This report provides an overview of Hitachi's upcoming release, and limitations of the software.

...or that gathering and inputing enough datapoints to make the software more accurate becomes too costly and time consuming.

Perhaps they plan to integrate with their A/C analytics module?

Hitachi Creates Air Conditioner With Built-In Face Detection

The City of Santa Cruz (CA) has been running a competitor program/suite like described for a couple of years. We still have problems here in all the "hot spots". Save your money, and put more police on the beat.

We work with some cities that use the competitor program and many other departments are looking at the solution. The idea is to saturate the hot spots with a physical police presence.

Its doing more with less as its becoming more difficult to hire officers.
