NEXT GEN AI SECURITY TECH
PANASONIC IS ALSO, according to Newsweek.com, developing a “total surveillance system” that can integrate tens of thousands of fixed and mobile cameras and sensors for advanced situational awareness. The 360° fish-eye lens surveillance cameras will be combined with image-processing software and built-in directional microphones to accurately recognise (and even translate) voices and noises in a specific area. This will enhance counter-terrorism, while complying with privacy legislation. Separately, a system utilising artificial intelligence to analyse images from high-definition surveillance cameras and cameras fitted on security guards is being developed to identify suspicious individuals or activities. “We are having AI learn the movements of thieves, pickpockets and people carrying knives as well as people around them,” Kunio Hoshiba, an official of Sohgo Security Services, commonly known as ALSOK, is quoted as saying.
