BrainChip, a leading developer of software and hardware accelerated solutions for advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning applications, has entered into a strategic partnership with SoftCryptum to expand BrainChip’s AI-powered video analytics solutions to government agencies throughout France, Belgium, and Switzerland.
SoftCryptum sells security and data analytical solutions to government agencies around the globe that require video and image content analysis tools for CCTV footage.
Often recorded in low resolution, the recordings from such video surveillance systems are ideally suited to analysis using BrainChip’s unique technology.
Based on spiking neural networks, BrainChip’s video analytics solution has already been commissioned by several European government agencies to help speed up investigations.
Law enforcement agencies require a way to rapidly sift through terabytes of recorded video to identify and track complex characteristics of suspects and witnesses, including faces and patterns on clothing.
BrainChip Studio software enables instant training of many types of objects and patterns in the field, 20 times faster than a human operator.

Spiking neural networks (SNNs) are inherently lower power than traditional convolutional neural networks (CNNs), as they replace the math-intensive convolutions and back-propagation training methods with biologically inspired neuron functions and feed-forward training methodologies.

“The fact that BrainChip Studio is being successfully utilized by government agencies highlights the benefits it can offer to other security agencies,” commented Guillaume Tissot, Co-founder and President of SoftCryptum.
“We will use our growing customer base to further accelerate the adoption of BrainChip’s technology.”
“With a solid network of contacts in Law Enforcement, Defense and Intelligence Agencies, our company is well positioned to help promote, install and support BrainChip’s AI-powered software and hardware solutions.”
“BrainChip’s Director of EMEA Sales, Luis Coello, added: “We are delighted to enter into this reseller agreement with SoftCryptum.”
This new partnership strengthens the visibility of BrainChip Studio in European government agencies and improves operational and sales efficiency for our business.”
SoftCryptum has long-established relationships within many government entities, and we expect to see many new customers implement our technology as a result.”
