Automatic Handgun Detection via Machine Learning

The latest Step into an OCP-approved Ed-209-compatible Future: Automatic Handgun Detection Alarm in Videos Using Deep Learning (PDF). Usage Guide: In case of False Positives, say „It's just a Glitch“. In case of False Negatives: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. (via AlexJC)

Current surveillance and control systems still require human supervision and intervention. This work presents a novel automatic handgun detection system in videos appropriate for both, surveillance and control purposes. We reformulate this detection problem into the problem of minimizing false positives and solve it by building the key training data-set guided by the results of a deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) classifier, then assessing the best classification model under two approaches, the sliding window approach and region proposal approach.

The most promising results are obtained by Faster R-CNN based model trained on our new database. The best detector show a high potential even in low quality youtube videos and provides satisfactory results as automatic alarm system. Among 30 scenes, it successfully activates the alarm after five successive true positives in less than 0.2 seconds, in 27 scenes. We also define a new metric, Alarm Activation per Interval (AApI), to assess the performance of a detection model as an automatic detection system in videos.
