Understanding Behavior and What May Happen Next

It is  good to know what is going to happen next.  Prediction though can be hard.

Metropolis Spotlight: Viisights Uses AI to Understand Behavior and Predict What Might Happen Next

By Shiri Gordon and Debraj Sinha   in NVIDIA Developer

Developers can use the new viisights wise application powered by GPU-accelerated AI technologies to help organizations and municipalities worldwide avoid operational hazards and risk in their most valuable spaces. 

With conventional imaging and analytics solutions, AI vision is used to detect the presence of people and objects and their basic attributes to better understand how a physical space is being used. For example, is there a pedestrian, cyclist, or vehicle on a roadway? While understanding what’s happening on a road or in a retail store is important, predicting what might happen next is critical to taking this vision to the next level and building even smarter spaces. 

viisights — an NVIDIA Metropolis partner — helps cities and enterprises make better decisions faster by offering an AI-enabled platform that analyzes complex behavior within video content. viisights uses the NVIDIA Deepstream SDK to accelerate their development workflow for its video analytics pipeline, cutting development time by half. DeepStream is a path to developing highly optimized video analysis pipelines including video decoding, multi-stream processing and accelerated image transformations in real-time, critical for high performance video analytics applications. For deployment, viisights uses NVIDIA TensorRT to further accelerate their application’s inference throughput at the edge with INT8 calibration. 

The viisights Wise application recognizes and classifies over 200 different types of objects and dozens of different types of actions and events. The ability to recognize that a person is running, falling, or throwing an object provides a far richer and more holistic understanding of how spaces are being used. By using viisights Wise, operations teams can gain deeper insights and identify behavioral patterns that can predict what might happen next. viisights Wise can process over 20 video streams on a single GPU in near real-time.

viisights technology protects public privacy, as it only analyzes general behavior patterns of individuals and groups and does not identify specifics like faces or license plates. Because the application only analyzes behavior patterns, viisights technology is incredibly easy to use, further increasing ROI.

Real-world situations and use cases for viisights Wise include:    ...
