Some thoughts on AI tech into the video surveillance industry

The advancements made lately on artificial intelligence (AI) technology are resulting in its growing application in various industries around the world. Once only seen in Hollywood action and thriller movies, AI is increasingly being adopted in everyday life. This was made possible when AI researchers made a breakthrough in 2012, in which they successfully developed and tested the technique called deep learning. The disruptive development has led to the creation of the so-called deep neural network system, which is based on the functioning of the human brain. Under the system, the brain’s interconnected neurons were successfully translated into mathematical functions that can effectively distinguish images like the shape and textures of objects. Various improvements in the system have led to a significant increase in the number of things that the system can accomplish, including its ability to be trained in learning the facial features of a person and reliably identifying them over and over again.
