Shannon Reid Ph.D. is apart of a team that won a grant of $1,897,466.00
The grant begins October 1st, 2018 and will end on or around September 30, 2022.
This a research-based grant that will build safe and secure communities through real-time edge video analytics. The proposed technology offers a network of smart cameras that do not require continuous monitoring but instead are trained to generate alerts on the spot in real-time. Since the cameras identify behaviors and not identities, they can reduce biases, minimize false alarms, and protect personal privacy. The intelligent policing technology will be co-designed and co-created with the direct help of community residents, neighborhood leaders, and local business owners, as well as agencies including the City of Charlotte, and local law enforcement agencies in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Gaston counties.
