Cognitive video analytics may go to the head of the “intelligent video” class
I love the security industry. It keeps me on my toes, that’s for sure. For example, some of you have heard me describe the current state of video analytics as “Analytics 1 dot 0” (1.0) – a little better than a Beta version of the concept. I’ve said that 2009 will show us our first glimpses of the next level of intelligent video.
Then I get a phone call from John Honovich, the prolific IP video critic at IPvideomarket.info, who said I ought to take a look at analytics startup BRS Labs. Behavioral Recognition Systems, Inc. has a different approach to video analytics.
The physical security market has long been lacking in innovation, but by combining machine learning with computer and video analysis, BRS Labs is ushering in the era of Video Analytics 2.0. Software which adapts to new scenes and learns from experience will no doubt detect critical events that rules-based systems will miss.
BRS Labs was not planning to exhibit its "Cognitive Video Analytics" at ASIS this year, but I invited the company to sponsor my SecurityDreamer event at the Hard Rock Cafe on Sunday. So to learn more about this innovative young company, don’t miss our Atlanta event.
