Will #cameras take over the market for perimeter #security? | #ESC_LLC #VideoSurveillance | How will perimeter security look in the future? Most of the experts that Detektor and securityworldmarket.com met up with believe that cameras will not take over completely, but there are exceptions http://ow.ly/Q9mb30qQSV5

OPINION: Many years ago I wrote an opinion piece for the ISIO where I described intrusion detection/security at some future time. Here it is in a nutshell: 1) Cameras will be wireless, 2) they’ll be peel and stick, 3) they will provide a 360 forward view, 4) you can choose your view in software.

Secondly, there will be no switches on doors or motion detection. There will be no access control card readers, no smartphone entry options, etc. Traditional security will be replaced by video surveillance systems that uses AI with facial recognition. Anyone approaching the door who is known by the system, authorized at that door and that time  period will be automatically granted access. Tailgating also will be handled by the AI portion of the system. 

After hours, someone breaking into the facility will be met by an alarm and the perpetrator will be investigated by a roving  mobile unit equipped with audio and video. Police (if they will exist) will be alerted straight away. 

Those that press a button on a door speaker will have an opportunity to converse with the AI in an attempt to ascertain who they are and what they want. If they proceed to pry the door open, jimmy the lock, etc., the police will be notified and an alarm will sound locally.

Incidentally, if the Left is successful in having all law enforcement defunded and removed from protecting our communities; after the murders, rapes, robberies and other crimes rise sharply, police will be brought back to protect the innocent. Either that or warlords and community militias will spring up across the land and the world will be cast back into a dark ages-style environment.  –Al Colombo

NEC Developing Facial Recognition Platform for Star Alliance Frequent Flyers

facial recognition, FAA, airlines (image)#NEC Developing Facial Recognition Platform for Star Alliance Frequent Flyers | #TpromoCom #FacialRecognition #Airline #Security | The opt-in platform will allow passengers of Star Alliance’s member airlines to move through various checkpoints without the need for a passport or a boarding pass, using only biometric authentication to enter lounges or pass through boarding gates and check-in kiosks at participating airports.

The proposed system is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2020. Star Alliance members will be able to let their passengers use a mobile device to enroll in the program, and the latter will only need to do so once to enable biometric authentication when flying with any Star Alliance airline at an airport that supports the biometric technology.

Controversy over facial recognition tech grabs headlines as GSX 2019 opens | #TpromoCom #VideoSurveillance #FacialRecognition #Security #GSX | Despite advancements in technology and expanding applications, many ethical and legal questions still surround the technology’s use.

GSX 2019 began this week with several of the ASIS Councils meeting to discuss objectives, succession planning and the new move to “virtualizing” interest in the ASIS Council verticals through “communities” or ASIS International’s version of member-accessed user forums. In this more centralized Council focus, deliverables are made more widely accessible to the membership, improving value.

Day 1 of the conference had a number of unique education sessions, with one about “Managing Diverse Collections of Visual Data,” or how video surveillance and acoustic detection continues to present law enforcement with a staggering amount of information. Public/private partnerships leverage industrial IP camera systems for NGOs to securely share digital multimedia content with agencies.

An Outdoor Video Surveillance System that Thinks and Acts Like a Human

An Outdoor Video Surveillance System that Thinks and Acts Like a Human | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #VideoSurveillance #AI | I’d like to tell you about a new, revolutionary outdoor CCTV product that is like none other. I use the word “revolutionary” because it is just that. It leverages the use of quality Megapixel/HD quality, pan-tilt-zoom cameras with machine learning and an entirely newly developed series of audio, thermal, and radar-oriented sensors. Add to that an AI (Artificial Intelligence)-based learning control platform and you have an almost human-like control system with Big Data analysis. http://bit.ly/2KKKhEc

The focus of this new tech is outdoor protection. It uses thermal, sound, and radar to focus in on moving targets, along with a Smartphone app that stakeholders can use to alert the system when there’s a potential problem of an immediate nature. Cameras automatically  follow targets, which is not entirely new, but that’s just the beginning of the story.

The uniquely developed sensors allow the system to hear, see, and detect what the camera cannot see using a variety of unique sensors that truly makes this system revolutionary. Interaction between this interactive, integrated video surveillance system and stakeholders is audio/visual in nature, further deterring would-be assailants. 

Currently the system operates using a unique machine learning system, but an AI (Artificial Intelligence) processing system is now in the works and will soon be incorporated, giving the system the ability to react with even more speed and intelligence. Through Big Data analysis, over time the system will learn the habits and trends associated with each camera within each specific setting, thus enabling the system to  quickly identify departures from the norm. There’s more. 

I’d like to propose a complementary story on the tech with a short interview with the developer, who happens to be John Collings, the former inventor and developer of Uplink. A sidebar will delve into the advancements in AI and how they will be leveraged to make this new technology a must-have for office complexes, shopping malls, multiple-tenant housing, industrial complexes, chain stores, etc.

Underestimated Risk & Overestimated Security: When All You Do Is React, it May Be Too Late

Underestimated Risk & Overestimated Security: When All You Do Is React, it May Be Too Late | #TpromoCom #AI #Webinar #Security | For decades, IT professionals have been fighting malware, hackers, and other threats. Data protection, confidentiality, integrity and availability have long been threatened not only by amateur hackers, but by profit-oriented, well-organised criminals. Victims can usually only react because many of the usual methods for detecting malware require knowledge about specific attack techniques, about the behavior or about signatures of specific malware families.

Artificial intelligence (AI) in cyber security shows how things can be done differently – predictively and preventively. In this webcast, Jan Tietze of Cylance explains how you can stay one step ahead of attackers and protect yourself against tomorrow’s threats. Watch to learn more about:

  • What makes security solutions with AI so special;
  • What the mathematical approach in security tools is all about;
  • How to detect attackers and automate your response;
  • Why your company in particular can benefit from AI security.

Camvi Technologies Ranked #1 by NIST in Advanced Face Recognition

Camvi Technologies Ranked 1 by NIST in Advanced Face Recognition | #TpromoCom #Camera #FacialRecognition #VideoSurveillance | Camvi Technologies announced today that its advanced face recognition technology was ranked #1 for Wild Image accuracy in the most recent Face Recognition Vendor Tests (FRVT) conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). (Please scroll down)

Camvi Technologies announced today that its advanced face recognition technology was ranked #1 for Wild Image accuracy in the most recent Face Recognition Vendor Tests (FRVT) conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

FRVT provide independent government evaluations of commercially available and prototype face recognition technologies. These evaluations are designed to provide U.S. Government and law enforcement agencies with information to assist them in determining where and how facial recognition technology can best be deployed. In addition, FRVT results help identify future research directions for the face recognition community.

FRVT measure the performance of face recognition technologies that are applied to a wide range of civil, law enforcement, and homeland security applications. The FRVT report includes measurements of accuracy, speed, storage and memory consumption, and resilience.

In the FRVT report released by NIST on November 15, 2018, Camvi’s face recognition algorithm was ranked #1 in the world as the most accurate algorithm for the Wild Image dataset among algorithms submitted by 56 companies. Unconstrained wild images are the most challenging for face recognition, as they represent every day real-world images, as seen in surveillance footage and photojournalism. Wild images, as stated in the report, have resolution that varies very widely and are very unconstrained, with wide yaw and pitch pose variation. Wild image faces can also be occluded, including hair and hands. In addition to its industry-leading accuracy, Camvi’s face recognition technology is among the fastest and most scalable in the world.

“We are very pleased that our advanced face recognition technology was recognized by NIST as a top-ranking technology,” said John Chen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Camvi Technologies Inc. “We have put a tremendous amount of effort into developing the fastest, most accurate and most scalable face recognition technology and our efforts were reflected in the latest FRVT results. We are very confident of the immediate and broad applicability of Camvi’s solutions in a wide range of applications.”

Camvi’s state-of-the-art, patent pending face recognition technology was recently chosen and showcased at the 51st ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Singapore in August 2018. Camvi’s core technology is embedded in its integrated suite of products including CamviServer, CamviEdge and CamviClient.

Reaping the benefits of automation and artificial intelligence

Reaping the benefits of automation and artificial intelligence | #TpromoCom #AI #ArtificialIntelligence #Automation | According to a study done by PwC, ‘Sizing the prize’ (2017), it is estimated that up to 14 percent of global GDP will be attributable to smart automation by 2030, an equivalent of $15 trillion in today’s economy. (Please scroll down)

On the flip-side, the landscape of the labour force is set to drastically change as automation takes over people’s jobs, leading to increased unemployment and redundancies.

With that in mind, the responsibility falls upon us as human beings to maximize on the positives and minimise on the negatives that this drastic change will most certainly bring. According to research conducted by PwC economists, building on that done by Frey and Osborne (Oxford University, 2013), automation of jobs in the years leading to the 2030s will occur in three successive waves namely the algorithm wave, the augmentation wave and the autonomy wave.
