BRSLabs’ AISight - The World’s Only Behavioral Recognition System for Video Surveillance

It was really creepy when this marketing video claimed “AISight is not constrained by human rules”.

I’m actually taking that out of context - I think they were trying to claim that AISight bases its video recognition of what’s normal and abnormal, based on its own analysis of video history, rather than preprogrammed rules.  But it’s still an amazing thing to hear.

It’s pronounced “eyesight” of course.

Today’s excitement:

Malcolm, shark-shirted, super shark snuggler.

Dorothy models the new camp beds we got at Cabela’s.

I’m proud to have organized the basement books a little better.  Someday I want to get these on bookshelves upstairs.

I was organizing the basement and found this anthology from 1985.  Wow.

Adding an overhead light in the sewing room, with the added complication that we want to reuse the wall switch, which formerly controlled one of the outlets.

Which means I have to get up in the attic with the loose insulation. At least it’s not August anymore.

In the first photo, the connection from the switch comes up on the left side, then goes to a junction box in the middle. From there it runs to the right side of the photo, then dives down to the outlet.

In the second photo I’ve added a tee and marked the spot for the new box.

Right around photo three I was feeling like Wile E. Coyote. Look out below!

Last photo - everything’s connected, although there was still an hour of pulling recalcitrant wires to go.

Now I’m done with the attic (which is good due to the mess) but still have to wire everything up and see if it works.
