Facial recognition software startup Kogniz launches first security camera product
California-based facial and pattern recognition startup Kogniz has launched its first product, AICam, which is based on the combination of advanced camera processing and cloud services that make up the Kogniz Edge Platform, according to a company announcement.
The software identifies people of concern from Watchlists, detects potential threats and issues warnings, provides access control with user notifications when an unauthorized individual is in a restricted area, identifies and remembers suspicious behaviours, and stores relevant video in a private and secure cloud vault, the company says.
“In business environments, surveillance requires identifying problematic people and situations in real time, something humans aren’t good at. Kogniz leverages computer vision, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to identify people and threats in real-time with extraordinary accuracy,” said Daniel Putterman, co-CEO and head of business for Kogniz.
AICam coordinates multiple cameras to provide cross-location coverage, and its architecture allows cameras to be added on-demand without new hardware or infrastructure.
Kogniz currently has pilot programs trialing its technology for law enforcement organizations, government agencies, banks, and corporations.
