Synaptiq and AlgoLook Demo Machine Vision Mask Detection Model at 2021 NSC Safety Congress and Expo

Synaptiq | October 12, 2021

Synaptiq and AlgoLook Demo Machine Vision Mask Detection Model at 2021 NSC Safety Congress and Expo
Synaptiq, a full-scale artificial intelligence firm creating customized AI solutions, and AlgoLook, an AI product company focused on building technology products to enhance safety, security, health, and wellbeing in facilities, have developed a machine vision mask detection model that will be demonstrated at the 2021 National Safety Council Congress and Expo in Orlando, Florida, October 11 - 13, 2021. The demo will be featured in the conference’s new NSC Technology Safety Pavilion, at Booth 1975 on the conference floor, and will be available for conference attendees to test.

The novel machine vision model uses a deep neural network trained on thousands of images to detect the presence or absence of masks in milliseconds. 

“As businesses rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic and in-person events take place again, it will be imperative to continue to ensure attendees are protected. Mask-wearing is a huge part of mitigating virus spread and getting back to business as usual. Our machine vision model gives safety and compliance officials an efficient and reliable tool that can help them do their jobs better during this stressful time.”

Stephen Sklarew, CEO of Synaptiq
 
The specialized tools and techniques used to bring this mask detection model to life can readily be deployed to solve other safety and security challenges, such hard hat and high visibility vest enforcement, weapon location, hazard proximity detection, and more.

“We are very excited to be showcased in the new NSC Technology Safety Pavilion. We believe demonstrating Synaptiq’s mask compliance model is very timely, as this show requires a mask to attend. This model is one of many that can be delivered via AlgoLook’s SAFE platform, along with our proprietary sensor, AlgoAir, a Vape and THC detector.” 

AlgoLook CEO and Co-founder John Dankovchik
