About the company: 

NeuraVue is a start-up with a focus on bringing innovation and effectiveness to the video surveillance industry.

Today, CCTV cameras can be incredibly valuable as a way to deter crime and manage security. However, the implementation of these devices often falls short of reaching their full potential.

NeuraVue provides the convenience of an accessible mobile app, users can gain real-time insights into their safety, get instant alerts, and check up on anything that seems out of the ordinary within the areas covered by the CCTV cameras, with the added benefit of behavioral pattern estimation through sophisticated AI algorithms.

One of the unique features of NeuraVue is image analysis that can provide behavioral pattern predictions, highlighting possible mental health issues, falls, and other actions that might have an impact on the user’s security.

The Toronto-based start-up differs from competing services because it enables users to vastly increase their response time, something that can be extremely important in a critical situation. The AI algorithm can actually detect criminal and aggressive actions through sophisticated behavior analysis, allowing swift response and fast assistance. Protecting property, assets, and, more importantly, people has never been so intelligent and seamless.

Describe the project.: 

NeuraVue is an AI-powered video monitoring software that uses the latest technology in both artificial intelligence and machine learning to dramatically increase your security networks' efficiency.

This video monitoring software is able to search through video footage in real-time and immediately alert your security personnel if any anomalies are detected in the footage.

What does it detect? It is a downloadable mobile app system that uses AI and Machine learning to detect various cases including:

  • Physical Abuse/Self-harm
  • Strangulation
  • Shooting
  • Beating
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Human Behavior Analysis
  • Fall Detection
  • Mental Health Issues

Role of the intern:

  • Building Data set: The candidate will be responsible for building out the dataset labeling front end, with user management, analytics, and statistical analyses.
  • Image enhancement in AI: With the help of the project team, the researcher will work on the integration of object detection and classification module. The researcher will work on improving object-tracking performance on embedded systems and evaluate image enhancement methods with classic and AI based algorithms

Required expertise/skills: 

  • Business strategy
  • Marketing strategy
  • Product survey & research
  • Product demand analysis
