6D-intelligent Visual Analytics™ ('6D-iVA™)

 6D-iVA™ provides comprehensive solutions to challenging operational and environmental challenges based upon intelligent visual analytics and cognitive automation.  Visual analytics enable programmatic interpretation of what is in the camera's field of view.  There are three layers of analytics that are applied to video streams in order to translate the video and meta-data such into actionable intelligence.  In layers two and three, the frame by frame video analytics generate metadata that is fused together with other information data sets to contextualize and comprehend what the information means and what insights can be derived.  The insights then drive the automation that is appropriate.

6D visual analytics like no other!

Good visual analytics are hard to find.  We tried to license four different visual analytics platforms but none of them met our expectations of providing highly accurate and reliable visual analytics.  Six years ago, we were introduced to a visual analytics engineer that had the right stuff!  As a result, over the past six years, we have been building our Fusion™ visual analytics platform.   We differentiate our visual analytics using our cognitive and data analytics.   Anybody can train a Convolution Neural Network to recognize pictures.  What differentiates us though is our ability to interpret behavior, predict trajectory, track objects, analyze the scene, understand unique characteristics to ID and Re-ID objects, and deliver precise and accurate results.

Visual analytics are best represented as being composed of 10-30% visual analytics and 70-90% data analytics that work in a collaborative manner.  Building and training the detector to recognize the picture is 10% of the work.  Finding objects, separating them from the background, understanding the scene, and identifying the behaviors and movement of objects is where we drive innovations and create value.

Video analytics must be contextualized and integrated within your business and operational processes!  

There are considerable business and operational process details and analytics that must be understood and used to complement video analytics in order to translate the video analytics metadata into useful real-time or forensic information and insights.

Video analytics metadata from one or more cameras and multiple other IoT technologies are contextualized and fused together with data from other operational systems.  This allows 6D-iVA to integrate real-time situational awareness associated with video analytics into your business processes and workflows.

 Central Security Operations Centers are labor intensive and typically are used for forensic analysis.  Catching inappropriate behavior, identifying or re-identifying people of interest, or not seeing intrusions using streaming video typically doesn't happen due to human attention spans and distractions.

In contrast, intelligent video analytics provide a digital set of eyes that can watch every video stream 24x7x365 and capture real-time behavior, people, and intrusions that deserve immediate attention.

Operational Use of Visual Analytics

Applying visual analytics to operational use cases such as tracking objects, equipment, and people in a distribution or logistics center requires a much more capable visual and data analytics system solution.  6D provides these capabilities and more.  We apply innovative visual and analytics to find, identify, track, project, and predict movement and behavior in order to provide highly precise and accurate data and results that are acted upon by 6D™ in real-time.

Deploy Video Analytics on the Edge, Data Center, or Cloud

6D-iVA may be deployed on anywhere in the network that is appropriate.  They may be deployed on edge devices that are placed near the cameras or back in the data center or cloud where video can be streamed or retrieved.  Level 1 video analytics are complemented by Level 2 and Level 3 analytics where the meta-data from Level 1 video analytics is fused together with other meta-data and sensor information as well as contextualized from a business process and workflow automation point of view.

What Will Intelligent Video Analytics Do For You?

Today’s customer is demanding real-time situational awareness, analytics, and business intelligence.  As a result, medium to large scale deployments of IoT technologies are being rolled out by organizations worldwide for a broad variety of use case scenarios.  Intelligent video analytics is an IoT technology.
Historically, CCTV type video surveillance has provided organizations with remote visibility.  However, the practical realities of CCTV is that it is primarily used for forensic analysis and not pro-active loss prevention; increased safety and security; operational analytics; and business process automation.  In fact, we suggest that 99% of all video captured as a result of the use of video surveillance is useless noise.  In addition, research has proven that users of video surveillance systems typically cannot see what is happening when viewing video after the first few minutes as the user essentially cannot focus and maintain an attention span for any length of time in order to see what the video is presenting to the user.  Users experience information overload in typical 8, 16, or 32 “up” thumbnails on each screen that is part of the typical video wall.

The latest advances in artificial intelligence, machine vision, deep learning, neural networks, and more enable VI Agents 6D-iVA™ to apply our Fusion visual analytics that create a set of digital eyes that can see and interpret the full field of view of each camera.  The video interpretation is based upon a combination of visual analytics algorithms, scene learnings, behavioral analytics, movement analytics, machine intelligence / deep learnings, and more.

 What Type of Video Analytics Can Be Used?

 The following visual analytics use cases may be applied:

  • Classifying objects
  • Identifying objects
  • Interpreting the behavior and gestures of people seen by the video camera
    • Dwell time
    • Fights and other threats
    • Suspicious behavior
    • Expressions of fear
  • Perimeter and area Security
  • Intrusion detection and unauthorized presence
  • Identifying people using facial recognition
  • Identifying objects left behind or added to a scene
  • Counting people or objects
  • Detecting traffic congestion
  • Detecting road conditions
  • Detecting environmental factors
  • Tracking objects
  • And more….,
Multiple data streams of video analytics meta-data events may be fused together to provide a comprehensive video-based situational awareness.  The visual analytics meta-data may also be fused with other sensor events generated by M2M / IoT technologies.  Together the video analytics and M2M / IoT provide an even more comprehensive understanding of the situation providing dual confirmation using multiple technologies.
