USPA Nationwide Security announced the launch of its Artificial Intelligence Security Training Program, which is being rolled out in the coming week to train the 5,000+ security contractors who offer services for the international security conglomerate.
After about 11 months of research and development, USPA’s CEO, Dan Manning, said that the AI, though time-consuming and costly to develop, will save the firm millions of dollars over the next decade and leave no carbon footprint. He added that training security contractors with their new technology allow the trainees to learn at their own pace and convenience anywhere throughout the world.
The first course by USPA is their Fire Watch In-Service Level 1 Series. It consists of two hours of lessons delivered by fully responsive AI instructors. The AI can sense sound, movement and even read lips to generate a response by activating the student’s camera and microphone.
USPA’s machine-learning technology can train thousands of security officers simultaneously. This task traditionally required human cognition, flights, hotels, and a lot of time. By combining components from computer, cognitive science, linguistics, psychology, neuroscience, and mathematics, the AI teaches, learns, and responds in a human-like manner.
With the assistance of former CEO Michael Evans and a security consultant, the research and development section at USPA recently launched its Autonomous Security Technology Division (drones that operate without human direction).
According to Wall Street Journal, USPA Nationwide Security targets net zero carbon emissions by 2023. The security firm said the new AI training is a giant leap forward regarding its net zero emission promise.
