Is AI CCTV the Future of Security in Malaysian Schools?

With the increasing security threats faced by schools in Malaysia, the question of whether to implement AI-powered CCTV surveillance systems is becoming more relevant. The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in CCTV surveillance has been gaining momentum worldwide and is touted as a more efficient and effective way to monitor public spaces, including schools. But is it the right solution for Malaysian schools? Let’s take a closer look at the pros and cons. What is AI CCTV? First, let’s understand what AI-powered CCTV is. It involves the use of advanced algorithms and machine learning to analyse video footage in real-time and flag any suspicious activity or behaviour. This can include anything from detecting unauthorised access to restricted areas to identifying individuals who may pose a threat to the school community. Advantages of AI CCTV One of the main benefits of AI-powered CCTV is its ability to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of security monitoring. Unlike traditional CCTV systems, which require human operators to constantly monitor the footage, AI-powered systems can automatically flag potential threats and alert security personnel in real-time. This can help to reduce response times and improve the effectiveness of security operations. Moreover, AI-powered CCTV can help to

The Digital Transformation of Railways

The railway industry has undergone a significant transformation in recent years, with the adoption of digital technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT). Digitalisation has revolutionised the way railways operate, improving efficiency, safety, and cost-effectiveness. In this article, we will explore the digital transformation of railways, with a focus on benefits, challenges, and the future outlook. Benefits of DIgitalisation in Railway Industry The digital transformation of railways has brought numerous benefits, including increased efficiency, cost savings, and improved safety. Digital technologies such as sensors, data analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) enable railways to monitor performance of trains, tracks, and other equipment in real-time, identifying potential issues before they become serious problems. This predictive maintenance approach minimises downtime and reduces cost associated with maintenance and repair. Digitalisation has also improved the safety of railways. Sensors and IoT devices enable railways to monitor track conditions, identify potential hazards, and prevent accidents. Real-time monitoring of trains and tracks can also help railway operators respond quickly to emergencies, reducing the risk of injuries and fatalities. Challenges of Digitalisation in Railway Industry Despite the benefits of digitalisation, the railway industry faces several challenges in implementing digital technologies. One of the biggest challenges is the cost

EKTECH Assists Oil & Gas Companies With IoT Smart Gas Meter Reading

The demand for energy is growing every day, which makes oil and gas companies essential to the operations of industries, buildings, residences, and vehicles. However, this gives rise to a new concern, which is: How can oil and gas companies collect readings from different places more efficiently? That’s where the Internet of Things (IoT) comes in. IoT provides oil and gas companies with a variety of solutions ranging from real-time updates on gas infrastructure conditions to detect abnormalities to improving overall maintenance efficiency and asset lifespan. In 2018, EKTECH assisted an oil and gas company in improving their business processes using IoT. The company’s business model is providing piped-in gas to power chillers for air-conditioners in office building in Kuala Lumpur. Building owners are then charged for their gas consumption, which is based on readings from their gas meters that are in the maintenance room. However, these maintenance rooms are usually located in the basement of the buildings, which create a challenge for the oil and gas company to collect the gas meter readings as the buildings’ infrastructure makes it difficult for internet cabling. Without the proper cables, there is no internet coverage, so readings cannot be collected remotely by

How AI Video Analytics Benefits Your Organisation

It goes without saying that video surveillance is essential to an organisation’s security, but with the prevalence of artificial intelligence (AI) in contemporary video surveillance technology, organisations can experience a whole new level of security. However, business leaders must exercise caution while choosing an AI solution to protect their place of business as the current physical security industry is rife with video surveillance tools and applications – how do you know which one is the right one for your business? First, let’s understand what AI video analytics entails. AI video analytics utilises computer software programs to analyse audio and images from video surveillance cameras in order to identify humans, vehicles, objects, attributes, and events. They function using machine vision, which is a series of algorithms or mathematical procedures that work like a flowchart or questionnaire. For example, surveillance AI is usually programmed to send an alert when it detects anomalies, and to identify whether something is an anomaly, the AI will compare the object seen with hundreds of thousands of stored reference images of humans in different postures, angles, positions and movements or learnt behavioral patterns stored in its knowledge base. If this sounds overwhelming, fret not, we will be
