The news: Evolv Technology thinks its AI can help stem the epidemic of mass shootings in public spaces.
How we got here: The US has a major mass shooting problem with high casualties, occurring in churches, schools, and grocery stores.
False positives: Although Evolv’s AI scanners are a low-profile way to detect firearms, inaccuracies could lead to chaotic scenes in busy places.
Not a panacea: Despite the false positives, AI detection systems can learn to more accurately identify weapons over time and potentially ferret out attempts at evasion, such as someone modifying a gun’s shape.
