Hikvision

Hikvision’s ‘AI Cloud’ establishes a distributed structure incorporating Cloud Computing and Edge Computing. It extends the Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm from the cloud, to an edge network of on-premises video recorders and servers, and further to edge devices like the security cameras. The three-layer architecture all supports the goal to build a new class of AI-powered application, being even smarter and faster.

Hikvision successfully held an Artificial Intelligence forum in Shenzhen, China on October 28, one day before the CPSE trade show kicked off (Oct. 29th – Nov. 1st). The forum had the theme of “AI, beyond innovation” in keeping with the company’s continued commitment to technology advancement. Accordingly, Hikvision introduced AI Cloud, the next level of AI technology development, and its comprehensive implementation in a variety of vertical applications.

Hikvision AI Cloud

Cloud computing is an information technology (IT) paradigm. It allows users with various computing capabilities to store and process data either in a privately-owned cloud or on a third-party server located in a data centre. However, with the computing business becoming more and more versatile and complicated, the demand for data processing performance is even higher. In the process of data transition to the cloud, cloud computing consumes tremendous network resources and time, which all result in network congestion and low reliability.

Mr. Hu Yangzhong, CEO of Hikvision who addressed the forum, pointed out the irresistible trend of engineering AI algorithms into edge devices, and making the edge more intelligent. The Hikvision “AI Cloud” structure was then introduced, which enables AI algorithm from edge to cloud, distributing the overall pressure that the large amount of data places on the centre.

world challenges existing
in different vertical markets

“Edge computing uses local computing to enable analytics at the source of the data. Powered by AI technology, it strengthens the sensing capability of front-end cameras, and helps us understand the captured scene more effectively and accurately.

With AI algorithms woven into the edge devices, only selected information such as an individual or a vehicle in a video image will be extracted and sent which significantly enhances the transition efficiency and reduces the network bandwidth, while still sustaining high quality and accuracy. Edge computing will also accelerate more efficient business responses, creating immediate action and event alerts.” Hu commented.

Real world challenges

Hikvision AI Cloud was developed to solve real world challenges existing in different vertical markets, and to create continuous value to end users.

Artificial Intelligence is the most trending technology in the security industry. Hikvision has gained over a decade of experience in this field. The company has invested in video intelligence technology since 2006, when its first algorithm team was established. In 2013, the company started to implement Deep Learning technology, and in 2016, its full range Deep Learning products were introduced to the security industry.

Hikvision has taken this technology and innovated a family of products to maximise its use. The DeepinView IP camera range and the DeepinMind NVR range work together to provide all the power and benefits of Deep Learning. While the cameras provide the smart ‘eyes’ of the system, the NVR represents the analytic and storage capabilities of the brain. The products help to tackle security on two fronts – recognition, monitoring and counting of people and recognition and detection of vehicles. They use Deep Learning technology at its most effective – for its ability to classify and recognise thousands of ‘features’.

Maximising effectiveness of thermal cameras for temperature screening

Thermal cameras can be used for rapid and safe initial temperature screening of staff, visitors and customers. Used the right way, the cameras can help prevent unnecessary spread of viruses like the novel coronavirus. During the global pandemic, use of thermal cameras has increased, but they have not always been used correctly, and therefore, not effectively. Hikvision’s temperature screening thermal products are currently assisting users in initial temperature screening across the global...

Hikvision AcuSense Technology responds effectively to human and vehicle intrusion events

A feeling of security is a universal human need. And beyond physical, bodily security, people need to know that their environment, investments, and belongings are safe as well.
