Canny AI is an early-stage startup in Tel-Aviv, Israel. The company’s two founders are both ex-Israeli Army. Omer Ben-Ami described that he was a “software developer in the army unit here and then the intelligence unit, until I did a PhD in Theoretical Physics.” He was also a developer and worked in Israeli start ups. His co-founder is Jonathan Heimann who explained that he “studied computer science in Tel Aviv University and then I joined the army for over six years.”
Now a new company has emerged aimed at a similar market but with a different technical implementation. Canny AI is launching their VDR™(Video Dialogue Replacement) process to replace the dialogue in any footage. To demonstrate the approach, they released the video above which shows world leaders singing to John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’.
