Deep Learning Surveillance Startups Deep Problem

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 23, 2017

The undeniably good news for the video surveillance market is that we are seeing the rise of more startups than in many years.

The cause of this is clear - deep learning / 'artificial intelligence' / the next wave of video analytics. While video analytics in video surveillance had its initial entry almost 15 years ago, this one promises to deliver far higher accuracy and intelligence.

But even if the technology delivers, a critical business problem remains for these startups.
