Japanese, Indian tech ventures team on AI cameras

ExaIntelligence, Efftronics target aspiring Indian smart cities

AKIRA HAYAKAWA, Nikkei staff writer

MUMBAI -- Japanese AI startup ExaIntelligence has partnered with Indian "internet of things" technology developer Efftronics Systems to create AI-equipped surveillance cameras and other products for such applications as traffic management and crime prevention.

The cameras are to be installed along roads or in buildings, where they can use big-data analysis to check license plates or detect suspicious people. ExaIntelligence and Efftronics aim to roll out the cameras next spring and market them to Indian municipalities looking to turn themselves into smart cities.

This follows a deal signed by ExaIntelligence in April to conduct joint artificial intelligence research with India's Andhra University and organizations affiliated with state governments.

Founded last year by Makoto Haruta, a former chairman of Japanese game developer DeNA, ExaIntelligence has worked on AI development for major companies, including in the auto industry. It operates a research and development center in Kyoto.
