Nicolas Loeillot – CEO – LM3Labs
LM3LABS launched a new service service called Xloudia that can recognize millions of images, products or buildings. Pronounced cloudia, the solution targets B2B integration into mobile applications. Until today, image recognition, which is necessary for most augmented reality applications on a mobile phone was limited by capabilities of the device. Reference images were limited to a hundred maximum. Xloudia relies on a cloud architecture to recognize millions of images leaving to the mobile the lighter task of extracting feature points from the camera video flow and rendering contents. Xloudia supports iOS and Android platforms and is available to large e-commerce companies as well as to independent app developers.

Bring them alive with million moments, a photo viewing and sharing application that lets you enjoy and share your favorite pictures in elegant, magazine-like layouts. Take, import, and browse pictures. Create albums without editing your images, import the pictures from your smartphone or your Facebook albums, or take new pictures from within million moments to create an album automatically.
