Tied to Big Data Analytics will be a Game Changer Across
veteran Shipp joins speakers from companies as Google,
LinkedIn, Facebook, Pandora, IBM, VMware, Netflix and
Amazon at DataWeek 2012, the nation’s largest
data-centric conference and festival.
FRANCISCO, Calif. -- September 27, 2012 – Al Shipp, CEO
of leading video intelligence company 3VR, shared his
vision of what the future holds as video intelligence
technology comes of age in his keynote address at
DataWeek 2012. In a presentation titled "Minority
Report: No, Not the Future Anymore", Shipp described how
video intelligence tied to big data analytics will be a
game changer across industries from retail to banking to
crime prevention. He also discussed the vision behind
3VR’s CrimeDex, an online community of thousands of loss
prevention and law enforcement professionals.
DataWeek 2012 is San Francisco’s largest convergence of
Big Data, Social Data, and Cloud Data industry
professionals, featuring over 200 speakers from
companies such as Google, LinkedIn, Pandora, Facebook,
IBM, VMware, Netflix and Amazon.
Shipp shared stories from everyday situations in the
retail and hospitality industry to illustrate how video
intelligence can transform the consumer experience.
Shipp said a retail store system can now determine a
buyer’s interests based on images captured almost as
they walk into the store, and hotel staff can recognize
and greet guests by name, and know their preferences
even before asking for their identity cards.
Shipp highlighted how eventually this will help
companies make better decisions.
"In the universe of big data, everyone is talking about
structured data, and a few are talking about
unstructured data but no one is talking about how
unstructured data can be really leveraged. Video data
has the lion’s share in big data, is unstructured data,
and is in front of us. It is the elephant in the room
that gets bigger every day," said Shipp in his talk.
"Companies can harness all of this unstructured data for
making smarter business decisions."
Shipp delineated video intelligence concepts, and
highlighted several case studies across Retail, Banking
and Healthcare industries to illustrate how big and
small companies are benefiting from technology
breakthroughs in video intelligence. Addressing
questions from the audience, Shipp explained the inner
workings of the 3VR platform and offerings from the
company, as well as the limitless potential applications
of the technology.
