NVIDIA and AnyVision partner for facial recognition solution for smart cities
Facial recognition platform provider AnyVision has joined NVIDIA’s Metropolis Software Partner Program to provide AI and deep learning-powered automatic facial recognition for “smart city” CCTV deployments, according to an announcement.
NVIDIA Metropolis is a scalable system utilizing the company’s GPU processors to provide AI capabilities, and AnyVision’s proprietary algorithms. With optimization from NVIDIA’s GPUs, AnyVision can simultaneously process more than 40 video streams on a single server in real-time. The company plans to increase the number of streams on each server to 150 or more.
AnyVision’s technology can detect, track, and identify individuals within a large crowd with 99 percent accuracy, the company says, and has potential applications in a wide range of verticals.
“At AnyVision, our goal is to create a safer and more secure environment for a better tomorrow,” comments AnyVision Co-Founder and CEO Eylon Etshtein. “By working with NVIDIA and applying its technology, which enables us to employ our AI algorithms into our software, we will sustain a safe, accurate, and optimized system that provides effective security measures.”
As previously reported, smart city or “safe city” projects with facial recognition were announced for cities in Australia and Thailand in December.
