Recently, NICE’s Dr. Bob Banerjee was interviewed for an article on Big Data for the new ASSA ABLOY Future Lab website. I invite you to read the full text of the article, the first of two articles in Future Lab’s Big Data series, below:
Cities, ports, transit systems, airports, and other infrastructure have some of the most complex security challenges today. From maintaining critical commercial services for the private sector to the government requirements that shape their operations, these entities must carefully balance safety with efficiency.
Organizations of all kinds are applying analytics to a wide range of problems, and law enforcement is no exception. With the proliferation of video surveillance, video analytics has become more common. But the scope of analytics is now broadening, to include video, speech, and text.
Casinos are expanding their purview of security beyond video surveillance into more advanced technologies and systems, such as PSIM (Physical Security Information Management), video analytics, and mobile apps.
If you're a security systems integrator, it's one thing to think two to three years ahead, but what about ten? What will you be selling? How will people buy your security solutions and who will control the budget? Who will be the trusted advisors? Who are your new competitors likely to be? What role will the web play? I recently had an opportunity to pose these questions to three tenured veterans of the security industry who shared their insights on this very compelling topic at ISC East. Read below to see what they have to say about the future of the security industry.
The world of public safety communications is complex and getting more complex every day, with NG9-1-1 and FirstNet right around the corner. Even today, public safety telecommunicators interact with a plethora of systems – everything from computer-aided dispatch (CAD) to computer-based telephone systems, radio systems, databases, and more. They are masters of multitasking.
Analytics - video, voice, biometrics - have matured over the years, from the Sci-Fi phase where everyone's expectations were unrealistic, to more practical, and now it seems, back to the future again. As public safety and security operations prepare for an onslaught of Big Data, analytics are taking center stage.
Mobile video is an essential tool for investigating incidents on buses -- accidents, falls, ADA complaints, bad behavior, and even crime. Like most transit operators, Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD), which operates close to 1,000 buses serving an average of 330,000 passengers a day, relies on mobile video surveillance daily.
In the last few weeks, airports around the world have been forced to take action to help safeguard against the spread of Ebola. Screening programs are being introduced to quell public concern and reduce the risk of people exhibiting symptoms from entering the country without further testing.
