Lightning Talk: Activity Based Intelligence, Video Analytics & Apache Spark

SESSION BEGINS 5/27 at 11:45AM PDT

Integrating video analytics into existing analysis workflows can prove to be time-consuming and lack the performance necessary to analyze video at scale. As we progress towards the future of intelligence analysis, video analytics must augment and recommend rather than focus on replacing GEOINT tradecraft.

In this lightning talk with Blueprint’s Managing Director of Innovation, Gary Nakanelua, we will demonstrate the use of Apache Spark in a cloud-based video analytics solution for use by federal intelligence agencies. The demonstration will include identifying patterns in vehicle movement as captured in traffic cameras, detecting anomalies within those patterns, and recommending other areas of interest where observed traffic behaviors match.

Video Analytics at Scale: DL, CV, ML on Databricks Platform

SESSION BEGINS 5/27 at 3:15PM PDT

Join Blueprint’s Claudiu Barbura for a live demo of our advanced video analytics solution, NASH. This is a technical deep dive into the engineering and data science employed throughout the project. Hear about the lessons learned from building and publishing it in the Azure Marketplace, the challenges encountered by combining Deep Learning and Computer Vision for object detection and tracking, the operational management and tool building efforts for scaling the video processing and insights extraction to large GPU/CPU Databricks clusters and the machine learning required to detect behavioral patterns, anomalies and scene similarities across processed video tracks.
