I reckon the ShotSpotter gunshot detection system is a huge waste of money. TTAG’s resident war hero Jon Wayne Taylor agrees — having seen the system’s lack of value in Afghanistan. Jeremy disagrees. No matter how you slice it, the audio-based system could soon be obsolete.
Researchers at the University of Granada (UGR) have designed a computer algorithm that can identify guns on video in real time.
The researchers trained the artificial intelligence on low-quality videos from YouTube and movies from the 90s, such as Pulp Fiction, Mission Impossible and James Bond.
The algorithm showed an effectiveness of over 96.5%, detecting guns with high precision by analyzing 5 frames per second, or in real time.
When a handgun appears in the image, the system sends an alert in the form of a red box on the screen where the gun is located.
UGR professor Francisco Herrera says the artificial intelligence…post was originally published on this site
