SAN DIEGO — FaceChex has announced the launch of its Kickstarter program and is set to celebrate this initial milestone with a special launch party tonight — both online via video and at the company’s office.

FaceChex is consumer identity protection through image recognition and artificial intelligence designed to protect images from piracy. Based on the company’s commercial DMCAForce technology for online businesses, FaceChex targets image identity theft and identity hacking, social influencing and catfishing, plus child exploitation and child pornography.

Set for tonight, Tuesday, October 17, from 6:30-10:30 p.m., the in-office launch party will feature food, drinks, and entertainment, with remote supporters able to take in the fun via the live video feed.

According to FaceChex’s Mark Bauman, the more donations received the first day, today, the higher the project ranks on Kickstarter.

“We need your help, we are looking to raise in the next 40 days, $50,000 [and] our ultimate goal is $500,000,” Bauman says. “This will mean the world for so many people out there.”

A video walkthrough of the technology is available here.
