The collaboration will promote technological development in the field of intelligent video surveillance On the morning of 9th January, 2017, Dahua announced the cooperation with Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) in building a Joint Laboratory of Intelligent Video Systems Engineering. Both parties will contribute their technological and business resources respectively, to drive technological innovation of intelligent video content in the civilian security field. The Executive Dean of the School of Computer Science at BUPT, Mr. Ma Huadong, and Mr. Yang Yinchang, General Manager of the Dahua R&D Centre, attended the ceremony and signed the agreement. Advanced video surveillance solutions BUPT is one of China’s foremost universities, and is well-regarded in scientific research and technology development. Key research areas include communication software, multimedia technology, Internet of Things, information security, artificial intelligence, and data mining. Being a provider of advanced video surveillance solutions, Dahua has made significant contributions in the advanced video surveillance field. In the last year, Dahua served in the Rio Olympic Games, G20 Summit, as well as other considerable domestic and international security projects. With Dahua and BUPT agreeing to commit to an initial three-year term, the joint laboratory will be focusing on talent development, apprenticeship, academic exchange, overcoming key technological barriers, and development of industry standards. Dahua will fund the research activities of the joint laboratory. Research results will be shared by Dahua and BUPT. Intelligent video system In 2017, Dahua is committed to the promotion of scientific competition, scholarships, talent introductions, and other forms of cooperation. "The BUPT laboratory is the first joint laboratory Dahua has set up cooperating with other organisations" Elaborating on the cooperation, Yang Yinchang stated: “Dahua is an application-oriented enterprise. The BUPT laboratory is the first joint laboratory Dahua has set up cooperating with other organisations. Our hope is that with the advantages of academic resources and theoretical research in BUPT, we can promote the technical research of the intelligent video joint laboratory by striving to create the autonomously developed intelligent video system technology solutions. We also see training highly-skilled individuals in intelligent video system research and operation to be of great importance as this will make the joint lab a benchmark for school−enterprise cooperation in the future." Promoting safety and security The school−enterprise cooperation provides significant benefits to both Dahua and BUPT. It offers a more effective way to promote technological development in the field of intelligent video surveillance. The security industry is upgrading to a new era of video+. Based on video-centric IoT information service, the era of video+ features multi-dimensional senses and applications. Dahua believes that the school−enterprise cooperation with BUPT will enable Dahua to achieve better performance in the video+ era, and so provide its customers with more advanced products, and services of better quality. With ongoing commitment to promoting safety and security, Dahua will continue to invest in innovation, contribute to the development of the security industry, as well as continue to enhance safety for the betterment of society.
With the improving performance of Big Data, Deep Learning, GPU chipset and server, AI is gaining momentum in global security industry On the afternoon of March 7th, 2017, “Deep Insight· Deep Cooperation” – Dahua Smart GPU Product Release Conference was held in Hangzhou. Together with NVIDIA, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) computing company, Dahua released “Deep Sense” server for smart video structure analysis with extremely high computing capability. Mr. Yang Yinchang, General Manager of Dahua R&D Centre, Dr. Pan Shizhu, President of Dahua Institute of Advanced Technology, as well as Mr. Shen Wei, VP of NVIDIA participated in the new product release conference. “Deep Sense” product release conference With the improving performance of Big Data, Deep Learning, GPU chipset and server, AI is gaining momentum in global security industry. Based upon our insight on the market trend, and in response to customer demand, Dahua initiates cooperation with other companies in the industrial value chain to focus on enhancing video processing capabilities and creating a new world of AI together. During the conference, Dr. Pan Shizhu presented the new product, “Deep Sense” series. As a blockbuster from the powerful combination of Dahua and NVIDIA, “Deep Sense” server, equipped with NVIDIA Tesla P4 GPUs, supports structure analysis of up to 192channels of video. It delivers up to 50 times stronger video processing capability comparing with alternations in the market Tesla P4 GPUs, specially developed for deep learning computing, will take the deep-learning-based application in the security industry to a new height. Dr. Pan believes that the release of “Deep Sense” will largely improve the utilisation and application value of security video Big Data. Dahua “Deep Sense” series is the first server product in the global smart video analysis industry to deploy Tesla P4 GPU Enhanced speed and accuracy “Deep Sense”, with extraordinary processing capability, enables further advancement in video structured analysis, resulting in faster speed and better accuracy. In his speech about , Dr. Pan said that, the development of smart city relies largely on new technologies like Big Data, High Performance Computer and AI. Equipped with NVIDIA Tesla P4 GPUs, “Deep Sense” is able to perform deduction services for AI applications to support deep learning with more layers and smarter data collision analysis, offering more possibilities to implement new AI application in the global security industry. Mr. Shen Wei, VP of NVIDIA, said that NVIDIA owns a comprehensive end-to-end leaning platform from training to deduction, offers mighty support of AI computing to global security industry. Dahua “Deep Sense” series is the first server product in the global smart video analysis industry to deploy Tesla P4 GPU. With Dahua’s expertise in fields like smart city and AI, and the powerful performance of NVIDIA deep learning platform, the mass deployment of Tesla P4 in Dahua products will definitely bring innovative intelligent video services to a broad user base in the global security industry. Leveraging on its core strength in technical innovation, Dahua is making rapid progress in the fields of video big data and cloud computing. Vehicle big data, face recognition big data and visual extraction deployment have been very mature and reliable. The release of “Deep Sense” showcased further improvement of Dahua Smart Family Portfolio. Classification of video objects into human, vehicle and things, as well as the extraction of details and features will be more systematic, allowing video application to better met business needs and the demanding requirement of real life use in the global security industry.
