Our vision is to use AI to make physical spaces smarter and safer for companies

Over the next four years surveillance cameras will reach an installed base of over 1 billion. Organizations lack the budget to hire the manpower necessary to watch over their systems to detect problems and threats as they happen.

Kogniz is revolutionizing physical security by using machine learning to automate security camera monitoring and identify problems and threats in real time. For the first time, organizations of any size can have live, intelligent surveillance monitoring without additional security personnel.

The company is founded by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who have led multiple companies to successful exits. The Kogniz team comes from backgrounds in computer vision, artificial intelligence and digital security.
