Speaker Interview: Skylark Labs

You will be speaking at the Crowded Places conference at SCTX 2019. Can you give us a brief insight into the areas you will be covering in your address?

My talk will focus on introducing software solutions which can help law enforcement to recognize individuals in crowds using face recognition in footage recorded from CCTV cameras. The recognition software has the ability to identify individuals in the presence of disguises like head scarfs, glasses, breads, scarfs etc.

In addition, it is difficult put enough CCTV camera to monitor large crowds. I will also introduce a software which sits on top a drone to monitor large crowds to detect suspicious activities.

The conference theme is ‘Delivering effective protective security to accessible public spaces’. What do you believe are the major challenges in providing effective security to accessible public spaces?

I think the biggest challenge for monitoring for suspicious individuals or events in large public spaces is crowd. It becomes quite difficult for law enforcement or these softwares to monitor crowded areas efficiently.

With regards to your own address, what more can soft target and crowded places stakeholders do to better secure their sites and facilities with the current threat landscape in mind?

I think the best way to safeguard a property is to add more security apparatus to monitor the property. This can be either more law enforcement or more intelligent software systems. It is ideal to go for the software solutions as they can functions 24*7 effectively.

What can delegates expect to take away from your session?

They can expect to gain knowledge about new software tools which can effectively monitor large public crowds. These systems can aid the law enforcement agencies to help find suspicious individuals and events.
