Leading video AI implementation enabler Staqu Technologies have recently launched a new audio analytics feature for JARVIS, it’s state-of-the-art video AI engine. Aimed at addressing the informational blind spots that currently exist in the CCTV monitoring and security space, the upgrade enables JARVIS to evaluate audio inputs from CCTV cameras, in addition to the video feed, to accurately identify and classify potentially dangerous events.
The fundamental idea behind Staqu’s latest feature rollout is simple: CCTV cameras can capture the ambient audio data from outside their direct field of vision that can be used to identify any disturbance or incongruous event. For instance, the sound of a glass shattering outside a physical store can denote burglaries, acts of vandalism, or sabotage in progress, while gunshots, screaming, and loud shouting typically indicate physical violence and a clear and immediate danger to life.
JARVIS’s audio analytics feature can evaluate this input to conduct accurate ‘scene or event classification’ and notify human responders in real-time to trigger the most appropriate situational response. This will improve the operational efficacy of law enforcement agencies and private security teams, enabling them to drastically shorten their response time to such events and contain them before they can escalate.
“The world that we live in is full of sensory inputs, both visual and aural. These inputs, when captured by CCTV cameras and analyzed through a state-of-the-art automated analytics engine such as JARVIS, can be utilized to bolster the safety and security of individuals, businesses, and communities in public and private spaces across the country. Our latest feature is aligned with this vision of leveraging cutting-edge technology to empower and ensure a safer and more secure India,” Atul Rai, Co-founder and CEO of Staqu Technologies, said in a statement.
With the rollout, JARVIS will also provide unique audio-based search functionality on its platform; one can search for any video activity just by presenting an audio query to JARVIS. This can help business owners and other authorized users – such as administrators and HR professionals – identify individuals not following standard operating procedures such as COVID-19 protocols, safety protocols, security guidelines, etc. at the workplace. The feature is designed to provide the necessary oversight for the Indian business ecosystem and optimize the search capability without the additional hassle of conducting manual filtering for such searches.
