As surveillance cameras have been widely installed worldwide, although the main purpose of those cameras is for monitoring, most significant task is to be able to analyse video contents and extract useful information. Deep learning based computer vision techniques utilising multi-layer neural network is drastically improving the performance of video analytics to a certain extent.

Several ongoing researches on deep learning based video analytics such as image super resolution, real-time multiple face recognition system, video anomaly detection and several implementations of embedded video analytic system on FPGA and Single Board Computers were discussed. Some possible scenarios of utilising video analytics, IoT for industries were also mentioned.

Dr. M. Shivakumar, Principal, GSSSIETW, Mysuru, gave the concluding remarks for the Webinar. Dr. S. Jalaja, IEEE, CAS Banglaore Chapter, was the panellist for this Webinar series.
