CNL Software expands IPSecurityCenter to support Herta face detection software

#artificialintelligence

CNL Software has entered into a technology partnership with Herta Security under the CNL Software Technology Alliance Program. Herta develops user-friendly software solutions that enable the integration of facial recognition in security applications. According to the announcement, Herta's deep learning algorithms encode faces directly into small templates, which are very fast to compare and yield more accurate results. This provides a technological advantage when working with partners, as it allows the development of more robust, safer and efficient solutions. IPSecurityCenter PSIM takes a vendor agnostic approach to implement flexible and scalable security management software.


Making face recognition less biased doesn't make it less scary

MIT Technology Review

In the past few years, there's been a dramatic rise in the adoption of face recognition, detection, and analysis technology. You're probably most familiar with recognition systems, like Facebook's photo-tagging recommender and Apple's FaceID, which can identify specific individuals. Detection systems, on the other hand, determine whether a face is present at all; and analysis systems try to identify aspects like gender and race. All of these systems are now being used for a variety of purposes, from hiring and retail to security and surveillance. Many people believe that such systems are both highly accurate and impartial.


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

#artificialintelligence

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.


Judge Andrew Napolitano: Police surveillance cameras and facial recognition technology threaten our privacy

FOX News

Judge Napolitano's Chambers: Judge Andrew Napolitano breaks down why the Fourth Amendment is an intentional obstacle to government, an obstacle shown necessary by history to curtail tyrants. A trial in Great Britain has just concluded with potentially dangerous implications for personal freedom in the U.S. Great Britain is currently one of the most watched countries in the Western world – watched, that is, by its own police forces. In London alone, one study found that more than 420,000 surveillance cameras were present in public places in 2017. What do the cameras capture? Everything done and seen in public.


Dubai CCTV cameras to use AI, face recognition

#artificialintelligence

Dubai: Thousands of CCTV cameras of various Dubai government agencies will now provide live feed to a central command centre, officials said. Under a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) network, security cameras across will relay live images of security breaches live to the central command centre, Dubai Police said. The cameras will monitor criminal behaviour in three sectors -- tourism, traffic and bricks and mortar facilities. The network, said the police, is being phased in via different stages to meet the Dubai 2021 Vision requirements of a smart city. Announcing the programme, Major-General Khalil Ebrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs, said the new project called'Oyoon' (eyes) will tackle crimes in the city and help reduce traffic accident deaths and congestion.
