Educational Institutions Utilize Artificial Intelligence to Detect Firearms Amid Push for State Funding by Companies

Kansas is considering grants of up to $5 million for schools to install surveillance cameras with artificial intelligence that can detect individuals with guns. Only one company fits all the criteria for these grants, ZeroEyes. The bill highlights the multibillion-dollar school security industry and how some companies are influencing lawmakers to incorporate their solutions into state laws. While the technology is praised, there are concerns about the specificity of the bill favoring only one company. Some states are opting for grant programs to fund this technology, which can be costly. Other companies, like Omnilert, are also offering similar services but lack the necessary patents and designations.
