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.
