When interacting with surveillance systems, we typically expect that someone is either watching the feed live or could potentially review the footage at a later date. These days, though, it isn’t uncommon for surveillance systems to be primarily reviewed by something that isn’t a person at all—artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence has truly blown open the doors on what is possible when it comes to developing and implementing new surveillance systems, which is why we want to take a look at just how the use of artificial intelligence has impacted the way we think about security altogether.
Parsing the Data
With a human operator behind the screen of a surveillance system, there is a huge amount of detail that needs to be worked for. It’s for this reason that many systems are only used retroactively, after an incident has already occurred, and are rarely operated by a human being regularly. Even if a person is monitoring the system, developing the pattern recognition skills to act proactively instead of reactively is a special talent, one that is always going to be bogged down by human error and is open to mistakes. Artificial intelligence allows us to harness the power of machine learning to develop rigorous pattern recognition protocols and create systems that allow professionals to do focus on their jobs and react quickly to any issues that may arise.
Better Attention to Detail
Older systems didn’t always have the best resolution, but any system that uses artificial intelligence to parse through the data is also going to have higher image quality, enabling algorithms to do their work. There are some details that a human operator simply isn’t going to pick up on, but artificial intelligence is able to pick up on those small details that would otherwise slip by.
The Future of A.I. Surveillance
While numerous surveillance systems already take advantage of the power of artificial intelligence, including those developed here at Gatekeeper, we expect to see even more improvements in the capabilities of artificial intelligence backed systems.
