Security video monitoring has experienced a golden boom period. In recent years, many security enterprises have deployed their tentacles to some fields not belonging to security, such as Hikvision layout visualization management, warehouse intelligent management, UAV and other fields, Dahua shares layout machine vision, automobile field, etc. So, the security industry seems no longer the original security industry, the industry seems to be moving towards a pan security era, security cameras also began to move towards a new direction. And the security industry and artificial intelligence match, the security industry these points are worth us to ponder.
1、 Fixed camera popularity
If the era of big data is coming, the camera, as an important sensor in the city, has inherent advantages in timely obtaining a large number of video image data. However, with the development of mobile Internet and Internet of things technology, this front-end acquisition function has gradually moved to more public facilities or mobile devices (Mobile phones, dash recorders), etc.
Bjorn Skou eilertsen, chief technology officer of milestone systems, said: "video has created 90% of the world's data in the past two years, but the data collected by mobile phones, portable devices, UAVs and so on are increasing year by year. Therefore, I believe that in less than five years, more than 50% of the data sources in video management systems will not be fixed cameras."
If we connect the movie clips in "speed 7", one of the differences between "Tianyan" and our real video monitoring system is also this. Chen Dan, program director of the product and solution Department of Shenzhen Yuntian lifeI Technology Co., Ltd., put forward: "there is still a distance between the current coverage and the number of installation of the acquisition equipment and the film. All the devices with cameras in the film can act as the acquisition terminal. This is different in our reality. It is impossible to realize the unified adjustment of so many devices in a period of time now and in the future Degree use. "
In the future, with the acceleration of hardware analysis ability and the development of the Internet of things, the limitations of fixed cameras will be broken in the future. Although we still can't accurately judge this period of time, it is an inevitable trend that fixed cameras fall out of favor.
2、 The ability of aggregation and automation has been enhanced
In the past, when we looked at the camera or we could see it as a fixed sensor, it was a very conventional item. However, with the development of network, there are 1.4 billion cameras working in the world. Some of them are integrated and connected with each other, and all these are convergence.
The system under aggregation will face Pb level video information. How to realize such huge and complex data operation is impossible only by human resources. The concept of more automatic ability or intelligence will be proposed, and artificial intelligence is regarded as the key to trigger qualitative change of video monitoring industry.
Through the neural network algorithm, the camera has been able to initially achieve the prediction of human behavior, breaking the shackles of technology, and the video industry is gradually moving forward in advance.
Professor Wang Zhihua, deputy director of the Institute of microelectronics at Tsinghua University, said in an interview with the media: "but no matter in the field of security or Internet transmission, as long as you are a knowable application, you should honestly say that you are doing application and image analysis, rather than yelling at the so-called" artificial intelligence. " If from a rigorous scientific attitude to the current "Security + AI" positioning, the author is still that the improvement of automation ability will be a word that seems not so popular, but it is very consistent.
3、 The end of the era of omnipotence?
It's an interesting topic. It may not be appropriate to talk about it here, but from a technical point of view, it really won't happen. No matter Huawei or Dell, these "old drivers" who have been immersed in the ICT industry for many years have paid more attention to openness and cooperation. In the security industry, some UTV and Kodak have made great efforts in these words.
In the stage of technological change, especially breaking the barriers of traditional industries, all kinds of unknown challenges and technical problems will force enterprises to cooperate. Bjorn Skou eilertsen, chief technology officer of milestone systems, said: "in my opinion, the days of a company trying and doing everything are over. We all need to move forward collectively, and the trend of automation and convergence in the industry will make it difficult to do it alone. "
Finally, for example, Huawei's security is creating a brand-new ecological cooperation based on the principle of not doing applications on the top and not touching the data down. Meanwhile, UTV technology is also proposing uniview solution enabling engineering this year. They are doing one thing at a time: equipment and solution suppliers, cooperating with others, sharing with others, and reshaping the industry value. There are many other manufacturers, which are not listed here.
Perhaps in this age of pursuing interests, these behaviors seem clumsy, but the industry needs crazy "fools" to infect more people in order to form a more inclusive and healthy ecological environment.
