POLICE BODY CAMS HAVE REAL-TIME FACE RECOGNITION (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by Theresa @, Friday, February 17, 2017, 09:47

I also believe that FaceBook has some kind of facial recognition software as well. I noticed this when I used to post photos of family and friends. FaceBook would TAG THEM with their proper first and last names before I even got a chance to tag them myself.

==========================

The police body camera industry is the latest to jump on the artificial intelligence bandwagon, bringing new powers and privacy concerns to a controversial technology bolstered by the need to hold police accountable after numerous high-profile killings of unarmed black citizens. Now, that tech is about to get smarter.

Last week, Taser, the stun gun company that has recently become an industry leader in body-mounted cameras, announced the creation of its own in-house artificial intelligence division. The new unit will utilize the company’s acquisition of two AI-focused firms: Dextro, a New York-based computer vision startup, and Misfit, another computer vision company previously owned by the watch manufacturer Fossil. Taser says the newly formed division will develop AI-powered tech specifically aimed at law enforcement, using automation and machine learning algorithms to let cops search for people and objects in video footage captured by on-body camera systems.

Moreover, the move suggests that body-worn cameras, which are already being used by police departments in many major cities, could soon become powerful surveillance tools capable of identifying different objects, events, and people encountered by officers on the street — both retroactively and in real time.AI-Powered Body Cams Give Cops The Power To Google Everything They See.
