    This is my last news report for tonight - it's late and I'm tired

    AI camera can spot guns and alert law enforcement

    The company says it’s accurate 99 percent of the time[​IMG]

    Athena Security has developed a camera system that uses artificial intelligence and cloud technology to spot guns and alert authorities. The company says that because the system can recognize weapons and notify police quickly, casualties may be prevented in places where the system is implemented, such as schools or businesses. It has already been installed in Archbishop Wood High School in Warminster, Pennsylvania.

    Once the system spots a gun in the vicinity, it uses the cloud to send that information to those that need it, whether that be a business owner or law enforcement. It can also stream footage of the event in question through an app, giving police a real-time look at what's going on and where. Users also have the option of connecting the camera to other third-party security systems, allowing it lock doors or stop elevators.

    False positives can be a problem for computer vision systems, and that would be particularly troublesome for a security camera that has the ability to alert police directly. But the company claims its system's gun detection is 99 percent accurate. "We've basically perfected that," co-founder Lisa Falzone told Fortune, "and so we're already starting to work on fights, knives and other crimes. We expect fights to be done in the next couple months, at least the first version of it."

    Back in 2015, a company called NanoWatt Design tried to crowdfund its GunDetect camera, which used computer vision to detect firearms and text alerts to its users. It now says its security systems can be customized to detect specific threats, including guns.

    Athena offers multiple systems at a range of prices, but the one that includes gun detection, lock and elevator integration and real-time access costs $100 per camera per month.

    Great.... The police already are overworked, now they are going to be chasing non calls from AI cameras.

    It’s legal and none of their business. What’s next? Are they going to try to see who has Chap Stick? Also legal and common.

    There is no way I believe 99% accuracy with really small pistols.

    I agree. If you are doing it right even a live person can’t tell for sure.

    Yeah, . . . and the first time a business owner approaches me about my concealed gun because of that system will be the last time I spend a nickel in that business. Just because I walk into someone's business doesn't mean they have a right to know what's inside my clothes.

    As for locking doors and elevators . . . great. Now I can look forward to being falsely imprisoned by freakin' Skynet for carrying a pistol. . . .

    If I knew the system was in operation, I might just wear say, my big cell phone AIWB and when the PD comes to arrest/detain me for no VALID reason, contemplate suing the company and the business. Sometimes the only way these enterprises learn is to deplete their pocketbooks.

    Exactly how large is this system? It must use massive amounts of energy so it may not be portable. Does it scan crowds or is the operator scanning individuals! If individuals it could be discrimination! If the system is so good why doesn’t the Secret Service use it at rally’s?

    Does anyone bother to actually read or watch stuff? Has nothing to do with CCW. The gun has to be visible.

    Thermos carry would prevent this.

    Open carry would be an interesting question though. Surely their system filters that out and only triggers if the gun is held. One would hope. What if uniformed cops come in?

    I guess this system would't be of much use in say, a gun shop :)
