ipConfigure Google Search for Surveillance UI

Author: John Honovich, Published on Apr 22, 2013

One of the most interesting ads at ISC West featured a search for 'computer stolen from d' with autocompletion choices of 'stolen from desk', 'data center', etc. While this is common for computer search engines, like Google, doing this with your surveillance VMS is essentially unheard of. As such, this raised a lot of questions about ipConfigure, the company claiming to deliver a 'Natural Language Search Engine' for video surveillance, as show below:

** ***** *********** *** * ***** ***** ** ** ***** see ** ** ******:

First let me say, all ideas are good. Some lesser that others. Trying to wrap my thoughts around such a simplistic example.

Breaking it down to three parts. 1) Naming the object. 2) Creating the zone and naming it.

Using a 'laptop' (device and name) makes me wonder what percetage of time would the 'laptop' be on the 'desk' to begin with.

Also consider who might be the chooser of the names. An architect, plumber, seamstress, etc.

3) And then Google asking, did you mean xxx? Well we searched for yyy.

The results are kinda like today's images seen on the local news of a bank robber and asking the public if they recognize the person with the stocking over their face, with a wig on, or the unique clothing item.

All very time consuming. Just for a test run. And then hoping will work, 'IF' needed. Or google hasn't made another alteration in their ever changing usage criteria.

In any case. Someone will probably have an IPhone/Android 'App' for that.......... Yesterday.

this futures is avilable right now or after some time will be comes
