The power of facial recognition technology is proving divisive. The systems are already being used to improve security, identify missing people and deliver smart personalised services, but there’s genuine concern that the technology could lead to a ‘Big Brother’ surveillance society.
We’re arguably at the start of the facial recognition revolution. Greater computing power, edge processing, cloud computing and artificial intelligence are making systems ever smarter, giving them the ability to understand how people are reacting, as well as what they look like.
Gone are the days of businesses making decisions based on hunches. Instead, data is fuelling the next wave of business innovation, allowing companies to make smarter, informed decisions, often in real-time.
Edge AI can respond quickly to the input from sensors and IoT devices in practically any business, letting you make real-time, business-led decisions. Better insight, increased efficiency and reduced downtime are only some of the Edge AI benefits.
Edge Computing has the potential to be revolutionary. Moving processing and intelligence away from the cloud, and close to IoT devices, can deliver huge benefits in the way data can be acted upon, changing the way that business is done.
