The Abu Dhabi Police will soon use ‘smart glasses’ or augmented virtual reality glasses to catch criminals. Criminals or wanted persons hiding from authorities by blending in the crowd should better watch out. The smart glasses have a micro-camera that will use artificial intelligence to automatically scan hundreds of faces in a crowd and will send notification to authorities when it comes across a wanted person. The smart glasses is being showcased at the ongoing Gitex Technology Week in Dubai
The database is ready and the technology is still being fine-tuned which eventually can also be used to scan pictures on social media. There is really a powerful potential for artificial intelligence to improve our operations which in turn helps create safer communities. The futuristic police tool, which is slightly bigger and wider than ordinary motorcycle goggles, will also be used on the roads to identify and stop illegal vehicles.
