Artificial Intelligence is a highly-advanced technology that generates a lot of buzz around anything it touches. And it couldn’t be any different with police body cameras. Some of the major police camera manufacturers have started investing artificial intelligence for body cameras in an attempt to facilitate police work. But some people have a different perspective on the matter.
With technology evolving at an exponential rate in the past decade and becoming a major part of people’s lives, the word “privacy” has been getting a lot of attention. The fact that police body cameras will be able to identify faces in real-time isn’t exactly pleasing everyone. No doubt privacy is an extremely important aspect of society. But it’s hard to measure to which extent when security is at stake. Artificial Intelligence is able to identify many other things aside from faces. That list includes violent or suspicious behavior, license plates, voices, as well as read lips, navigate maps and much more.
Needless to say, having artificial intelligence for body cameras and in-car cameras would greatly benefit officers on a daily basis. It’s only a matter of time until the technology is fully integrated with police cameras and systems, and only then we will get an accurate measurement of this technology’s efficacy.
