Ortus Labs Lets Any Network-Connected Video Camera Track People or Objects in Motion

No privacy issues here, folks: Dallas-based Ortus Labs has released software that lets any network-connected video camera “identify, differentiate and track people, vehicles, or objects in motion.” The breakthrough is using artificial intelligence software instead of expensive image-processing hardware, thereby reducing the cost and expanding the number of feeds. It’s not clear whether the system can identify individuals or just distinguish people from objects. Then again, it’s trainable, so the answer might change in the future.  Nope, no privacy issues at all.
