From sensors to physical security information management, artificial intelligence (AI) is permeating every aspect of physical security; however, AI is still viewed as esoteric, prohibiting its full exploitation by security practitioners in the field. In this presentation, an overview of AI as it pertains to physical security will be analyzed with in-depth coverage of elements such as machine learning, deep learning, and sensor fusion, in a way that is easily applicable for security practitioners in the field. In addition, the application of AI to optimize probability of detection, nuisance alarm rates, and total cost of ownership via scalable, ubiquitous sensing will be described via representative examples of optical fiber sensing, video analytics and face recognition, as they are deployed in the field.
