The number of CCTV and surveillance cameras are increasing exponentially around the world for surveillance and security purposes – yet many of these cameras have not even been leveraged to their full capacity or potential.


However, this trend is also raising concerns among citizens who feel that their privacy is being affected, not respected, and sometimes utilized in unknown or harmful ways.


Countries with the Highest CCTV Count

Some countries invest highly in their national security and surveillance Departments.

Here is a list of the top countries with the highest number of CCTV systems and security cameras installed in the world:

China – 200 million CCTV cameras

United States – 50 million CCTV cameras

United Kingdom – 5 million CCTV cameras

Japan – close to 5 million CCTV cameras

Vietnam – 2.6 million CCTV cameras

France – 1.65 million CCTV cameras

South Korea – 1.03 million CCTV cameras

The Netherlands – 1 million CCTV cameras.

But Are CCTVs really helping?

Statistics have shown that – less than 1 per cent of all surveillance videos today are watched live and when humans are in charge of monitoring the video feeds, key events are often overlooked or missed. Coupled with the fact that human supervision or monitoring can’t always be active or uninterrupted or reliable for even 24 hours.

Humans have limited attention spans and suffer from fatigue and distractions, especially when staring at bright screens for long periods of time.



Although It's fine when someone wants to see what happened at some point earlier and timeliness is not a factor, in critical situations such as a fire outbreak or theft, or an active shooter incident, it is completely unacceptable and unhelpful. In such cases or incidents, seeing what happened already can’t do anything to help protect people and properties during an incident or event.



With forest fires, burning buildings and properties, intruders, theft, accidents, domestic violence, child molestations, vehicle accidents, emergencies, assassinations, mass shootings, and other dangerous situations on the rise, these ubiquitous security cameras need not just record video footage or be monitored unreliably or inconsistently by a human agent or security personnel.

They should instead be connected to intelligent and proactive platforms/systems like RetinaX AI which is an AI-powered software solution specialized for real-time surveillance video analytics.


Our system has the ability to instantly send out activity and situational intelligence, alerts, and trigger automated responses like locking doors, notifying police, setting off alarms, calling fire service departments, calling animal rescue, and much more.

RetinaX AI can significantly improve the positive and safe outcome of an event, making a huge impact and a big difference in preventing and averting some of these unwanted events or situations.


Our proprietary AI-powered software technology is designed to optimize and upgrade your existing security camera system or CCTV infrastructure or hardware to become truly smart and proactive. RetinaX democratizes the high cost of smart security systems and eliminates the need for purchasing or installing any extra hardware or software for this purpose.


AI and Computer Vision to the Rescue: Solving safety and security with RetinaX AI

The application of AI and computer vision video in monitoring, tracking, and surveillance is an area that is rapidly evolving. With the advent of new AI algorithms, models, hardware, and cloud computing technologies, the capa


bilities of AI and computer vision technologies are increasing at an exponential rate and are also becoming more sophisticated and affordable too.



These recent advancements enable any individual or business to transform (by integrating with AI-powered surveillance software like Retinax Systems) their existing security cameras(IP-based) into smart proactive security camera systems that can detect, alert, and respond to threats or dangers in real-time, thereby protecting people, properties and preventing incidents.



Leveraging these advances also helps to extend the benefit of the already existing infrastructural investment often at marginal cost.

Some of the most promising applications for computer vision and AI in monitoring, tracking, and surveillance include:


1. Automated License Plate Recognition: Automated license plate recognition (ALPR) is a technology that uses computer vision and AI to automatically read and identify license plates. This information can then be used for a variety of purposes, such as tracking the movement of specific vehicles or identifying stolen vehicles.



2. Facial Recognition: Facial recognition is a technology that uses computer vision and AI to identify individuals by their facial features. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as identifying criminals or tracking the movement of certain individuals.



3. Object Recognition: Object recognition is a technology that uses computer vision and AI to identify objects in images or videos. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as identifying a specific type of object, such as a vehicle, or tracking the movement of objects.



4. Activity Recognition: Activity recognition is a technology that uses computer vision and AI to identify and classify activities in images and videos. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as identifying suspicious activities or behavior and tracking the movement, posture, and activities of people and objects, such as loitering in a restricted area or attempting to break into a building.


5. Pattern Recognition: Pattern recognition is a technology that uses computer vision and AI to identify patterns in data. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as identifying trends or detecting anomalies.



6. Predictive Analytics: Predictive analytics is a technology that uses computer vision and AI to make predictions about future events or trends in data. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as identifying potential threats or opportunities. This information can also be used to alert security personnel or take other appropriate action.


7. Surveillance: Surveillance is the monitoring of activities for the purpose of security, investigation, or information gathering. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as identifying potential threats or monitoring a crowded area for potential security threats, or tracking the movement of people and objects.


8. Tracking: Tracking is the monitoring of the movement of people, animals, or objects. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as monitoring traffic or tracking the movement of vehicles, or investigating hit-and-run accidents.


9. Big Data Analytics: Big data analytics is the process of analyzing large data sets to extract valuable information. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as training AI and machine learning models, identifying trends, or detecting anomalies.


Advantages and Rapid Adoption.

The use of AI and computer vision in public surveillance is becoming increasingly prevalent, as these technologies offer a number of advantages over traditional methods.


As the technology becomes more sophisticated and affordable, it is likely that we will see even more widespread use of computer vision in surveillance in the future.


For example, advanced computer vision systems like RetinaX can be used to automatically analyze video footage from surveillance cameras to detect and track people or objects of interest, identify patterns or unusual behavior, and can also be configured to act and respond in real-time or instantly to potential threats.


There are a number of benefits to using AI and computer vision in private and public surveillance systems.


Firstly, these technologies can help to reduce the burden on human operators, who would otherwise need to manually monitor video feeds around the clock.


Secondly, they can provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of what is happening in an area, as they are not subject to the same limitations as human observers.


Finally, they can also help to improve the efficiency of surveillance operations, as they can be used to automatically target, respond and track potential threats.


Drawbacks, Challenges, and Privacy Concerns

However, there are also some potential drawbacks to using these technologies.

For example, they can be expensive to implement, integrate, deploy and maintain.

Furthermore, there is also a risk that they could be used to violate the privacy of individuals if they are not properly used.


Conclusion

Overall, the use of AI and computer vision in public or private surveillance can offer a number of benefits, but it is also important to weigh up the pros and cons before deciding whether or not to deploy and use these sorts of technologies. If these systems or technologies end up being deployed then they should respect the privacy rules and regulations of their geolocation and also be routinely overhauled for bias, false detections, and wrong predictions and also have rigorous error analysis and accuracy checks done. They should also be continuously iterated with new ideas or advancements and retrained with more data and feedback to improve their overall accuracy and performance.
