Misfit will provide solutions for our machine learning search capability by increasing the accuracy, competence and pace of processing images and videos. This effort allows customers to get additional insight from video, photos and audio. Additionally, it will improve training, operations and community engagement. Axon AI will give agencies the capability to segregate and scrutinize the most significant seconds of footage from the loads of data.
