Torrence Sound: An Innovative Approach to Privacy in Video Surveillance Security Solutions
As the use of surveillance cameras continues to expand for purposes like public safety, health monitoring, and commercial operations, concerns about privacy have surged. The omnipresence of CCTV cameras capturing people’s movements raises valid privacy apprehensions, prompting a need for innovative solutions to address this growing concern.
The article “How ML-powered video surveillance could improve security” from VentureBeat sheds light on the escalating use of surveillance systems. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of surveillance camera installations in the U.S. surged from 47 million to 85 million between 2015 and 2021, an 80% increase. Globally, the use of surveillance cameras was expected to surpass a billion in 2021, with the video surveillance market projected to grow at an annual rate exceeding 10% through 2026.
In this landscape of expanding surveillance, concerns about privacy infringement, especially related to facial recognition, have intensified. Recognizing these challenges and envisioning a future where increased surveillance doesn’t equate to diminished privacy, emphasis is placed on a privacy-focused approach in the development and implementation of ML-powered video surveillance.
Various cities in the U.S., including San Francisco, have responded to privacy concerns by instituting bans on facial recognition in surveillance cameras. Acknowledging the need for the responsible use of technology, efforts are made to balance security measures with privacy considerations.
