SparkCognition Government Systems (SGS) and Carahsoft Technology have announced a partnership to make SparkCognition’s Visual AI Advisor available to schools and Public Sector agencies nationwide.

Under the agreement, Carahsoft will act as a Master Government Aggregator for SGS, offering its computer vision technology to the Public Sector through Carahsoft’s reseller partners and NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2), National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) and OMNIA Partners contracts.

“Carahsoft has a strong track record of delivering top-tier solutions to Public Sector organizations at all levels of Government,” said Art Sellers, President and General Manager of SGS. “Through our partnership with Carahsoft, we will expand Government agency and educational institution access to our Visual AI Advisor, enhancing public safety and security with a more proactive approach.”

The SGS Visual AI Advisor is a secure and proactive computer vision solution that utilizes computer vision, deep learning, and existing camera systems to analyze situations in real time, provide actionable alerts to authorities, and proactively stop threats.

It can scale to thousands of cameras using a low-code/no-code integration framework and deploys at the edge, ensuring privacy and enterprise security.

The Visual AI Advisor can detect a variety of threats, such as a person holding a weapon, intrusion, trip and fall hazards, or a person in need of medical attention, all triggering real-time alerts, setting off on-premise alarms, or automatically initiating safety procedures.

The Visual AI Advisor is currently in use on more than 147,000 cameras across 16 countries and features over 125 pre-built use cases for safety, security, operational efficiency, quality control, and situational awareness.

“SGS’s innovative solutions empower Public Sector organizations and educational institutions to seamlessly integrate AI efficiencies into their existing security infrastructure, reinforcing public safety,” said Michael Adams, Program Executive for AI Solutions at Carahsoft.

“Through our collaboration with our reseller network, we aim to introduce the Visual AI Advisor to the Public Sector, offering customers a robust tool to effectively manage and secure their security infrastructure.”
