ChatGPT for the Video Security Industry

In the rapidly evolving landscape of the connected world, businesses are constantly seeking innovative solutions that improve productivity and optimize user experiences.
Artificial intelligence has already made waves in video surveillance and with technology continuously progressing is set to redefine the future of video surveillance.In this article,
we will look into the potential applications and benefits of ChatGPT-4 in the realm of video surveillance.

For years, Computer Vision  (CV) and Deep Learning (DL)  technologies have been the linchpins of AI in the video security domain. These breakthroughs paved the way for object detection, facial recognition, false alarm filtering, number plate recognition, and countless other products. By leveraging AI, traditional surveillance companies have reduced their reliance on human operators without compromising on security. What was once labor-intensive and prone to error has now been streamlined into an efficient and reliable process. The introduction of AI-driven systems based on Large Language Models (LLM) and its most notable representative, ChatGPT promises to start a new era of innovation.

What is LLM and is ChatGPT the only name in town?

With much buzz surrounding ChatGPT, it's essential to understand its capabilities and implications for the video security industry. LLMs are advanced machine learning models, specifically designed to understand, analyze, and generate human-like text. They can understand the nuances of languages and context, generate text and images, sound, and videos. One of the most popular LLM is GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer). Created by OpenAI, GPT-4 is the fourth iteration of this model that was designed to engage users in conversation and provide detailed responses based on text prompts.

However, ChatGPT is not the sole contender in this arena.
There are other large language models, such as Google's  PaLM-2, Meta’s LLaMA, Stanford’s Alpaca, and many more. These large language models are part of the rapidly growing field, were numerous companies and organizations developing their own models to tackle various language-related tasks. Stay tuned for our upcoming articles where we will explore and compare these models in detail.

How ChatGPT and other LLMs can help in Video Surveillance

The integration of LLMs into video surveillance systems offers numerous benefits, by automating labor-intensive tasks that were previously beyond the scope of Computer Vision. Here are just a few examples:

Video Summarization:

With ChatGPT, businesses can streamline their forensic video analysis by generating a concise summary, combining all finding into a single, easy-to-review text report. This report can be effortlessly stored, searched, or shared. Original videos remain accessible as source links, ensuring complacency and safeguarding the integrity of the investigative process.

Intelligent Alerts:

Utilizing its advanced language understanding capabilities, ChatGPT can parse complex security alerts and automatically generate intelligible incident reports. This helps security teams make informed, data-driven decisions and facilitates quick response times to potential threats.

Contextual Analysis:

ChatGPT can analyze the contextual information surrounding video content, offering insights into the environment, objects, and activities depicted in the footage.

Ease of use:

The LLM can seamlessly integrate with the company's access control management system, facilitating swift responses to a diverse range of inquiries related to physical access. visitor management, door reader analytics, and safety reporting. 

Here are some examples of the queries users can pose:
"What is the current number of individuals present in the office?"
"What is the total count of employees and visitors currently inside the shopping area"
"How many new employee badges were issued last month?"
"Display the list of cars that entered the parking lot last night."
These are just a few sample queries that highlight the versatility and capabilities of such AI system.

Addressing the Challenges of ChatGPT in Video Security

While ChatGPT and other LLMs hold significant promise, deploying these technologies comes with inherent challenges and risks. One notable limitation is that LLMs do not directly handle video feeds on their own. As with any Natural Language Processing model(NLP), LLM relies on textual inputs. Therefore, leveraging videos requires the integration of a Computer Vision algorithm, such as the one developed by Traces AI. By combining the capabilities of ChatGPT and Traces AI's Computer Vision API, you can effectively communicate and extract valuable insights from video data.

Another big challenge is "hallucination", a phenomenon where the language model produces plausible-sounding but incorrect or nonsensical information. This poses a considerable obstacle when businesses' success relies on accurate and reliable information. Addressing and minimizing hallucinations is a crucial area of focus for AI professionals. We continually refine models, incorporating robust evaluation methodologies, and leverage human feedback, to mitigate hallucination and enhance the overall quality of responses.

For businesses in the video security space, it is imperative to closely collaborate with AI experts when considering the implementation of LLMs. By partnering with professionals who possess expertise in both technology and video security, businesses can effectively leverage the advantages offered by LLMs while minimizing potential drawbacks. Traces boasts a remarkable team of professionals who have extensively tested the latest LLMs and have a proven track record in creating some of the most advanced AI video analytic systems. With our profound knowledge of Computer Vision and video security, we can determine the most suitable LLM for your specific business applications.
