Getting Back To Work? Kogniz Health AI Platform Helps Create Safer Workplaces


As the COVID-19 pandemic stretches on, many people wonder how to go back to work and keep themselves safe and healthy at the same time at their workplaces. To help with the situation, Kogniz has launched the AI-based Health Response Platform — the automated system that offers no-contact, high-volume temperature screening, contact tracing, social distancing enforcement, mask detection, and more.

“Companies are extremely cautious and concerned as they plan to reopen. Employees should expect significant changes, including wearing masks, greater distances between desks, and rotating office time,” quipped Daniel Putterman, Co-founder and Co-CEO, Kogniz. “Powerful yet unobtrusive technology like ours provides an additional layer of protection that will make the return to work safer and healthier for everyone.”

Highlights: Kogniz Health Response Platform

  • No-contact, multi-person, real-time temperature monitoring. The platform continuously measures body temperatures of large groups of people entering a building from up to sixteen feet away and provides accurate results even when it is cold or hot outside.
  • Social distancing enforcement. An optional extension enables existing surveillance cameras powered by the Kogniz Health Response Platform to send alerts to designated personnel when too many people are in a space, enabling organizations to swiftly enforce social distancing protocols.
  • Contact exposure detection. An optional extension enables existing surveillance cameras powered by the Kogniz Health Response Platform to identify those who come into contact with people displaying symptoms.
    Mask detection. Ensures that employees and guests follow protective gear policies.
  • Minimal hardware. Small, user-friendly footprints and flexible topologies enable most companies to install and begin using the platform in ten minutes or less.

Prior to launching the Kogniz Health Response Platform, the Kogniz AI researchers spent years developing the detection algorithms and customizable rules that form the nexus of the Kogniz platform, deploying the resulting Kogniz Security Platform in Fortune 500 security installations around the world.

Those algorithms and intellectual property enabled the Kogniz team to quickly extend their security solution to the Kogniz Health Platform, the company said.
