A vast majority of recorded video data is never viewed. This isn’t for a lack of interesting content or inadequate resources, but rather a gradual decline in human attention spans. Adding more cameras increases the amount of video data collected, but if it’s not viewed, the useful information is missed. There is an imbalance between the amount of video data collected and the human attention available to effectively mine that data.
As security technology continues to evolve, exciting developments are taking place, with the inclusion of artificial intelligence (AI). Powerful tools are being created that will allow us to modify our approach to video search. AI makes video searchable, and enable alerts and automation, so we are no longer constrained by our attention spans.
Watch our Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Mahesh Saptharishi, discuss how AI and innovations such as Avigilon’s newly launched Appearance Search™ video analytics technology are changing the way we search video.
