The web service has initialy been developed by the Symonics GmbH within the IRKO research project, funded German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, funding code 01IS14027A. This product includes software developed by the Institute of Technical Acoustics (RWTH Aachen University) and by the Cognitive Systems group (University of Tübingen). The 3D face detection algorithms is by Prof. Luuk Spreeuwers (University of Twente).
