Whether you realize it or not, AI is here.

Object detection now plays a very important role in our lives, from face detection to unlock your smartphone to detecting bombs in public places such as airports, bus terminals, etc.

These features are a result of the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence research.

Here’s an article covering how TensorFlow can be used to identify objects.

Security and surveillance cameras are very widely used across organisations, so it is important to enhance their effectiveness while saving manpower costs and preventing human errors. In such scenarios, image/video analytics plays a very important role in performing real-time event detection, post-event analysis, and the extraction of statistical and operational data from the videos. Video analytics (VA) is the general analysis of video images to recognise unusual or potentially dangerous behaviour and events in real-time. It can perform three major tasks — provide information, offer assistance, and generate alerts.
