye-tracking is in no way a new technology, but via the startup’s’ offering Hiru, its availability across different platforms is a first.
