Michigan High School To Deploy Artificial Intelligence System To Detect Weapons In Real Time – Notify Security Staff Within SECONDS When One Is Seen

  • A Michigan high school is the first private school in the state to deploy an artificial intelligence system to detect weapons in real time
  • ZeroEyes’ system uses AI and computer vision that works with 3D maps of schools to identify exactly where a shooter is when a gun is detected
  • When I realized how significantly it shortens law enforcement response time, I knew: [it] was a no-brainer, said the school president
  • According to Education Week, there have been 35 school shootings in 2022 with injuries or deaths – with 30 dead and 76 injured in the incidents

A Michigan high school is the first private school in the state to use artificial intelligence to detect weapons as part of its security system — amid the nation’s school shooting epidemic.

Lansing Catholic High School is using state money to pay for a video analytics platform from a company called ZeroEyes that builds AI systems.

ZeroEyes technology is layered on the school’s existing video security equipment. AI and computer vision then work together with existing 3D satellite maps of a building – so that when a gun is spotted, its exact location lights up to let officials know where the shooter is.

The real-time AI warning system aims to prevent gun violence.

According to Education Week, which has tracked school shootings since 2018, there have been 35 shootings in the United States this year alone that have left people injured or killed. Such incidents have left 30 dead and 76 injured.

The system alerts school officials and first responders within seconds of detecting a gun.

By getting that information in real time, security personnel can then lock doors or try to get people to safety. Rescuers can move toward the shooter much faster, armed with the knowledge of what type of weapon – or how many weapons – the shooter is carrying.

The most recent school shooting in the US was this week. A student was shot and injured Tuesday by another student outside a Massachusetts high school.

According to Mass Shooting Tracker, there have been 608 mass shootings in America so far this year.

“While we already have a robust security system in place, with campus-wide cameras and a locking boot system, when I saw the ZeroEyes demo and realized how significantly the response time of law enforcement is reduced during an active shooting event, I knew that adopting the solution for our school was a no-brainer,” Dominic Iocca, the school’s principal, said in the press release.

ZeroEyes was founded by former Navy Seals and special operations veterans with the goal of preventing bloodshed.

The school did not share the total cost of the AI ​​gun detection system.

Video feeds from the system are monitored around the clock by former military personnel to verify their accuracy.

The system has also been installed at Oxford and Vassar high schools in Michigan, but the company also plans to provide the technology to government agencies.

“We are definitely committed to our commercial and education activities, and that will always be the core focus of the company,” said JT Wilkins, VP of government solutions at ZeroEyes. BizJournals.

‘But government work is just as important. If you look at the statistics of an active shooting incident, 25% of those active shootings took place on government property. So this is an opportunity for us to really develop that next-generation responsiveness.”

Captain Matthew Matuszak, the director of innovation at Minot Air Force Base, told the business publication that ZeroEyes “adds an extra layer of protection for our pilots, radically improving our response times and ability to deter a potential attack.”

ZeroEyes technology is currently used in 26 states, and the company raised a $20.9 million Series A funding round a year ago.
