ZeroEyes, the creators of an artificial intelligence-based gun detection video analytics platform, announced that it has been selected for the Lloyd’s Lab Accelerator program. The company was accepted following a selection process evaluating 270 applicants from more than 33 countries.

During the ten-week Lloyd’s Lab program, ZeroEyes will work with Lloyd’s and its insurance network to help develop parametric insurance policies for gun-related violence to be offered to schools and commercial entities.

“ZeroEyes is dedicated to helping its customers proactively prepare for gun-related threats,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes, in a company press release. “Lloyd’s Lab’s Accelerator program offers us the opportunity to innovate insurance policies, just as we have transformed gun detection. We are honored to be selected for the program and look forward to future partnership opportunities with leading insurance players.”

ZeroEyes’ AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness software layers onto existing digital security cameras. If a gun is identified, images are instantly shared with the ZeroEyes Operations Center (ZOC), staffed constantly by specially trained U.S. military and law enforcement veterans.

If these experts determine that the threat is valid, they dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence — including visual description, gun type, and last known location — to local law enforcement as quickly as three-to-five seconds from detection, the release said.

Founded by Navy SEALs, Special Operations military veterans, and elite technologists, ZeroEyes dispatches real-time actionable intelligence about the illegal brandishing of a gun near or in an occupied area or building to local staff and law enforcement with an image of the shooter(s) and location of the threat.

The ZeroEyes team also provides consulting, installation assistance and practice drills for active shooter events to enhance safety at schools, corporate and government facilities. Headquartered in the Greater Philadelphia area, the company’s gun detection solution has been adopted by the US Department of Defense, public K-12 school districts, colleges/universities, healthcare facilities, commercial property groups, manufacturing plants, Fortune 500 corporate campuses, shopping malls, big-box retail stores and more.
