At the Toshiba Co-creation Center “Creative Circuit(*1),” which opened last February as a base for co-creation activities in the Toshiba Group, Toshiba has implemented functions using the company’s latest video recognition AI to create new value with co-creation partners through experiencing the latest technology.
As a first step, Toshiba has implemented four functions at Creative Circuit: crowding detection, suspicious behavior detection, unnatural posture detection, and individual recognition. By allowing co-creation partners within and outside of the Toshiba Group to experience AI technology, Toshiba will work with its co-creation partners to create new value from AI technologies, leading to earlier social implementation of Toshiba AI.
Furthermore, to make Creative Circuit a safer, more secure, and more creative environment during the COVID-19 epidemic, the company has developed a communication-activity monitoring system that uses a crowding detection function and is operated within Creative Circuit. This system detects the state of crowding while also calculating and displaying communication activity levels to support active communication while preventing excessive crowding, thereby increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of co-creation activities.
Toshiba plans to continue introducing new AI functions at Creative Circuit, which will also be used as a base for value creation using AI technology with its co-creation partners, contributing to the creation of innovative solutions for solving social issues and realizing a sustainable society.
