Business need
In an interconnected world, organizations increasingly use Internet of Things sensors to keep track of data in real time. But what if you need to monitor something that you can’t put a sensor on?

BlueChasm uses cognitive and cloud data services to analyze video data streams and recognize specific objects, themes, or events – converting a simple video camera into an intelligent analytics tool.

BlueChasm’s solutions are unlocking new opportunities to monitor things that were previously unmonitorable – eliminating the need for human inspections and saving hours of tedious manual video review.
