Video analytics have been around for many years, but adoption has been slow because of inaccuracies and high cost. IvedaAI employs 30 patents in AI, big data analytics and cloud computing. It applies a deep learning algorithm (trained, not programmed), automates processes and uses natural language.

A new vehicle search system for video surveillance networks


A team of researchers at JD AI Research and Beijing University have recently developed a progressive vehicle search system for video surveillance networks, called PVSS. Their system, presented in a paper pre-published on arXiv, can effectively search for a specific vehicle that appeared in surveillance footage. Vehicle search systems could have many useful applications, including enabling smarter transportation and automated surveillance. Such systems could, for instance, allow users to input a query vehicle, search area and time interval to find out where the vehicle was located at different times during the day. Existing vehicle search methods typically assume that all vehicle images are cropped well from surveillance videos, using visual attributes or license plate numbers to identify the target vehicle within these images.

Ring Video Doorbell 2 review: A fun IoT device to boost your security


The Ring Video Doorbell 2 is an Internet of Things (IoT) device that allows you to see who is at the door -- whether you're at home or not -- and talk to them via your smartphone, tablet or PC. The idea is that you can keep an eye on legitimate visitors and anyone else who might be visiting your front door. The device can stream live video to your smartphone when someone rings the bell, or when it detects motion nearby. It can also record video for you to view later, or give you a live stream if you just want to see what's happening outside your home. The doorbell is quite bulky, measuring 12.83cm by 6.35cm by 2.74cm (5.1 x 2.5 x 1.1 inches), although the battery makes up a significant chunk of that.
