Artificial intelligence uses existing security cameras to detects guns


I tell you it’s been almost a year now since the parklands school shooting left its indelible mark on all of us here in South Florida to this day we still ask what could have been done to stop the horrible outcome but now local 10 investigative reporter Amy Viteri shows us a new security system which claims to be able to detect firearms before they’re even brought on the campus of your child’s school oh my god my heart drops I heard shots we ran outside we didn’t think 17 people killed 17 lives lost when a gunman entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas almost a year ago and opened fire but what if it could have been stopped before it even began this is Athena I see you have a gun please stop committing a criminal offense it’s called Athena a new security technology system that uses artificial intelligence to detect guns with up to 99 percent accuracy meaning it can spot those with weapons or those making threatening motions before they enter schools or businesses our goal is out just to go out there and help save lives whether it’s in a school it’s in a business it’s time for this kind of stuff to stop because there’s no reason for it to be happening Athena’s chief technological officer and co-inventor christy abara said the vision for Athena came out of the same anguish we all feel seeing another mass shooting in the news let’s go ahead and fix this problem watching on TV all the time all these school shootings are happening people are dying it’s just ridiculous why this is happening in our country and we want to put a stop to it what makes Athena so accessible to schools and businesses is that the system connects directly to security cameras that are already in place bypassing any heavier costly installation in case of trouble the system then instantly relays information and can directly alert police the technology will also send real-time footage of an incident to law enforcement allowing them to know the current situation before they even arrive on the scene so far Athena is already in use at this Pennsylvania High School with officials there saying it offers peace of mind we have a duty and responsibility to keep our students safe with 246 mass shootings in 2018 alone Athena security has calmed parents fears substantially and SIA Barra says police departments around the country have shown interest in the security system good really good feedback they think it’s a great system so yeah I mean I’ve every one needs it while Athena promises that its algorithms will keep prices down the main hold up could be that the system cannot currently distinguish between a real gun and a fake possibly causing unneeded alarms is that a criminal understands how the technology works and they paint their gun make it look like a fake gun guess what it’s gonna get by right so we rather have extra and more alerts and actually alert under the fake ones so nothing slips by Amy Viteri local 10 News and Athena says several schools businesses and even police departments have been in contact with the security company about this new system and possibly implementing it in the near future
