NEW YORK – It’s just a simulation, but it feels real, as the employee carrying out the demonstration inside Actuate offices in Midtown Manhattan walks in carrying a mock AR-15 rifle.
In a matter of seconds, after the employee is visible in the office space, a surveillance camera in the room goes into action.
A green flash pulsates across the monitor set up in another corner of the room after the video management system recognizes a potential threat in the room.
“As you can see it’s pulsing green within about a second or two. That means an alert has been registered,” says Actuate CEO and co-Founder Sonny Tai. “Our AI model has made a detection and sent an alert to video management systems.”
