Jeff Bezos-Funded Deep Sentinel Security Startup

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Jun 05, 2017

Deep Learning is a rising trend in many commercial security products, and now one entrepreneur wants to bring deep learning to residential security.

CEO/Founder Dave Selinger's company, Deep Sentinel has raised $7.4M from a number of investors, including Jeff Bezos to develop what he hopes will be a revolution in the home security industry.

In a recent conversation with IPVM, the CEO shared insights on the company and his vision for residential crime prevention. We analyze the opportunities and challenges of this approach.
