From Cloud To The Edge: On-Device Artificial Intelligence Boosts Performance

If artificial intelligence (AI) goes according to plan, we’ll barely notice it taking hold. As a result, and despite the hyperbole, AI may be the quietest major computing revolution the world has ever known. What’s happening at one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals is a great example.

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) clinicians see more than 300,000 children every year, many of them with critical care needs. To ensure its patients receive the best possible care in a safe and secure environment, GOSH began testing an AI-based person recognition system where medical staff, patients, and authorized visitors receive access to certain secure areas of the hospital while any unauthorized entrants are either stopped or flagged by the system. The solution uses a network of AI-enabled smart cameras to examine each person’s face, body structure, and gait. The system then automatically cross-checks facial features against a database of registered people. READ MORE ON: TECHNOLOGY REVIEW
