Artificial intelligence allows machines to perform work previously done by humans. When it comes to security and surveillance, cameras and control room equipment that uses this technology can detect a multitude of threats automatically and in real time across hundreds or even thousands of cameras. This allows security teams to take immediate action to protect people and assets.
Video surveillance cameras are the electronic eyes of every security process. In the past, human surveillance was required to understand the captured images and to assess whether or not certain events represented a security risk. For some organizations that use hundreds or even thousands of cameras to protect their employees and assets, manual review of footage is simply not possible. This can lead to security vulnerabilities.
To help organizations meet this challenge and optimize their safety, Hikvision has equipped our surveillance solutions with advanced artificial intelligence. This means that our cameras, control room equipment and back-end infrastructures can now identify potential threats to themselves by recognizing people, vehicles and even behaviors.
Improving all aspects of security through proactive detection and prevention Teams were frequently responding to security breaches by manually intervening with traditional security systems. Artificial Intelligence is changing all this by identifying potential threats before they impact the company's people or assets. This allows security teams to respond immediately to neutralize potential threats.
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 license plate enters a location. With alerts sent in real-time, teams can detect and respond to security threats, as well as protect people and assets more effectively. And because alerts are automated, potential threats are barely overlooked or overlooked.
How does artificial intelligence work?
Artificial intelligence systems become more intelligent over time, building databases of potential threats, and responding appropriately to new events. In this way, systems can think for themselves and alert teams to suspicious events or people caught in front of the camera.
- Hikvision's Artificial Intelligence technologies use advanced algorithms based on deep learning to distinguish between different types of security events and threats. The technologies included in the Hikvision portfolio include:
- Face Detection: Enables law enforcement to identify officers, suspects and business teams to identify VIP customers in real time.
- Vehicle Identification: Identifies vehicle license plates and identifies different vehicle types (including make and model), or triggers alerts when vehicles enter restricted areas.
- Perimeter Protection: With this protection, businesses can detect real threats by differentiating people and vehicles from other moving objects and keeping false positives to a minimum.
- Business Intelligence: Uses People Counting, Queue Discovery, and Heat Mapping technologies to help organizations increase operational efficiency with the Data Report.
Why is artificial intelligence good news for business?
Artificial intelligence is not only useful for detecting security threats - even if this is one of the main strengths of the technology. It can also help companies increase their competitiveness and economic success.
For example, VIP customers who choose to participate in special marketing campaigns or other incentives can be identified so that employees can provide the right kind of service at the right time. This allows organizations to personalize the service experience, drive loyalty, and maximize customer lifetime revenue.
In the same way, artificial intelligence can help companies better understand customers and better meet their needs - leading to more commercial opportunities. A feature called People Counting allows stores and business centers to track attendance at peak times to ensure that staff are optimally attuned to demand. At the same time, stores can see which parts of the building are most frequently visited by customers and adjust their merchandising and product positioning to maximize sales opportunities.
