There are many companies working on this type of technology at the moment. We made ours in 2018, and Chad visited my house in January 2019 to film most of this. We didn't post it for various reasons, but decided now might be a good time. The fidelity of the inference is a function of how you train it.... so obviously the more data points you provide, the better it will perform. This particular type of machine learning is known as object detection, with the computation being performed by a deep neural network "on the edge". The video stream is processed locally and no internet is needed to find the object in real time. If you're working on something similar or could use this technology in your systems and would like to collaborate....

Do me a favor and PLEASE CONSIDER SHARING THIS VIDEO. I'm a bit worried it won't be distributed due to images in the video and the topic in general.... but I believe this is a positive thing and it's something people on both sides of the gun debate can get behind. I've been talking to people about this type of technology and in an upcoming video I will explain how this is simply one component in a much larger suite of tools which can be used. Are there flaws in this method? Absolutely. Is it possible to spoof a system like this? Yes... this could be easily tricked.... but would be perps would have to take the time to worry about it focus on tricking it. I personally think the main benefit is providing real time situational awareness. Another limitation is that it would identify toy guns as real guns and send a notification to authorities. The purpose of this video is to start the discussion because systems like this are frankly already here and in use. We don't claim to have all the answers, but we decided to use our engineering skills to try to make a positive step. We've found support amongst both sides of the gun debate, and in today's political climate that alone feels like a step in the right direction.

If you are in an area with a surveillance camera, you probably shouldn't have your gun drawn. But I think an issue might arise if a shooter starts shooting people and a gun owner retaliates, the system might flag them both as shooters and the first responders could end up killing them both.

In my opinion, the AI should only get the information people are getting: sound, video and, if tech exists, scent and tactile. Invisible waves are for cases where people know that such technology is used to screen them OR it should be put for in-depth consideration. Are retail store anti-steal systems fine? Not a straight answer and, perhaps, even dependant on small details of realization. I hope they are fine, though :)

That's cool and all, but think about this: in Germany almost nobody has guns (only police officers) and there are barely any school shootings (according to wikipedia 13 in the last 20 years). But in america it seems to be a constant threat all over the country. I just think nobody should be able to end a life by pulling a trigger.

I’m a engineer as well and guns are amazing! And some of the technology that is used even from the earliest days of guns are absolutely amazing it is crazy how every country except for America has a great design I can’t think of one American made gun except for the invention of the 1911. Very few guns or manufacturers here in the United States are any good at all that’s why most of our military uses stuff from out of state besides the M-16

Alright this is great, but if he has the gun out he’s already killed people or is killing people, while the police are minutes away. I’d say detecting hidden guns in schools via metal detectors, and this system that can detect holstered guns in schools is still a good way to go about it while preserving human life by being proactive, not reactive.

Don't mean to be a " Fly in the ointment ", and I'm guessing this is very early work, but if you're talking " Active Shooter " scenario's, by the time a gun is detected, wouldn't it already be to late ? Who are you notifying ? Security personnel on site ? Local police ? Which travels faster, a text message thru a cellular system, or the sound of shots fired, echoing through the hall's of a building ? And if you can believe what we're told, is detecting a long gun out of the question because they are so obvious ? Perhaps we should change how we look at the entrances to buildings that seem to give easy access, with little to no intervention ! And ask ourselves too, are these random acts, or acts of individuals pursuing an agenda ?

So never having tried this method so curious for a educated answer really... Would it be simpler to create a 3d model of gun and a hand to help create your dataset, various angles, variious guns, various quality/zoom, blur ect... and even other objects , the phone for instance? then have a model that can semi auto assist you train from real video sorted by confidence for evaluation.

Guns are the best thing in the world besides family and Trump
Gun violence in the United States has very little to do with guns. If it were possible to eliminate ALL guns in this country, and change nothing else, we would use different methods of murdering one another. People do not pick up a gun and start shooting people just because they have a gun available to them. That does not make sense. The Dalai Lama one of the few people left on Earth whom I still hold in high regard because of his stance in support of nonviolence has said “you do not have a gun problem in this country you have a social problem.” And that social problem is a direct effect of ignorance and poor leadership.
Framwinkle Silvermaple
I think this might be okay in a place like a school, or a government building, but not just out in the general public. We're already being watched by too many cameras. Maybe this software could be integrated into existing security systems, but I wouldn't want a whole new system just for this.

Talking about gun safety is only smart and is needed. But no person educated in factual America history debates gun *ownership*. The Constitution's words have not changed since penned. We have the same rights George Washington did. Only people not understanding/respecting the Bill of Rights/Constitution (or they are uneducated using only emotion) debate the issue of gun *ownership*. No respect for the Constitution, according to Ben Franklin, makes a person unworthy of the rights the Constitution gives. Gun violence developed when the public education system was taken over by the leftist mindset. Kids were taught they are animals only and not responsible for their own actions. They are taught an unwanted baby is fine to murder and that the only people saying its murder are religious nutcases. Devaluing human life and increasing entertainment being bloody/gory/violent and glorifying immoral standards in general has been around now for 50 years including this type of mindset being programmed into children during their most impressionable years. And people wonder why there are so many more gun violence problems.Want to limit gun violence? Bring back the moral mindset as the prevalent one in the US as it once was. Problem solved.

I would really like to see this develop and the manner in which it is used. It could easily be a great thing or a terrible thing depending on context. I would also love to see some of the concealed firearm detectors and ways all of these systems could be overcome. It's a man-made technology so it will have limitations, so it would be very interesting to see what those would become. I have a feeling things like the covert briefcases used for MP5s and M10/11s will become far more prevalent with the implementation of these detectors.

Not being from the US I don't have extensive first hand experience of the culture but I do feel like holding onto every scrap of freedom at the expense of people's safety is a little odd to say the least.

@SmarterEveryDay so as you say, privacy is very important but also is safety, sadly not everyone respects everyone to the point where this type of invasive systems are not needed, you should be able to buy a gun if you pass a mental test (not the best idea probably) but because they are so easily obtained, that makes harder for security and safety measures to be implemented, love your tech btw and I hope we can reach a point where we mature to the idea of respect to both the guns and the people.

If i could, my aproach would be: After get the 'Gun Detected Alarm', i would mark the person holding it as the target and my hipothetical security solution would include a floor plan of the building, with cameras in almost all of the areas. So my software would be capable to point everywhere the maked person is, including its position in a heat map like. This information would be available in a QR code (1 QR code for each building), placed in strategic places everywhere on the building, including outside, for police teams also. Thank you. Sorry for the English. I'm improving it. Cheers, from Brazil.

Hello Destin, I watch your videos from time to time and think they are excellent in most cases. I usually don't write any comments, but this video has disturbed me. Therefore I would like to give you the opinion of an outsider. I am a European, also an engineer, and as a European, I don't have a weapon, of course, but I had had contact with it during my military service. I think that video is not from an engineer's point of view, it is from a gun owner's point of view. Why is that? An engineer would not try to mitigate the problem right at the end but would ask himself where the problem comes from and eliminate it at the root. Developing a system that can detect pulled weapons at close range is a bit like not constructing an airplane safely but equipping the passengers with parachutes. However, this comparison is still misleading because the parachutes would be even better than this system. At least they would work to a limited extent. As an engineer, I find ten possibilities in under 1min that the system is not detecting my gun. Therefore it would be only alibi security -so, Well meant is not well done. If you want to do something against gun violence, you don't have to start with the already pulled out gun, e.g., in a school, but in the heads of the people. As a society, you have to ask yourself what kind of "weapons" we need. You certainly need a knife to prepare your food. But I haven't had any use for a weapon for the last 36 years. Of course, you can always argue that you need guns to protect yourself. But also criminals know what to expect from someone and can, therefore, "equip themselves better" - a typical escalation spiral. Together with all the accidents and irrational acts, one comes to the death numbers as they are in the US. Therefore I conclude, I think for the first time, that this video does not correspond to the channel "Smarter ...". It would be smart to explain to the almost 8 million followers why the possession of weapons, does not lead to more security and to convince them - by setting a good example - to leave their guns behind.

In 2008 I had to use my gun in self defense. If I didn't have it, I would be dead. Just like the 500,000 to 3 million Americans who use guns everyday to defend themselves. Stop trying to strip people of their rights.
Thank you. Couldn't agree more with that.
