AI analytics on the edge

Today, the use of AI is spreading to every facet of video surveillance. As such, while AI itself might not be so much of a “new” trend, edge-based AI is expected to become more prevalent.

“AI represents the most significant opportunity to leverage huge investments made historically in surveillance networks worldwide, as well as re-define how new surveillance systems are designed and used, to bring better operational value to the users and to increase overall security and safety in the surveilled sites,” explained Itsik Kattan, CEO of Agent Video Intelligence (Agent Vi). “AI is maturing in the spectrums of functionality, accuracy levels and affordability, and is representing a great ROI opportunity for many surveillance users.”

Today, most security cameras send the data they collect to servers to be analyzed,reduces the burden of transferring and storing large amounts of data to a server, thereby increasing efficiency, saving time and reducing server costs.

Enhanced cybersecurity

As the number of devices connected by IoT continues to increase, so does the risk of cyberattack. 

Cybersecurity will continue to improve through legislation and best practices for network-enabled IoT devices, which will impact the products manufacturers deliver in terms of their security.

On January 1 of this year, the US state of California implemented new law SB-327 requiring manufacturers of connected devices to equip devices with “a reasonable security feature or features that are appropriate to the nature and function of the device, appropriate to the information it may collect, contain or transmit, and designed to protect the device and any information contained therein from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure, as specified.”

(This law only applies to devices used in California.)

Higher attention to privacy

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) made waves in 2018 as the strongest data protection law in the world. As Europe’s framework for data protection laws, it protects the personal data of all EU citizens within and outside the EU. Since then it has become a model for other countries looking to strengthen its own data protection laws, including the recently enacted California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the state of California — the CCPA became effective on January 1, 2020.
