Microsoft Begins Using AI to Identify Smokers at the Pumps

Artificial intelligence is continually creeping into aspects of our everyday life, including at some gas stations. Microsoft has begun working with Shell to identify people smoking at the pumps using their Azure IoT Edge cloud intelligence.

With onsite video cameras and a device in the station running Microsoft Azure IoT Edge, retailers can identify dangerous behaviours through AI: people lighting up cigarettes, improper fuelling, theft, reckless driving, violence.

Once the deep learning solution has identified an issue, the system will alert employees, so they can quickly respond and eliminate potential problems.

The two Shell sites with this program are in Thailand and Singapore.
