By leveraging the latest advances in deep learning research, Silk offers state-of-the-art image and audio recognition

  • People Detection

    Accurately detect the presence of a person in a variety of environments. Whether it be in the home, outdoors, or in a store, Silk’s algorithms can detect a person under varying lighting conditions and occlusions.

    • Know where people are spending their time in a retail store
    • Detect when someone has entered your yard or front porch
    • Save power and storage by only recording when a person is seen

  • Facial Recognition

    Silk’s algorithms can recognize specific faces without a clumsy enrollment or training process. A single image is enough to identify the same individual over time.

    • Add face recognition as part of multi-factor authentication for access control
    • Recognize who’s coming home without training on specific faces
    • Instantly search cameras at a shopping mall to find your missing child
    • Be alerted when someone else attempts to gain access to your vehicle

  • Object Detection

    Reliably identify any object using Silk’s deep learning-based algorithms. Leverage pre-trained models or use Silk’s tools to easily create your own object detection model.

    • Know when your dog is misbehaving and has jumped onto your couch
    • Count the vehicles that have entered a parking lot
    • Create custom models for your specific application

  • Audio Detection

    Audio cues are often just as important as visual indicators. Silk’s algorithm can detect unique audio signals to understand when a specific sound is heard.

    • Detect when your baby is crying to trigger a lullaby
    • Recognize when someone has broken a glass window in your store or home
    • Know when people are yelling to be alerted of commotion
