Nvidia To Launch CCTV Cameras With Facial Recognition System: Recently, Nvidia disclosed a partnership that will develop a technology of facial recognition for “smart cities” around the world. This time they have partnered with AnyVision – specializing in facial recognition will now work to provide Artificial Intelligence Facial recognition in surveillance camera systems.
This technology would allow surveillance cameras to “observe” everything 24 hours a day, automatically identifying individuals on the streets of large urban centers with 99% accuracy.
Algorithms that are used on this latest technology maps the database with the face of those identified so that they can identify known criminals and terrorists. The tech provided by AnyVision can also be used on other platforms, such as tablets and smartphones, as well as personal computers.
With the help of this new tech, companies could, for example, report the face of a suspected criminal to the database and receive notifications if he or she is close to a potential target (financial institutions, etc.) or even be able to identify terror suspects more quickly.
However, despite this apparent exposure of another’s life, AnyVision guarantees not to use data collected for other purposes, nor to pass on non-safety data. The latest project is part of Nvidia’s Metropolis Program, which brings together partners from all over the world to develop a security technology allied to artificial intelligence, in the near future, to apply in the big cities of the world.
So, it looks like criminals can now fear of being heard and watched. Everything indicates that, soon, we will be sure of that. What’s your opinion on this? Discuss with us in the comments below.
