Excerpt from Investorideas.com Article
Investorideas.com, a global investor news source covering security and Artificial Intelligence issues a special edition of The AI Eye, looking at how AI is playing a significant role in the future of security.
As AI technology is optimized and becomes more available, its implementation into both cyber and real-world security is fast becoming a necessity in staying ahead of future threats. AI has many obvious uses in the world of cybersecurity but that doesn’t mean it can’t be applied to real world security situations just as well.
omniQ, Inc. a provider of Supply Chain and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based Machine Vision solutions, announced that it was selected to install a state-of-the-art AI-based safety and security system on the campus of a Pre-K – 12 preparatory School in South Florida. This system will provide enhanced safety for students, faculty and visitors to the school. For safety reasons the name of the school is not disclosed.
The omniQ Safe School System is based on technology from omniQ’s recently acquired subsidiary omniQ Image Processing and offers real-time, automated vehicle recognition via machine vision. In a school setting, the system is hosted on a cloud-based platform integrated with campus intelligence, tracking vehicles, students, staff, deliveries and campus visitors. The Safe School System has whitelist and blacklist capabilities to immediately identify vehicles upon arrival, allowing the admittance of authorized cars or a real-time alarm for any unauthorized and/or suspicious vehicle.
AI implementation is fast becoming a necessary security feature, as large tech firms such as Palo Alto Networks Inc. and Microsoft Corp. are showing, which is good news for customers and consumers as these new features allow for tireless protection in an age of information fatigue.
