“With the installation of such cameras, catching those indulging in anti-social acts will become simpler,” the Police Commissioner said. Artificial Intelligence has emerged as one of the most widely used technology this year. While it is making its way to consumer devices in the form of voice assistant and agents. The real impact has been in the area like facial recognition. There have already been mass deployment of cameras and sensors to recognize faces of citizens in markets like China.
