With the increasing popularity of AI in the business world, you may be thinking how can I use AI in my business? Well, for one thing, it can help keep your business safer with HikVision’s new line of network cameras and NVRs.
Artificial Intelligence allows machines to do jobs previously done by people. When it comes to security and surveillance, this technology allows cameras and control room equipment to identify a wide range of threats automatically and in real time across hundreds or even thousands of cameras – allowing security teams to take immediate action to protect people and assets.
Video surveillance cameras are the electronic eyes of any security operation. In the past, human supervision was needed to make sense of the images captured, and to assess whether certain events posed a security risk or not. With some organizations using hundreds or even thousands of cameras to protect their people and assets, manual review of footage is simply impossible – potentially leaving them vulnerable to security breaches.
To help organizations overcome this challenge, and to optimize their security, Hikvision has built advanced Artificial Intelligence technology into our surveillance solutions. This means that our cameras, control-room equipment, and back-end infrastructure can now ‘learn’ about potential threats for themselves by recognizing people, vehicles and even behaviors.
Improving all aspects of security with ‘proactive’ detection and prevention
The manual interventions needed with traditional security systems mean that teams were frequently reacting to breaches that had already happened. Artificial Intelligence changes all this by recognizing potential threats before they impact the company’s people or assets – allowing security teams to react immediately to neutralize any potential threat.
For example, Hikvision Artificial Intelligence solutions can automatically trigger alerts when a person appears in a restricted area, or when a vehicle with a blacklisted number plate enters a site. With alerts delivered in real time, teams can identify and react to security threats and protect people and assets more effectively. And because alerts are automated, potential threats are hardly missed or overlooked.
How does Artificial Intelligence work?
Artificial Intelligence systems become more intelligent over time, building databases of potential threats and reacting to new events accordingly. This allows systems to ‘think for themselves’ and to alert teams of any suspicious events or people who are caught on camera.
Hikvision’s Artificial Intelligence technologies use advanced algorithms based on Deep Learning to distinguish between different kinds of security events and threats. Technologies incorporated into the Hikvision portfolio include:
• Facial recognition – which allows law enforcement personnel to identify suspects and commercial teams to identify VIP customers in real time.
• Vehicle identification – which can be used to identify vehicle number plates, and recognize different types of vehicles (even down to make and model), or to trigger alerts when vehicles enter restricted areas.
• Perimeter protection – which helps organizations to identify real threats by distinguishing people and vehicles from other moving objects and keeping false alarms to a minimum.
