In collaboration with Taito City Tourism Board, Spectee's patented technology will assist the security management of the Sumida River Fireworks Festival 2017, one of the largest and most famous fireworks festivals of Tokyo. Our image analysis and natural-language processing AI technology is going to examine real-time SNS data to surveil potential happenings during the festival such as accidents, traffics and weather changes. We are proud to be the pioneer to integrate SNS data with security control through AI technology for the first time ever in the history of Japan.
