NEC Named a Major Player in IDC MarketScape

12/27/2021 | 04:08am EDT

Tokyo, New Delhi & Singapore, Dec 27, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) today announced it has been named a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Vision Artificial Intelligence Software Platform 2021 Vendor Assessment (link to exclusive site: bit.ly/3sAaeMs).

NEC believes this placement is based on the strength of its AI/Biometrics technologies in multiple areas. NEC's AI technologies, including voice recognition, image and video recognition, machine learning, prediction and detection, and research in life sciences and healthcare, are either unprecedented or ranked No. 1(*) in the world.

Also mentioned in the report are NEC's use cases that included multimodal biometrics for a wide range of public and private services, including citizen services, payments, marketing, and security. NEC's work has been praised for its performance, especially in the user experience space.

The company was also positioned as a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Artificial Intelligence Services 2021 Vendor Assessment.

"Vision AI is one of the emerging technology markets," said Christopher Lee Marshall, associate VP, AI and analytics strategies, IDC Asia/Pacific. "It is critical to watch major vendors and more mature market solutions because the early movers tend to consolidate their strengths with greater access to training data, more iterations of algorithm variations, deeper understanding of the operation contexts that are inclusive of constraints and noises, and more systematic approaches to work with solution partners in the ecosystem."

"NEC develops top-class AI/Biometrics technologies and offers high value-added solutions to customers and society in order to navigate a wide range of conditions flexibly and quickly," said Hitoshi Imaoka, Fellow, NEC Corporation. "This recognition from IDC celebrates our achievements and our philosophy of providing the best-in-class technology to the market."

NEC's expertise in AI/Biometrics and continuous R&D highlight the company's commitment to innovation and business strategy in the artificial intelligence domain.

Furthermore, NEC has been advancing the use of AI in various sectors, including national digital identity projects that facilitate inclusive citizen-centric services, smart cities, hospitality, healthcare, retail, financial services, manufacturing and transportation, and more.
