A Gurugram Startup Develops An AI Warden To Monitor UP Prisons’ CCTVs

UP government will use the AI-based video of the startup Staqu, known as Jarvis, to assist the police in monitoring 70 prisons around the state.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be helpful in terms of spotting anomalies or patterns. AI applicants can vary greatly. Now, the Uttar Pradesh government wants to deploy AI in its prisons.

It seems like the UP government has worked with Staqu, a startup from Gurugram. Through this partnership, UP will use the AI-based video of the company, known as Jarvis, to assist the police in monitoring 70 prisons around the state.

JARVIS is deployed as some kind of video wall, monitoring CCTV cameras footage. The system will flag any segment which seems to contain illegal activity. To spot when prisoners are getting into a fight or dealing contraband, JARVIS uses a combination of computer vision and object recognition.

In 70 prisons in Uttar Pradesh, Staqu states that it has already equipped 700 cameras within a 900km area with JARVIS. The system will look for illegal use of weapons and mobile phones, unauthorized intrusions, violence, and more.

Staqu’s co-founder and CEO, Atul Rai, said that the deployment of JARVIS and the company’s partnership with the Uttar Pradesh government is a proud moment as they help India’s police force realize intelligent video analytics. The company is looking forward to integrating JARVIS to more systems in the upcoming future.

JARVIS, according to Staqu, is also used for other security applications. The company is planning on integrating the AI with the system of the local police forces in Telangana, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana, and Punjab.
