Nvidia AI-powered cameras

Nvidia decided to hire AnyVision (the company works on AI-tech development) to create facial recognition technology for technologically advanced cities around the world.

They are to install AI-powered facial recognition into CCTV surveillance cameras.

The camera will scan faces 24/7 identifying and tracking persons in a crowd with 99% accuracy.

China is currently working on the eyewear that will be able to recognize 1.3 billion people for 3 seconds.
