What is AIoT and why does it matter?

What is AIoT and why does it matter?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is probably one of the most talked about technologies. Everyone wants to claim that their product has AI in it, even if it doesn’t. And if it does contain ‘AI’, what type are we talking here?  By Andrew Grant, Senior Business Development Director, Vision & AI, Imagination Technologies

The economics of smart security cameras

The economics of smart security cameras
We’ve all experienced it: that house or commercial alarm sounding at full volume, causing a nuisance yet nobody taking it seriously because it’s become a common occurrence. One of the biggest challenges for deployment of surveillance/security cameras is the number of false alarms. By Simon Forrest, Director of Connectivity and Connected Home, Imagination Technologies.
