Does AI have a role in securing your premises?

Economies the world over are turning into digital economies and companies are being forced to follow suit. Customer preferences, worker behavior, and government rules and regulations are being moulded around digitization. This is forcing the most traditional enterprises – manufacturing companies and industrial units to alter their modes of working too. The digitization of manufacturing and industrial organizations is bringing in profound changes already. Technology is bringing in automation into the manufacturing process. The supply chain is being digitized. The sales process is rapidly adopting eCommerce channels. But this blog is about what starts outside the gates. This is about how a transformation could be waiting in the wings when it comes to the security of the business unit. The digital revolution paved the way for one of the most significant breakthroughs of this century – Artificial Intelligence. For the uninitiated, or the merely curious, Artificial intelligence (AI) has been defined as, “..the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. These processes include learning (the acquisition of information and rules for using the information), reasoning (using rules to reach approximate or definite conclusions) and self-correction.” Today, more organisations are becoming familiar with and inculcating artificial intelligence as a part of their digital transformation process. Organisations planning to expand digitally cannot ignore the importance and potential benefits of implementing artificial intelligence in their day to day operations. Small and large organizations around the world have incorporated artificial intelligence into their core activities. But what role does it have to play in security?

Role of Artificial Intelligence in Security Industry

The advent of artificial intelligence has the potential to change the way the security department operates. In fact, some say that security could be the biggest use-case of Artificial Intelligence within the enterprise. The advancements in chip architectures and technologies like facial recognition have already started enhancing the safety and security of employees and residents in buildings and businesses. The limitations of the traditional surveillance systems are being met through the use of AI- driven security systems. These systems have taken surveillance beyond the mere installation of CCTV cameras -a clunky and effort-intensive method in the security landscape. Here is how AI can be far more effective than traditional security for ensuring the safety and security of your campus or premises:

  1. Efficient Management of Voluminous Video Data
  2. Customization of Security System
  3. Improved Visitor Experience
  4. Analytics
  5. Maintaining Staff Attendance Log

AI is making a mark everywhere and AI-driven security is likely to become widespread faster than you may imagine. It’s possible that the day is not far when every campus you visit will have an AI-supported security system that provides an incredible visitor experience and great security.
