This episode revolves around fire. Specifically, how to detect and fight fires. Firefighter Shan Raffel is a true luminary. He teaches Melena and Geoff the language of fire. Bosch expert Soeren Wittmann also teaches how to read fire, but instead of firefighters, he smartens up security cameras. His team has enabled a camera system to visually recognize fire and smoke. It outperforms other fire detection devices in speed and reliability and is particularly superior in buildings with high ceilings. Multiple algorithms are involved with the detection, feeding an artificial intelligence system for alarm decisions. The next camera generation will also be equipped with a deep learning model. Caroline Hartl offers a sneak peak from her perspective as a developer at Bosch. With all this intelligence, Aviotec is much more than a fire detector. It can feed information to firefighters like Shan and even use further intelligent video analytics to detect events beyond fire.
