New PureTech Systems Patent Issued for Deep Learning Enhanced Object Incident Detection

PureTech Systems announced the issuance of a patent by the United States Patent Office – US Patent 11,288,517, System And Method For Deep Learning Enhanced Object Incident Detection. The ability to detect falling incidents is an increasing concern for cruise vessels, oil rigs, overpasses and buildings. The newly awarded patent for PureTech Systems addresses both the detection of falling incidents, as well as, overboard movements onto structures, such as cargo ships with the use of a Deep Learning neural network. In addition to providing necessary information to ships, the newly patented system can also be applied to anywhere a fall could occur.

Two-pronged Technique Detects Manipulated Facial Expressions and Identity Swaps

Computer scientists at UC Riverside can detect manipulated facial expressions in deepfake videos with higher accuracy than current state-of-the-art methods. The method also works as well as current methods in cases where the facial identity, but not the expression, has been swapped, leading to a generalized approach to detect any kind of facial manipulation. The achievement brings researchers a step closer to developing automated tools for detecting manipulated videos that contain propaganda or misinformation.

How AI Software Helps GSOCs Solve Real-World Problems

Global Security Operation Centers (GSOCs) are the hub of security operations, bringing together large amounts of data from surveillance, access control and intrusion systems into a centralized location, in addition to carrying out travel risk management and various intelligence operations. They play an important role by helping corporations to mitigate risk and gain situational awareness. All of this data, however, presents a challenge for GSOCs. Faced with processing thousands of events each day, GSOC operators find it hard to identify real threats from false nuisance alarms, leading to real breaches getting missed frequently. This defeats the entire purpose of GSOCs, which is to protect people and assets.
