A few weeks ago, our team attended one of the largest annual security events in the North America: ISC West in Las Vegas.
In 2017, security robotics was a pre-mature, yet emerging, trend in the security space. Over the past couple of years, things have started to change.
Artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, and deep learning. They all seem to be used interchangeably. But are they really the same?
In this rapidly changing, technology-driven world, security is a big factor to your business' success.
According to a recent study, that's how many workers could be displaced by 2030 thanks to automation and artificial intelligence. These stats can be scary, and they tend to flare up heated debates around technology and its role in our work force.
For most of us, Hollywood has painted an elaborate picture around the world of robotics and artificial intelligence. Images of dystopian societies, robo-villains, and Arnold Schwarzenegger's classic line "Hasta la vista, baby!" probably come to mind.
Veni, vidi, vici
The Turing team enjoyed everything ISC East 2018 had to offer: an amazing group of exhibitors and attendees, over 40 educational sessions during the show, the newly renovated Javits Center as our venue, and evening explorations in the city that never sleeps.
Why the hype?
"If you aren't using automation, you're working too hard."
In past blog posts, we've discussed some of the big questions around automation and autonomous security. In the past decade, billions of dollars have been invested in security automation; from video analytics and robots to smart buildings. Scholars and engineers have said automation marks the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution.
Big technology, big questions
Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem, and a big idea turn into an innovation. - Dean Kamen
Within the last five years, commercialized security robots have come on the scene with full force. Similarly to other recent automation technology (see our last blog post), these innovations raised some big questions:
