A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11887223B2) outlines a computer-implemented method for monitoring and analyzing events in a monitored area. The method involves maintaining historical data related to abnormal events, detecting events using sensor data, determining the confidence level of an event matching a specific type without additional sensor data, and assigning a weight to the event based on user input. If the confidence level meets a threshold, monitoring continues, and a graphical representation of events is generated based on assigned weights. The system also includes anonymizing monitoring data and determining historical data based on patterns of activity and individuals associated with the monitored area.

Furthermore, the patent describes a system and a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium implementing the method outlined above. The system includes a processor and storage device to perform operations such as maintaining historical data, detecting events, determining confidence levels and weights, generating graphical representations, and transmitting data to user devices. The non-transitory computer-readable storage medium contains instructions for executing the method, including determining associated persons, anonymizing data, assigning weights based on confidence levels, and excluding patterns of activity that do not meet confidence level thresholds. This innovative approach aims to enhance event monitoring and analysis in various monitored areas, providing a comprehensive system for efficient data processing and visualization.
