Video surveillance systems are increasingly becoming vital tools for protecting people and property. The increasing availability and lower cost of high-quality video cameras has increased the reach and the effectiveness of deploying and efficiently using video analytics systems. Even though video data often provides a very high amount of information, this data has not been efficiently used by analytical systems due to the challenges and complexities in processing video data. We have built a system to help address these challenges by leveraging cutting-edge image-processing and deep-learning based methodologies, combined with best-in-class data engineering practices to build video analytics systems. The system is built to read multiple streaming feeds from cameras as well as other sensor systems. The streaming data is analysed using machine learning methods (including deep learning methods) to perform various tasks – eg: face recognition on scaled streaming data.

In this talk, we will share our recent effort in joining multiple streams of data (video + other sensor), capturing the image at event/time and realising on how to implement algorithms like deep learning algorithms for face recognition at scale among others.
