Using Gun Detection Technology To Stop School Shootings
Rob Huberty is ZeroEyes’ COO. CBS3 Norfolk, VA spoke with Rob about ZeroEyes’ gun detection technology. The entire article can be found here. Rob spoke about how the company was formed. In addition, he shared about why this is so important to him and his team. In his own words,
“I want to stop active shooters. It’s sickening to see a shooting every single day and somebody else’s life is devastated by gun violence.”
As a former Navy SEAL Rob knows the experience of being in gun fire all too well. He and his team believe that nobody should have to go through that, especially children. After returning home from active duty, Rob was looking for a purpose. As a result, Rob and some of his former SEAL Team members joined together to form ZeroEyes as a result.
ZeroEyes Gun Detection Technology Saves Valuable Time
ZeroEyes can now detect AK-47. AR15, 9mm handguns, and other fire arms. Without ZeroEyes cameras are able to capture information passively. Cameras provide forensic data to determine what occurred after a tragedy happens. While that does assist with forensic investigation, it does not help during the crisis itself. On the other hand, with ZeroEyes in place, those same cameras become active.
For the past several years Rob and his team have been training cameras to be more intelligent. By installing their software at test sites, they show the cameras guns and teach the machine to learn. The term “machine learning” is becoming popularized now, but it can be misleading. In some respects artificial intelligence teaches itself. However people often don’t understand that it’s human beings who are doing the teaching.
Rob says it best when he says,
“We view ourselves as one component of safety. It’s not the only solution…it’s going to require a lot of different components. This would be a value add.”
