Eago Systems is testing groundbreaking AI technology for video recognition on the city's camera system in Ostrava.
Artificial intelligence, positioned behind the existing camera system, observes unusual and suspicious movements on the streets. For example, a person lying on the sidewalk is a situation that the AI technology records and automatically reports to the police or security personnel. Initial results show exceptional accuracy in recognition. The technology is particularly suitable for a large number of cameras. Monitoring activities on all surveillance monitors would require an army of workers, but AI reliably and precisely replaces them.
Image detection using AI has been known mainly in the industry, where it detects inaccuracies and defects in products that the human eye often cannot see. Its use is also recognized in medicine, especially in diagnostics. After dynamic development in recent years, especially in terms of accuracy and recognizability, AI-powered image detection is now making its mark in the field of security. In addition to reducing the number of incidents that detecting suspicious situations will bring, significant savings in operational and wage costs for surveillance center personnel are noteworthy. Cities and security agencies will gradually reduce teams operating cameras. The saved funds can be invested, for example, in strengthening patrols on the streets.
