Verint® Systems Inc., based in Melville, announced this week that it was named the recipient of multiple technology awards for its new Verint FaceDetect™ solution last month. This award recognition highlights the benefits that Verint’s face recognition technology brings to government and private sector entities through algorithms that help organizations protect people and property.
The Verint FaceDetect analytics solution was named a gold-level winner in video analytics in the 2018 Government Security Awards from Security Today, an industry-leading security news platform for security dealers, integrators and end-users focused on innovation and problem-solving solutions. The tech also received an honorable mention in the video analytics category of Security Industry Association’s New Product Showcase, which recognizes innovative products, services and solutions in electronic physical security that protect life and property in residential, commercial and institutional settings.
Verint FaceDetect was selected for these honors for its ability to leverage artificial intelligence to imitate a human’s ability to recognize persons of interest. This approach allows the technology to adapt to and learn from new scenarios, similar to how the human brain processes information. Based on a GPU-based system designed to achieve optimum performance, accuracy and scalability, it addresses the growing need for advanced facial recognition in real-world environments where heavily populated and diverse subject matter are the norm.
“With Verint FaceDetect, organizations can streamline investigations and empower operators to make rapid, informed decisions without expensive infrastructure changes. These facets, coupled with the solution’s accuracy and unique ability to perform in real-world environments, mark just a few of the reasons it was selected for these exciting honors,” said Verint’s Alan Stoddard, vice president and general manager, situational intelligence solutions.
