Can this AI find a terrorist in a surveillance video?
American video analytics firm IronYun recently pitched AI software that can screen live feeds simultaneously (or historical video data) and make it searchable for items and people in the videos. For example, analysts could search for a suspect that was wearing a black shirt, white shoes, and carrying a brown briefcase while climbing into a blue car. Facial recognition software also makes up to 30 facial features searchable, including features such as baldness, facial hear, and glasses. The software is already in use in a number of settings across 15 countries, mostly to guard against theft and reduce the role of security guards. Government customers, however, include the DEA and the FBI.
