New AI anti-counterfeit technique resists removal

A new method of anti-counterfeiting called DeepKey is being pioneered by researchers at the National University of Singapore (NUS).

DeepKey uses two-dimensional material tags and AI-enabled authentication software. This new authentication technology can be applied to different high-value products, ranging from electronics to drugs and jewellery.

Compared to conventional anti-counterfeiting technologies, DeepKey works faster, achieves highly accurate results, and uses durable identification tags that are not easily damaged by environmental conditions such as extreme temperatures, chemical spills, UV exposure, and moisture, says the NUS press release. 

The researchers published their results in scientific journal Matter on 2 December 2020. This study was conducted in collaboration with researchers from Anhui University of Technology and Nanyang Technological University.
