Remark Holdings, Inc., a leading provider of artificial intelligence (“AI”) powered video analytics solutions, announced today that it will be joining NVIDIA as part of PNY’s booth at the upcoming Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona on November 7-9, 2023.
Remark will be joining PNY Technologies, Inc., the leading distributor of NVIDIA graphic cards and GPUs, to showcase Remark’s Smart Safety Platform (“SSP”) in its booth along with NVIDIA as a model for practical applications of NVIDIA’s Metropolis Smart City Program.
“We are excited to host Remark AI at our booth at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona,” says Youssef Nadiri, PNY’s Product Manager for Edge AI Solutions. “Remark AI’s powerful video analytics software solutions, when combined with our family of hardware products, will offer our customers a practical application of our partner NVIDIA’s Metropolis Smart City Solutions, laying a solid foundation to build smart cities of the 21st century.”
The Smart City Expo World Congress is the world’s biggest and most influential event for cities and urban innovation. Every year, leaders from the most innovative companies, governments and organizations gather to move cities forward to create a better future. By bringing together the latest vendors who are providing the latest technologies for urban innovation across the globe, the Congress empowers cities to face the critical challenges the world faces today such as climate change, accelerating a bright urban paradigm toward a smart and efficient city.
Remark’s Smart Safety Platform provides edge AI-driven video analytics, rapidly analyzing video content at scale to provide real-time analytics on people, traffic and vehicle management, including crowd density, behavioral analytics and anomaly detection within public spaces. One practical solution attracting cities attention is Remark AI’s focus on waste management and the subsequent reduction of littering, which can be detected and alerted to the relevant authorities. Since littering costs cities multiple billions of dollars globally, any reduction of waste by utilizing Remark AI’s SSP can provide an immediate return of investment through the reduction of costs from a city’s waste management program that aims to reduce the impact of climate change.
For city planners and decision-makers, the Smart Safety Platform identifies trends and patterns in behavior, known as “crowd intelligence,” that can be used to predict risks before they become an intractable challenge, whilst providing the information needed to make the most efficient use of city resources while meeting the needs of the public.
