Motion-based security systems are known for their high rate of false positives from events such as passing animals and the wind rustling nearby trees. It’s a use case ripe for AI, which can use computer vision and inference to weed out both false positives and false negatives. The result is more-accurate detection that increases profits by reducing the expenses associated with making in-person security checks.
How do you maintain backward compatibility with userspace apps in the Linux kernel? Most maintainers rely on code review and pushing changes out for testing. But with experienced reviewers and testing farms in short supply, it can be helpful to add automated tooling at build time to check for compatibility.
