You're talking about everything from cameras to AI software that's simplifying and expanding the whole scope of what surveillance means. It's beyond just security and catching the bad guy these days. It's optimizing your business based on the learnings that you have from your surveillance footage on how to place products within your store or to optimize manufacturing processes.” - Jesica Burton - Smart cities are being enabled by the convergence of multiple technologies including 5G, low-cost high-resolution video cameras, and traffic sensors. All these technologies create data that needs to be stored. - “The world is changing for smart cities; capabilities are increasing, but at the same time, costs are significantly decreasing.”— Jesica Burton - When dealing with customers, Jessica addresses the fact that there is the right drive for the correct application.
