Synapse AI enhances scans

10 January 2019

US start-up Synapse Technology will use USD6 million in recent seed funding to enhance its artificial intelligence (AI) add-on for security scanning. Its system can interface with existing x-ray equipment.

Synapse AI is being piloted at Tokyo Narita, where the enhanced scanners are detecting 14% more prohibited items. Synapse says that while the AI algorithms detect with greater accuracy and speed than the human brain, and do not tire, the system is intended to ease the cognitive burden on operators rather than replace them.
