20 Security Business / / February 2019 SECURITY WATCH Event Report dynamic range for visual acuity. The new breed of AI chipsets have gifted us a new method. It is up to the systems integrators and end-users to specify processors like Ambarella and that the camera OEM makes full use of the CV25’s feature set. Watch my video of the Ambarella demos at – at around the 4:30 mark, you will see another visual CV25 demo that looked like a thermal infrared camera rendering of the three of us in front of the display – it was actually a 3D image extracted from a stereo camera that was color-coded by distance. You could actually see the contour of an object I had in my jacket vest pocket; thus, it is not hard to imagine this as a cost-effective scecurity screening alternative for events or schools. The visual presentation required some software to render the graphic elements, including object classifications – all made available through open source. To set realistic expectations, the systems integrator and end-user need to balance their software and integration needs. Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sample process: On opening night, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang explained how most computer graphics use a process of rasterization – whereby objects are rendered a bit unnaturally as collections of triangles, which fails to accurately produce complex nuances of light and shadow. Enter Nvidia’s new “deep learning super sample” (DLSS) process, where difficult scenes having nuances of shadows, reflections on glass and in water and many shadows are now accurately generated. This opens object recognition to once limited areas of object, traffic and facial recognition for the security industry; in fact, investment bank UBS reports the demand for mass facial recognition and traffic monitoring could be worth up to $5 billion in additional sales for Nvidia by 2020.
