AI for Video Analytics - A new Approach towards Advancement

By CIOReview | Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Major giants are striving hard to provide seamless experiences to their customers. The advanced systems, along with the falling storage costs and better compression algorithms have enabled organizations to capture and analyze the remarkable video content. Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools are in high demand and are widely used to analyze the video content without requiring time-intensive human interaction. Listed below are a few examples.

•  Public Safety

A video is a powerful medium for public safety. With facial recognition tools, law enforcement agents can keep track of individual present in an area and monitor or respond to that appropriately. It is undoubtedly difficult for a runaway to be in a place where facial recognition tools have gained prominence, and law agencies are relying on such devices. Moreover, with the introduction of video surveillance, the rate of crimes has fallen.

•  Theft Prevention

CCTV has become ubiquitous in all malls, and while they are carefully placed they can detect nearly all forms of theft. With video analytics, whenever a robbery takes place, AI systems alert the security personnel. The future theft detection systems will lead to fewer individuals to involve themselves in a theft case.

•   Retail Sector

Psychology plays a significant role in deciding a profit and loss margin for the retail industry as knowing where and how to display items of sale can help retailers understand how to pitch the customers. Video analytics can assist in providing robust feedback for the retailers and stores can also try various combinations and layouts and uncover those that more successful. The retail industry with machine learning and other algorithms are exploring the ways for customer engagement and generate better sales figure.

•   Manufacturing

In the manufacturing industry, warehouse management requires human labor, but when armed with video analytics, warehouse managers can entirely rely on automated tracking. Analytics tools can find ways to allow warehouses to work more efficiently and productively. Video monitoring can be used to detect product faults and also assess where the manufacturing process should be further optimized.

•  Transportation

Public transportations are an integral part of a city, and video analytics here can detect areas for improvement. Smart systems can keep a record of how many people use specific routes and can also track changes on a continuous basis. It can also inform governments about roads and infrastructure that requires maintenance. Monitoring the route of public help city planners to mitigate dangers and implement infrastructure that reduces uncertainty.

•  Healthcare

Videos and healthcare are a perfect fit for each other. Being able to track a patient’s health center lets doctors and other providers know where to reach their patients instantly. With facial recognition technology, staff members can be alerted if a patient tries to leave the facility and respond immediately. Video analytics is also helping in diagnosis, and therefore healthcare providers can rely on AI to aid their diagnostic capabilities.
