AI Becomes Israeli Lifeguard At The Beach

An Israeli startup Sightbit is using artificial intelligence (AI) tech to alert lifeguards when swimmers are in danger. "Sightbit is, in essence, an AI lifeguard - so our software acts as an additional lifeguard by flagging threats to swimmers," said co-founder Minna Shezaf. Special cameras are used to film the beach's swim areas and algorithms analyze the footage in real-time to flag incidences. "We display alerts on a monitor, which is stationed at the lifeguard tower. We also sound alarms when swimmers are in danger." (No Camels)
