There are tens of millions of security cameras across America, and yet the vast majority of them go completely unmonitored.
Recent headlines have complained that too many crimes are being committed in broad daylight, right in front of security cameras, with no help on the way. In most cases, the footage isn't reviewed until hours later, AFTER the crime has already happened and the perpetrator is long gone.
City governments have shelled out billions for these elaborate security systems, and they're understandably frustrated with the poor results.

The source of the problem isn't hard to spot: humans can only watch a handful of cameras at a time, and it simply isn't possible to hire enough human employees to watch all of the video feeds.
Let's use Chicago as an example, as it's unfortunately remained a city that has had a long fight against the spread of crime.
In Chicago, there are 35,000 cameras installed throughout Chicago Transit's vast subway network. It's often considered the biggest security system in America. All of these cameras feed into a security command center that's manned around the clock by a staff of 20.

That's 1,750 cameras to watch per person! Which is obviously completely impossible.
From a staffing standpoint, there's no easy fix. Even if Chicago boosts the size of their command center ten times, so that it can support a staff of 200, that still wouldn't be enough to solve the core problem. There would still be 175 cameras per person, which remains well beyond the capacity of even an expert staff member.
That's why city governments are turning to the only solution that can actually solve this problem: AI.
New AI software has the power to watch thousands of feeds at once and send security alerts in real-time — which is often fast enough to prevent crimes from happening in the first place.
It's a quantum leap forward in the fight against violent crime — and it's arrived at the perfect time. The rate of violent crime has hit an all-time high and security has grown to a $68 billion market.
I've been following this market as it develops, and one company stands out from the rest. Its AI software was spun off from a successful security project at Intel, and during testing, it's been shown to reduce crime rates by up to 45%.
I’ve put together a new presentation on why this AI firm has developed the crime-fighting solution city governments so desperately need… and why it’s also creating an “emergency” profit opportunity for investors.
Tens of thousands of security cameras are already in place. Now it’s just a matter of putting them to work.
