The security industry has entered a new era-the era of pan-security. The so-called pan-security has two meanings. One is that the boundaries of security have begun to expand outward, and the scope of business has expanded. With the integration and development of technologies such as the Internet of Things, cloud computing, big data, and artificial intelligence, the boundaries of security have become increasingly blurred. Even the corporate positioning of security giants such as Hikvision and Dahua Co., Ltd. is no longer a security company, but an Internet of Things solution provider and service provider with video as the core; second, there is continuous fresh “blood” injection In the security industry, industry giants such as Huawei, Alibaba, ZTE, Tencent, and Ping An have entered the security industry across borders, and security operations and gameplay are becoming more and more diverse.
Why the trend of pan-security has become particularly prominent in the past two years, thanks to the continuous maturity of AI, Internet of Things, big data, and cloud computing technologies, such as AI. AI penetrates into all walks of life, which contains a huge market. And just as people need eyes, the landing of artificial intelligence in various fields also needs "eyes"-video surveillance systems. This gives security companies the capital to go out and also provides an entry point for companies in other industries to enter the security field. It can be said that audio and video are an entrance. The core of security lies in audio and video. The combination of audio and video with AI, Internet of Things, big data, cloud computing and other technologies, especially AI, will burst out infinite possibilities. This is an opportunity.
AI empowers thousands of industries, which is the biggest opportunity for the development of security. Under this great opportunity, enterprises must focus on the scene, combine their own advantages, and shape their core competitiveness, in order to seize the best opportunity and realize the opportunity.
Taking AI empowering public security as an example, with the maturity of artificial intelligence, big data and other technologies, video surveillance equipment based on face recognition and image recognition has become the focus of current public security work.
By making full use of face recognition and structuring technologies, it is possible to centrally collect and manage all personnel, vehicles and non-motor vehicles in the public environment. Structured cameras have sufficient computing power, 2T and 4T have become standard, and can quickly extract information about people, including clothing, wearing characteristics, demographic characteristics such as gender and age, etc. Combined with face recognition, it can even confirm the person's identity. The specific identity is associated with the public security files such as ID number, name and other basic personnel files to form one person per file.
The integrated application platform of video and image information is the core of the system solution. It requires platform + front-end cameras + back-end storage + face server + structured server + large screen to realize system sales and integrate data such as people and vehicles structured cases and events , to realize applications such as standard docking, unified storage, query and retrieval, control and alarm, and research and analysis.
The front-end surveillance camera mainly collects information such as video, vehicle, face and human body. The fence hotspot device can collect the IMSI information of the mobile phone number. Through the platform software, the face information and the mobile phone IMSI information can be correlated and analyzed, which can realize multiple associations of target identities.
For the trajectory of key personnel, the IMSI information of the mobile phone card can be collected, and video analysis data such as face recognition, vehicle recognition, and structuring can be used to record the trajectory of key targets, and improve the competitiveness and application characteristics of the Safe City system solution.
At the same time, the integration of license plate recognition technology with face recognition, structuring, mobile phone fence and other technologies can further enrich the object file, and the vehicle file in the platform can be queried according to the license plate of the vehicle, including comprehensive index, registration information, physical characteristics, driving trajectory , violation information, etc., combined with people and mobile phone information, can realize multiple information associations of people, vehicles, and mobile phones.
Challenges in the Pan-Security Era
From the perspective of the entire pan-security market, no matter from the construction level, the technical level and the standard level, China's security market advantages are constantly spilling out, and it is in a leading position in the global market, which should be a good thing for the security industry. However, due to the continuous expansion of the security business scope, it will also bring new challenges to the technology research and development and management of enterprises.
With the gradual in-depth application of artificial intelligence in the security industry, this borderless pan-security pattern makes the problem of fragmentation more and more prominent. There are many scenarios in the security industry and are extremely fragmented. From the perspective of enterprises, companies cannot and have no ability to "swallow" all scenarios. This requires companies to find their own advantages to cut into a certain sub-industry. First small and fine can be big and deep.
In the era of pan-security, traditional security companies will actively embrace the wave of the Internet+ era. In the cross-border integration with multiple industries, relying on new-generation technologies such as big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things, and mobile Internet to establish data visualization and service personality Provide users with higher quality products.
In addition, the security market is inseparable from the overall economic environment, and in the context of the tense Sino-US trade war, the Chinese security market has also been affected a lot.
The Sino-US trade war has shown many disadvantages of China's security industry. Although China's security industry is the world's first, the shortcomings in core technology have brought threats to China's security industry. Taking AI algorithms as an example, almost all original ideas and inventions come from abroad, and domestic achievements are mainly reflected in application and optimization. Due to the lack of core technology, domestic security companies are prone to encounter intellectual property problems when they go to sea, and they need to be prepared in advance. But at the same time, the Sino-US trade war has also opened up new markets for China's security industry, bringing more opportunities for China's own technologies, standards and products. Not only security companies, but also domestic companies should seize the opportunity to increase investment in research and development in the field of basic technologies. In rounds of technological evolution, they should continuously improve the capabilities and proportions of core technologies, and truly have the ability to compete with international giants. In addition, the US sanctions on Huawei chips will also have a greater impact on security, which will definitely hurt in a short period of time.
