Kogniz is reinventing video security

Today’s video security and analytics solutions aggregate streams of video from surveillance cameras and allow personnel to review live or recorded video. As the number of surveillance cameras across the globe grows to over one billion cameras, relying on humans to scan video and identify problems is unrealistic, severely limiting the utility of current products. Kogniz is reinventing video security by using next generation facial and object recognition technologies to automatically watch for problematic people and situations in real time. With AI and machine learning, our platform is able monitor existing surveillance camera streams to identify people on a blacklist, detect dangerous objects such as a weapon, and flag suspicious behaviors such as loitering. Kogniz can confirm authorized people in an area and optionally open a door or turnstile when they are recognized.

Kogniz has developed a high-tech cloud-based architecture that combines AI and proprietary data models in a breakthrough serverless edge-based architecture.
