Self driving cars and personalized advertising are the most popular applications of AI. Everyone has different opinions on how these impactful changes will have on our everyday lives; it has been a topic of many dinner table debates. However, this wonderful technology is being adapted for more serious applications such as security as well.
Your current CCTV camera company probably depends on your watchman to pay constant attention to the monitor. Considering the stream of people that walk in and out of every society, shop, or commercial space this rarely works. Realistically, CCTV surveillance is mostly used to try to identify crooks after a crime has been committed. With AI, smart surveillance cameras that use facial recognition can scan images or live video stream to identify an individual with no human intervention. These systems, which function like a tireless security guard, can function as a high-end security alarm system for banks or even a people counting system in a mall. Monitoring real-time data against specific parameters helps screen unwanted elements from a central database that could be citywide or even worldwide. I feel at peace knowing that my family and home is protected by the same world-class security that was once found only at airports or government buildings.
Face detection has also become a key upgrade from the traditional biometric access control system in corporates. Besides attendance management and access control, it has additional features like identifying a VIP or blacklisted person or even behavior analytics to study employee behaviour. In large spaces such as storage facilities, it is easy to carry out illegal activities. Warehouse security camera systems with remote monitoring of CCTV ensure similar safety standards as the corporate office can be maintained in remote godowns. A businessman told me the best part of this system was that not only could it identify faces at a distance, but also send automatic warnings to the control room before the crooks would be alerted and have a chance to escape.
Now, as expected, crooks have also adapted to new technology to hack records or misuse data.
But however crafty they are altering an image leaves behind subtle indicators or digital fingerprints. The Al-based Zi-Check technology helps identify and eliminate such fraud in a business ecosystem. It can be used to trace and eliminate digital tampering in documents used for college admissions, bank loans, government funding, getting grants, securing a job or even bill clearance. Such anomaly detection helps detect fraudulent transactions and transfers faster, with more accuracy, and across entire databases. Protecting employee data is not just our duty, it is the law. An Aadhar Card Masking service that helps you to manage data in a way that complies with the new Aadhaar Act. This AI-powered system identifies the Aadhaar number on different formats of Aadhaar cards, and after masking the first 8 digits of Aadhaar number, replaces the original document in the database.
In this digitized, smart world that we live in Artificial Intelligence can help ensure crimes ranging from shoplifting to carjacking will soon be history. In fact by staying current we can ensure we are safe from digitized crimes as well. After all, a good workman always knows how to best leverage his tools. And with AI, the tools just got a lot smarter.
