Since Columbine, more than 348,000 students have been exposed to gun incidents, with the 2021-2022 school year being a record year (193) for campus shootings. The time and place of the shooting are highly mixed:

  • 21.8% in the parking lot
  • 10.3% in the classroom
  • 10.2% at school sporting events

Traditional methods of protection, including fencing, window films, and automated door locks, don’t often apply and have not proven to be an effective deterrent when they do. These solutions are reactive in nature and limited in scope. This is where visual AI excels.

The Visual AI Advisor (VAIA) utilizes a school’s existing cameras to identify threats, safety-related issues, and activities. These include everything from identifying a perimeter breach or weapon to intrusion detection and loitering. Its ability to analyze video feeds in real-time, 24×7, and provide actionable alerts or trigger alarms, is critical when second counts. VAIA complements existing SROs and law enforcement resources and never takes a holiday.

Join this webinar to learn how visual AI ensures school safety, including weapon identification, strangers on campus, suspicious behavior, and more.

Benefits of VAIA include:

  • Real-time alerts on safety issues, including weapon detection
  • Deploy in days on your existing cameras
  • No data science or technical expertise is required
  • Proven solution under contract in 17 countries, 130,000 cameras

Register today to discover how artificial intelligence is redefining school safety and helping ensure our students and faculty can get back to focusing on education.
