BRS Labs, providers of “behavioral analytics”, which made some loud pronouncements at ASIS [and who will have an end user participating in TechSec 2012] announced the other day that Houston will use its software in its city surveillance “critical infrastructure protection program.”

BRS say its software “AISight,” [which it pronounces “eyesight”] can “attach to existing video surveillance infrastructure and watch, learn, and identify unusual behavioral patterns in real time …  to proactively identify security violations, potential criminal activity and more serious threats.”

In a press release, Hobby Wright, BRS Labs VP for Strategic Programs said: "We are seeing substantial demand for our reason-based video surveillance software and the City of Houston is one of many American cities deploying and developing programs that incorporate our intelligence into their video surveillance operations."

Very interesting—curious to  learn how it works out.
