The Artificial Intelligence is still in its early stages, but researchers already know that can be used to solve problems and tasks, often even better than allowing human ability. This represents a great opportunity, but also a potential danger depending on how it is developed and implemented over time.

The race for Artificial Intelligence has already begun

With the signing of the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE), in November 1990, it was possible to end one of the most impressive arms races of the modern era. With the signing of 30 nations, this treaty established limitations on NATO’s main armaments and reduced the likelihood of a surprise armed attack in Europe.

The signing of this treaty meant the end of the Cold War and the arms race between the Soviet Union and the United States that had begun with the creation of the atomic bomb by American scientists. This competition between the two nations, allied in World War II, to increase their nuclear arsenals, support opposing sides in the Korean War, develop ICBMs and strengthen their military forces had led to a conflict with great ramifications in the world. modern.

The incessant work of technologists, scientists, and military leaders to develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications confirms that we are currently living in the midst of a new arms race.

When the news that China had developed, in April 2019, a facial recognition technology to track members of the Uyghurs (a Muslim minority), the prestigious newspaper The New York Times pointed out that it was the first case of use of the Artificial Intelligence for racial profiling by a government.

According to the Times, which released the story, “the facial recognition technology that is embedded in China’s growing surveillance camera networks uniquely identifies Uyghurs and records their movements for further analysis . ” As he published, “this practice makes China a pioneer country in the application of next-generation technology to monitor its people, which could usher in a new era of automated racism.”

Although the United States is at the forefront in the development of Artificial Intelligence , everything indicates that it could soon be overtaken by China, and this generates unease, since it indicates that the technologies that will define our civil and military world for the next generations, they may not be created in accordance with the western values ​​of democracy, freedom of expression and privacy.

The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence of the United States ( NSCAI ) in its final report published in March 2021 recognized that ” Artificial Intelligence is expanding the current vulnerability of the United States” and warned that “in the next ten years, If current trends do not change, China has enough power, talent and ambition to surpass the United States as a world leader in Artificial Intelligence »and that“ for the first time since World War II, the technological dominance of the United States (the key to its economic and military power) is threatened ”.

This commission, made up of members appointed by Congress and the secretaries of Commerce and Defense, indicated that Artificial Intelligence also deepens the threat that other powers such as Russia use it to infiltrate their adversaries, steal data and weaken democracy.

“The country capable of leading the development of AI will accumulate a lead of 13 trillion dollars,” said Robert Work, vice president of the NSCAI and former undersecretary of defense, in his statement before Congress. “This technology will affect the lives of citizens and it is very important that we win this race …”.

And in business?

The history of scientific advances that have allowed humanity to progress, is full of examples such as Artificial Intelligence , investigated and developed in the first place thanks to geopolitical and military interests, but in the end, they have found their positive utility in do good for humanity. Ultimately, technology is neither good nor bad, but it is the use that we give it that will mark its goodness. In the case of the application of Artificial Intelligence in the civil world, it can make society much safer and therefore generate prosperity.

In the business world, technologies that incorporate Artificial Intelligence and video analytics to improve video surveillance systems are also of enormous importance.

Today there are advanced recording equipment that includes specific technology to obtain valuable information and be able to send it to the alert systems of companies in real time.

For example, Lanaccess ‘ advanced video surveillance systems use LAVA ANALYTICS, a technology that harnesses the full potential of video analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide the information that companies’ security systems need.

This LAVA ANALYTICS (Lanaccess Video Analytics) technology provides dedicated hardware and video algorithms based on neural networks that provide real-time information about the events being recorded by the cameras so that companies can make better decisions.

The solution includes equipment and applications for intelligent video analytics developed entirely by Lanaccess , designed to operate efficiently, safely and with high reliability.

Thanks to this technology, we can gather valuable information from the images captured by video recorders. From a web interface, the security officer can view the result of the analysis (video tagged in real time) and thus check its status.

LAVA ANALYTICS technology , exclusive to Lanaccess , is a demonstration that the use of advanced technology is key for organizations to improve their efficiency.

If you want your company to benefit from these advanced features that we offer you exclusively, you can rely on our analytics module to improve your video surveillance system.
