Deep learning is a type of machine learning that trains a computer to perform human-like tasks, such as recognizing speech, classifying images, detecting objects, and even describing content. A real-life example is virtual assistants such as Siri and Cortana that are powered, in part, by deep learning.
Instead of organizing data to run through predefined equations, deep learning sets up basic parameters about the data and trains the computer to learn on its own by recognizing patterns using layers of processing. Fast developments of algorithms, neural networks, human-machine interfaces and computing power are now taking deep learning applications to new heights.
Deep learning has swept through the security industry too, enabling a number of solutions to support enhanced site security and operational efficiency. The benefits of deep learning for attribute recognition and image classification make it enormously valuable in the field of security. It touches on every aspect of the security industry – from facial and vehicle detection to behavior analysis.
When it comes to delivering the insights today’s organisations need, Hikvision is a pioneer in security and beyond. Our industry leading smart cameras and infrastructure solutions engineered with AI technology integrate a range of tools to support smarter decision making, from people counting and facial recognition, to vehicle recognition and automated security alerts.
The application for Hikvision’s smart technologies is virtually limitless. We help banks to protect employees, customers, branch offices and ATMs. We help retailers to understand footfall in their stores and optimise their merchandising strategies. And we help city authorities to reduce congestion and pollution with smart traffic management solutions.
