Al­go­rithm Catches Crims

Science Illustrated - - SCIENCE UPDATE -

TECH­NOL­OGY The elec­tron­ics gi­ant Mo­torola and the smaller com­pany Neu­rala have joined forces to de­velop small and smart cam­eras, which can quickly scan and de­tect spe­cific per­sons in huge groups of peo­ple.

Neu­rala's patented soft­ware works in even very small com­put­ers. The tech­nol­ogy will make it pos­si­ble to use ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence in a small cam­era, for ex­am­ple, which a po­lice­man can wear in his uni­form. The two com­pa­nies have worked to­gether to de­velop a cam­era, which via AI, can scan hun­dreds of faces in a large group of peo­ple, and in less than a sec­ond can com­pare the scans with po­lice data­bases of crim­i­nals or miss­ing chil­dren.

The more faces the ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence scans, the faster it can point out a crim­i­nal.
