IBM Industry Summit: IBM Video Analytics For Smarter Government

leave a comment »

As mentioned in my earlier post, I’ve been attempting to mix things up a bit, and lo and behold, as I walked around the Industry Solutions Expo here at the IBM Industry Summit in Barcelona, I had the opportunity to speak with Hans Kahler about how IBM is applying smart video analytics in the public sector, bolstering public safety and learning all sorts of things about video “events.”

Imagine this: A single security camera in a big city like New York or Chicago can capture upwards of 50,000 events, per day (car passing by, pedestrian walking by, etc.). How to make sense out of it all and separate the unimportant “events” from the critical ones?

Watch the video and find out!
