TALOS Gun Detection

Model Overview

The CVEDIA TALOS Gun Detection algorithm is built to detect a wide variety of guns and rifles, while having a low false positive rate for other held objects such as phones and utility tools. By utilizing CVEDIA synthetic data technology, TALOS retains high accuracy in crowds and busy environments, as well as an improved contextual recognition of gun versus rifle, and pedestrians versus military persons.

TALOS can be customized with other weapon classes or gun classification parameters – please contact us for more information.

CVEDIA is a pioneer in the use of synthetic data for machine perception. We use deep learning to create synthetic-based detection and classification algorithms. CVEDIA models actually outperform traditional models because synthetic data allows for feature-based design. That means our models are safer and quicker to market. Today we work with over 30 of the world’s largest companies on their most complex deep learning projects.

Every model is backed by an ongoing maintenance service, as well as the ability to customize and add to a model through our in-house development team. We’ll even help you deploy our models in your software stack. Contact us for more information.

Fine Grain Classification

Speak to our team to discuss model classification as a service add on or as a separate model. CVEDIA’s in-house team will work with you to define your requirements, and build a synthetic-based model incorporating your classification specifications.

Additional Classes

CVEDIA models are built using proprietary synthetic data technology – meaning adding additional classes to your model is possible in a matter of weeks.

Use Cases

School Security

Integrate TALOS with your school security system to detect guns in real-time, even in crowds. TALOS will localize a gun before an incident occurs.

Intersections and Public Spaces

TALOS was built to be resilient against other handheld objects, making it ideal for busy public places, both indoor and outdoor.
