22 Feb Nvidia Partnership to Use Facial Recognition Surveillance for Smart Cities
Last Thursday, Nvidia announced its partnership with AI developer Any Vision to integrate automatic facial recognition into closed-circuit television surveillance cameras.
Any Vision says that the technology can automatically identify and track individuals with 99% accuracy and compare the results with criminal databases using an algorithm. Concerns have been raised, however, that the amount of sensitive biometric data the system will collect may become a hot target for hackers.
The initiative is part of Nvidia’s Metropolis program where the company partners with other industry leaders to bring AI powered surveillance technology for city modernization efforts.
