The worlds largest technology fair, (CES), featured not only an area for big players but also Eureka Park, an entire hall dedicated to showcasing startups with the most innovative ideas. Sixteen ventures from Istanbul Technical University (ITU) ARI Teknokent took the stage at the popular four-day gathering this week in Las Vegas and showcased their innovations under the booth organized by the Istanbul Development Agency (ISTKA). One of these was Buyutech, which has developed a driver safety monitoring system for Turkey’s Automobile Joint Venture Group (Togg), a mobility-oriented technology company that is developing the country’s first domestically produced car. A research and development (R&D) company established in 2011 by Omer Orkun Diiztas and Alparslan Isikli, Biiyiitech is developing products and solutions in the fields of camera design and production and image processing. Its camera solutions feature monitoring of the exterior as well as the interior of cars to ensure greater safety. Running operations in more than 120 countries, it has been focusing among others on the automotive sector with its software and hardware solutions, including driver fatigue/ drowsiness detection, lane departure warning, surround-view system, dynamic cruise control, mirror camera and front and rear Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) cameras.

Syntonym was among the startups from ITU ARI Teknokent taking the stage in Eureka Park, an entire hall dedicated to showcasing startups, under the booth organized by the Istanbul Development Agency (ISTKA). Established in 2019 by Batuhan Ozcan and Emre Cavunt, Syntonym is an eighth-term graduate of PILOT, a startup acceleration program of Turk Telekom, one of Turkey’s leading information and communication technologies companies. The venture looks to address concerns around data breaches and data leakages stemming from the gathering of visual data in public spaces. It replaces faces in videos with Al-generated, non-existent ones preserving all key parameters such as age, gender, expressions and gaze direction. This process provides an opportunity of deep analytics extraction from synthetic data for the first time. It aims to help protect people’s privacy and says it does so in a way compliant with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It looks to solve the problems about data privacy of companies from many sectors, from automotive to shopping malls.
