V5 Systems Showcases Market-Ready IoT Technology at Intel Partner Connect 2018


The Intel event, which is expected to be attended by approximately 2500 channel partners, has Dell EMC as one of its premier sponsors, a key technology partner with which V5 Systems has already implemented a number of turnkey IoT security solutions in the outdoors. The upshot of the event is for attendees to gain insights from Intel innovators and industry visionaries on how the IoT, along with artificial intelligence, virtual reality, the Cloud and other leading-edge technology applications, is contributing to the digital transformation of businesses. The event enables participants to accelerate their partnerships and identify new opportunities for profitability. V5 Systems has been invited to present its technology at the event because it has already established its leadership position in the Industrial IoT by implementing numerous real-world solutions. At Intel Partner Connect, V5 Systems, Intel and Dell EMC are changing the security space through technology and innovation.

How artificial intelligence will change the face of security in China


Long lines and lengthy waits for round after round of security checks are di rigueur at major events in China such as the annual meetings of its legislature. That may change in the near future with the use of facial recognition to red-flag people for further screening while allowing others to proceed, speeding up the process of letting thousands of delegates, journalists and staff into the Great Hall of the People, according to Baidu CEO Robin Li Yanhong, whose company is testing such a system at airports. "The measures to verify identification, such as the tight security checks during the Two Sessions, have brought inconvenience to people's lives," said Li, who is a delegate to the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. "Most of the time, people's identification is done manually, which I think will be completely unnecessary in the future," he told mainland Chinese media ahead of the event. Li's comments highlight the growing use of facial recognition in security applications in China, part of the nation's wider push to lead the world in artificial intelligence and a desire by the central government to improve public safety through surveillance of citizens.

Using blockchain to secure the 'internet of things' -- GCN


This article was first posted on The Conversation. The world is full of connected devices -- and more are coming. In 2017, there were an estimated 8.4 billion internet-enabled thermostats, cameras, streetlights and other electronics. By 2020 that number could exceed 20 billion, and by 2030 there could be 500 billion or more. Because they'll all be online all the time, each of those devices -- whether a voice-recognition personal assistant or a pay-by-phone parking meter or a temperature sensor deep in an industrial robot -- will be vulnerable to a cyberattack and could even be part of one.

Nobody likes airport security, here's how AI and video can fix that


There are few processes in life as nerve-wracking and tedious as going through security at an airport. Whether it's adhering to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) rules of removing laptops from bags, or navigating the seemingly endless, winding queue, getting screened before a flight is time-consuming. But with the help of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), researchers are working on integrating video surveillance with artificial intelligence (AI) to make this vital security process much smoother. The development new technology to streamline airport security has stagnated in recent decades. A lack of innovation, coupled with a need for increased screening in the wake of events like the 9/11 attacks, have only made the process worse.

UK to use machine learning to boost airport screening security


Government has selected eight projects that can improve threat detection capabilities and also speed up screening processes for passengers.

UK commits £1.8m to boosting airport security with AI


The UK government has sunk £1.8 million into the development of cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) to bolster security and help alleviate wait times at some of the country's busiest airports.

Keypoint Forensics – Video Analysis Software


There are over 245 million professionally installed video surveillance cameras in operation globally, but only one per cent of this footage is currently being analyzed. Video Triage intelligently reduces hours of video to just a handful of snapshots, and does so automatically! Quickly review large amounts of video and generate actionable intelligence.

Nvidia is creating surveillance cameras with built-in face recognition. Uh, great?


Nvidia has partnered with AI developer AnyVision to create facial recognition technology for "smart cities" around the world. The two companies will work to install automatic facial recognition into CCTV (closed-circuit television) surveillance cameras.

Empowering the edge-to-cloud AI Revolution Lanner


The upcoming industrial revolution is anticipated to improve productivity, cost-efficiency and corporate competitiveness, made possible by connected sensors, IoT applications and the soon-to- released 5G networks to enable real time data connections from people, objects and contexts. Artificial intelligence (A.I) plays a critical role to collect and analyze massive volumes of digitized data to enable AI computing in visual inspection for smart factory, physical security for city safety, mobile edge computing for self-driving transits and adaptive streaming for video broadcasting.
