Deep Learning Startup DNNCam Wants Your Custom Analytics Jobs

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Sep 07, 2017

Analytics manufacturers frequently turn away custom video analytics requests, as they can be challenging and costly to tackle. A recent startup, Boulder AI, with its DDNCam, is doing the opposite, building its entire business model on tackling these kinds of projects.

Boulder AI's founder and CEO, Darren Odom, shared details with IPVM on the company, and why they feel they can solve problems other analytics manufacturers tend to ignore. We analyze their approach, their potential to impact the security industry and concerns in this report.
