EVALK - AI security solutions
We automate your CCTV cameras with AI, and turn them into gun detectors
Gun Violence Issue
Gun violence is a daily tragedy affecting the lives of individuals around the world. More than 500 people die every day because of violence committed with firearms. Anyone can be affected by firearm violence but in certain situations gun violence disproportionately impacts communities of colour, women and other marginalized groups in society. Sometimes, the mere presence of firearms can make people feel threatened and fearful for their lives with severe and long-term psychological effects on individuals and whole communities.
The Problem Of Mass Shootings
Mass shootings are typically defined as shootings where four or more victims are killed. In the USA, between 2009 and 2016, there were: 156 mass shootings with a total of 848 people killed and 339 injured Public mass shootings account for less than 1% of gun deaths in the USA. However, public mass shootings have a profound emotional and psychological effect on survivors, families and communities. They have created an environment in which people feel unsafe in public places, such as churches, schools, concert venues and cinemas which impacts their human rights to religion, education and leisure.
We use computer vision to automatically identify threats in existing security camera systems, and instantly alert the law enforcement. It drastically increases chances to prevent gun violence, and gives way more time to the police to respond to the call, and for residents to escape from violence as well. Let's use the power of the AI to defeat the violence first in the communities that we crave, and then all over the world.
In the old days, you would have 4 or more guys watching the same security screens in shifts, trying handle everything: detect trespassers, such tiny things as firearms on the smal screens, criminal behavior... the list goes on. Now, you just need an AI guard watching your security cameras!
95% of all security cameras are watched by human operators, it is ofthen expensive, inefective, and usually not availiable as an option for those who needs that, for crime like robbery to be prevented report has to be made in the first 3 minutes, and according to the data we have, the average mass shooting lasts 12.5 minutes, yet it takes law enforcement an average of 18 minutes to neutralize the threat.,that is why usually surveillance works only as an evidence collector of the crime. We can change that.
