PANEL “Undoubtedly the trend towards higher resolutions is set to continue, and it’s only a matter of time before we’re seeing 8K more broadly. However, in the immediate future, we expect AI to be at the forefront of manufacturers’ minds” 26 (from previous page) run onboard the cameras. Looking to the future, we have anticipated the huge potential of AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology and will are collaborating on the intelligent video analysis platform which is currently being developed by NVIDIA. This will feature AI GPUs based on Deep Learning on security devices. We will be looking to develop AI cameras and storage devices capable of autonomously detecting abnormal movements and situations by utilising the NVIDIA platform which we will apply to our city surveillance, retail and traffic solutions. David Davies – DVS We have seen massive growth in HD analogue over the last couple of years, with no real sign of it slowing down. Some manufacturers now have 4K HD analogue solutions with the ability to power the cameras up the coax itself, eliminating the need for extra PSU, saving time and associated costs. This will surely be a big hitter this year. We have already seen a big adoption of 4K, with lower costs and improved algorithms and bandwidths, I can only see more users making the move to 4K. We are also now seeing a big push into products that contain AI, which offer a wider range of applications from False Alarm Filtering, Human Target Detection, Face Recognition, LPR and so on. As AI develops, I believe that in the not too distant future the actual image will become secondary to the other data types that the camera will provide (mentioned above). The technology will develop to become self-learning and self-autonomous, a ‘fit and forget’ solution with little or no programming needed. Sounds like Skynet? With many devices now supporting the GPU on the edge device and sending the Metadata to the server, this can make for a much improved and much reduced cost solutions. I believe over the next twelve to 24 months we will see more of these products appear in the market place, so watch this space! Andy Palmer – Seagate Undoubtedly the trend towards higher resolutions is set to continue, and it’s only a matter of time before we’re seeing 8K more broadly. However, in the immediate future, we expect AI to be at the forefront of manufacturers’ minds. Deep learning and analytics has the power to not just increase a business’s surveillance abilities, but benefit the businesses much more broadly. We’re already at a point where AI and analytics in surveillance is being used to analyse data very effectively – particularly for security monitoring. This is achieved by building a database of ‘queries’ or algorithms that can help organisations assess what is deemed ‘normal’ behaviour, and therefore allows systems to recognise suspicious behavior as it begins to emerge. However, for businesses to truly benefit from this type of surveillance AI and analytics, they need to consider much more than just the surveillance technology that they’re using. Businesses need to make sure that their hardware, such as hard drives, are robust enough to support the constant 24/7 analysis and data storage that’s needed. Hard drives built with AI and analytics in mind are ideal for intensive computational workloads that typically accompany AI work streams, giving the best support to your surveillance technology. www.psimagazine.co.uk
