Avigilon Corp. is currently previewing its new Unusual Motion Detection (“UMD”) video analytics technology at ISC West 2017.
UMD is an artificial intelligence technology designed to “continuously learn what typical activity in the scene looks like and focus the operator’s attention on atypical events needing further investigation”, according to Avigilon.
UMD is able to automatically detect unusual events, such as a vehicle moving in the wrong direction on a road, or a crowd running in panic in a public space, the company explains.
“A critical mass has been reached in the volume of video data captured today and the limits of human attention,” said Mahesh Saptharishi, Avigilon’s chief technology officer. “Through the power of AI, we continue to develop technology that better focuses human attention to what matters most in order to dramatically increase the effectiveness of security systems.”
Existing customers will be able to upgrade certain legacy products, Avigilon adds.
