AI Video Analytics Leveraging Deep Learning to Business Intelligence

Artificial intelligence, with its two popular components, deep learning and machine learning, is already driving innovation by offering improved data and business intelligence. When used in video surveillance, deep learning could speed up investigations by allowing rule-based alerts based on behavior or particular objects, and search and filter based on specific criteria.

Significant achievements have been seen in improving accuracy, increasing the granularity, and diversifying metadata, that would enable surveillance systems to ensure better security. It is believed among top market players that the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated a trend that was already happening, and more and more security related video analytics applications are being developed.   

India Software-Defined Camera Sales Forecast

Owing to rising communal violence, crime rate, and terrorism related activities, the software-defined camera sales in India has observed a remarkable growth. In addition to the increasing demand in government projects and industrial development, software-defined cameras are also being heavily installed in residences, transportation sector, and commercial establishments.

Also, ongoing government projects such as educational reforms, smart cities, and citywide surveillance have further fueled the demand for highly impactful software-defined cameras.  

Further, several state governments across the country have ordered the installation of surveillance solutions at quarantine centers and public places to help keep the track of COVID-19 guidelines being followed. This has majorly impacted the demand for software-defined camera within the country in a positive way.
