How AI can help with public safety?


There has been a lot of talk regarding the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in public safety, and although there are many concerns, the benefit of what AI can deliver is quite extensive.

Accenture has released a video talking about a responsible AI in public safety and some of the areas where AI can make the biggest contribution to public safety.

Hosted by James Slessor, Managing Director for Public Safety at Accenture, the video talks about the key feature of AI, which is the ability to process huge volumes of data, as well as extract insights and identify patterns and actions, something that could not be done by a public safety officer or other staff.

Described as an ability to see the unseeable, AI has the ability to automatically identify faces, objects, movements and other features, giving alerts or other responses, making it highly suitable for public safety.

AI is also immune to mundane tasks, which means it can do repetitive and procedural activities much faster than humans and it won’t get bored or be prone to mistakes that come from such tasks.

The AI is also suitable for policing the virtual world, something that has become quite important these days as public safety has switched from physical to virtual space as well.
