Why can you search the entire Web in 50 milliseconds, but you can't find anything in video without a lot of hunting and pecking?
That question drives Camio to be the leading real-time video search engine that works with all cameras. There’s a new generation of applications made possible by machines that see and understand what’s happening in the real world. Camio is the best software platform for delivering those applications, and the first focus area is the security industry.
The impact of Machine Learning on the E̸v̸i̸d̸e̸n̸c̸e̸ Security Industry is transformative. We spend $40B each year to protect people and property. But the sheer volume of events exceeds anyone’s budget for the kind of triage required to provide protection. Camio uses the latest advances in machine learning to help the security industry shift from evidence collection to protective security — while also radically reducing costs.
