When it comes to intelligent video surveillance in particular, AI-driven products are beginning to unlock new functionality, and even change the role video surveillance plays for companies. From better sensors to higher resolution cameras to more efficient processing units, we're seeing an unparalleled convergence of hardware and software. And that's creating new opportunities for everything from intelligent threat detection to personalized customer experiences. We're just at the beginning of this journey, but it's clear that best practices are changing. Seemingly in real-time, security professionals are reimagining how they'll build their teams, structure engagements and define their value. We're all still building the playbook as we use it, but here are four new, unspoken "rules" for the new world of security - and how they'll continue to evolve thanks to AI.
