June 2019 / / Security Business 21 “Deep learning AI is ready for adoption in our industry, but we need to first understand how artificial intelligence works, address privacy concerns, and how to implement it to solve specific safety, security or business risks,” Gurulé says. “We also need to make sure we choose leading companies that truly understand AI and how to operationalize it to get the desired outcomes. Further, we must distinguish between real-time and recording/analytics technologies. is a real-time technology, others are ‘post-event’ search engines for recorded video with limited intelligence and offering limited utility in a narrower scope.” As security practitioners, it is incumbent upon us to work with clients to define practical use cases and build AI solutions around them. “The more we learn about artificial intelligence and its application in safety and security, we quickly identify a wide range of use cases,” Gurulé says. “The challenge is prioritizing all the potential uses cases for actual deployment. At its most fundamental level, threat detection and response can be achieved with the use of artificial intelligence-powered tools saving real human labor while improving and normalizing outcomes on a vast scale. “The key is to choose an AI technology that is built by a qualified team,” he adds. “I would also choose a platform that can offer a foundational technology that can leverage your company’s data or knowledge for the long-term. Also, target specific use-cases that, when implemented, can be replicated easily within both security and business contexts.” In terms of challenges, Gurulé says that “the processing power for data – such as video – will struggle with cloud-based models, as they will need the on-premises hardware to perform artificial intelligence in real time. For now, this will not be an issue for security, as the on-premises model is still preferred to address privacy and data governance.” Another impediment to the adoption of AI technologies will be social and governmental acceptance. “As security practitioners, we should design and promote a responsible use and applications of artificial intelligence and understand that AI will not eliminate the need for human cognition and contextualization of events, data and information,” Gurulé says. ■ » Brian Coulombe is Principal and Director of Operations at DVS, a division of Ross & Baruzzini.
