AI-Powered Dummies To Help Fight Crimes In Bengaluru

As stated by Bhaskar Rao, the Police Commissioner of Bengaluru, the Police force would have cameras fixed on mannequins with facial recognition software

Bengaluru has long been India’s top tech city and recently, it has taken advantage of this to fight crime.

As stated by Bhaskar Rao, the city’s Police Commissioner, the Police force would have cameras fixed on mannequins that were equipped with facial recognition software. What these mannequins will do is to fine drunk drivers, spot traffic offenders, and fight crime.

However, the mannequins will not stand in a particular place but operate in a hide-and-seek mode.

According to Rao, the AI will count the number of violations one has committed, estimate the fine, track down the culprit, and tip off the police so that they have everything they need to do their job.

He said that the system worked like this. Imagine a drunk driver spotted driving on M.G. Road in the city center. He or she would be identified by the AI even if the mannequin was standing at a junction far away from the violator. With facial recognition, the mannequin would send the information to the control room so that further actions could be done.

Rao was quite optimistic about the future of using AI to assist the Police force of Bengaluru. He even said that the sky was the limit for the applications of this technology.

The Commissioner also emphasized that since Bengaluru was the place where tech giants like Microsoft, Walmart, and Google has their offices and R&D centers, and top tech universities like the Indian Institute of Science located, the city is the place for innovation and invention.

Dubbed Indian Silicon Valley, Bengaluru has everything it needs to be the pioneer in applying technology. If the practice shows good results in this city, it might be brought to others as well.

The Commissioner is now looking for further customizations for the mannequins to better match the need of the police force.
