Edgecase AI —a leading AI announces the launch of the largest open-source dataset for gun detection in the world using synthetic data.
“It is imperative that public and private organizations have the right tools to detect guns and weapons in real-world situations,” said Kyle Giddens, CEO. “Until now there has not been enough data to teach AI systems how to detect weapons in real-time, but now Edgecase AI is providing researchers and businesses with the ability to download and implement a state-of-the-art, real-time gun detection algorithm with a single click and free of charge.
Edgecase AI is making history by providing the first data benchmark for the computer vision industry based on the use of Synthetic Data related to weapons detection. Edgecase AI is releasing the “Edgecase AI's Synthetic Gun Detection Dataset to the public for free, in order to help researchers and parties interested in developing gun detection algorithms with the data they need to achieve groundbreaking results.
Why Synthetic Data?
“Gathering data to train AI applications is difficult, costly and time-consuming. It typically requires the collection of millions of pictures of firearms, scouring Google for what limited Creative Commons content is available, or by working with governmental agencies, who rarely share such data.” said Giddens.
“In providing access to this data generated using our platform, we want to empower the world to be safer,” said Giddens.
