Atos has launched its Atos Computer Vision Platform, a highly scalable end-to-end artificial intelligence video and image analytics platform.

The comprehensive video and image analytics solution combines a full offering bringing together a set of pre-trained and customisable AI models.

The Atos Computer Vision Platform is designed to enable organisations to process and analyse massive amounts of complex video and image data in real-time so that they can automatically monitor, manage and improve working practices, and improve security and surveillance processes to guarantee people and asset safety, across a wide range of sectors such as manufacturing, transport and retail/airport security with many different tailored use cases.

AI video and image analysis is used in many various use cases, such as transport safety and traffic monitoring, quality control in manufacturing and location tracking. Atos says the new platform is the only solution able to serve such a wide variety of use cases, from manufacturing to smart city management, and airport/retail security to crowd movement monitoring.

"Data collected from such implementations can provide many valuable insights to businesses which in turn can be used to reduce error rates, guarantee people and asset safety and to offer frictionless and personalised customer experiences," it says.

From Cloud to Edge

Atos Computer Vision Platform provides video and image analysis across the full spectrum - from Cloud to Edge, meaning it can be managed from the Cloud, or on an edge server for real-time video analytics. Atos proposes a range of edge servers to deploy computer vision at the edge in real-time, close to the data source this is the BullSequana Edge and BullSequana Edge nano. The rugged BullSequana Edge nano can be used in any type of environment: from the shop floor, to outdoor and highly constrained environments in remote locations such as in outdoor construction, industrial mining or at sea.

Emmanuel Le Roux, SVP, global head of big data, Atos, says one of the unique aspects of the Atos Computer Vision Platform is its capacity to scale computer vision projects.

"Our pre-trained and customisable AI models, supported by our consultancy expertise, enable businesses to rapidly industrialise and deploy a computer vision solution, much faster than if developing their own project from scratch," he says.

"Atos stands out among IT services providers with its ability to offer a computer vision platform, combining its own software suite, hardware range and AI computer vision labs to deliver holistic advise-build-run solutions to clients addressing their business needs at scale," says Elitsa Bakalova, senior professional services analyst at Technology Business Research.

"Integrating pre-trained and customisable AI models in hardware improves Atos' ability to drive profitable growth through automation and recurring revenue streams."

Atos Computer Vision Platform is made up of:

  • Expertise, Consulting - Services supported by AI Computer Vision experts at 6 dedicated labs worldwide (Dallas, London, Sao Paulo, Grenoble, Dubai and Singapore) to develop custom AI models to fit specific customer needs and local regulations, with post-deployment support management and model tuning.
  • Software Products - Services based on VISuite, which is a suite of pre-trained and customisable AI models based on Atos IP (including Ipsotek and VI Protect) and a strong eco-system of partners.
  • Hardware Products - services: BullSequana Edge nano and BullSequana Edge servers which can be installed anywhere, the BullSequana SA20G server has high storage capacity and the BullSequana X451 server has maximum GPU density.
