PODCAST: Tina D'Agostin, Alcatraz AI

Jan. 4, 2022
Alcatraz AI CEO Tina D'Agostin recently sat down with SBT to discuss the company's flagship touchless access control technology, the Rock, in the context of the larger physical security market for smart buildings heading into 2022.

In this startup edition of the Smart Buildings Technology podcast, SBT senior editor Matt Vincent sits down with Alcatraz AI CEO Tina D'Agostin to discuss the company's flagship "hardware as a service" access control technology, the Rock, which transforms building security by leveraging artificial intelligence and analytics capabilities to make powerful decisions at "the edge," where an individual's face becomes the key security credential. The proprietary technology is discussed in the context of the larger physical access control technology market for smart buildings heading into 2022.

In a recent article for SBT, D'Agostin notes how: "Almost all physical access control companies are now working to either create or integrate touchless authentication into their systems. Technology once seen as a 'nice-to-have' or complementary feature for a security system is now viewed as a 'must-have' in extraordinarily high demand. This is a technology that’s connected to everything from confirming access based on employment records, to serving as a way to permit or deny access based on vaccine requirements to enter a premise."

Smart Buildings Technology podcast episode 1, featuring Alcatraz AI CEO Tina D'Agostin, is also available through AppleGooglePodbeanSpotify, and Amazon.
