Artificial intelligence is expanding in the field of security. China is leading the development of this technology now by applying it to a police station, where it wants the center to be managed without people.
China it is a superpower in the development of robotics and technological innovation, but in addition, it is also a country where security is taken to the maximum by the government, and there are thousands of cameras that control everything the traffic, the streets and the citizens, who are observed and recorded in their day to day.
Through a network system that connects 20 million cameras placed in cities, allow to recognize, practically, all the data of each of the citizens from that country to the smallest detail through facial recognition and machine learning. The system is known as Sky Net and it also identifies vehicles by their make, color or license plate. This whole system is connected to the police database which at any time can access the information accurately.
In this scenario, the Asian country expects to have a police station by 2020, where there are no humans to carry out the different procedures, since this center will be run by artificial intelligence.
In principle, it will take care of office formalities or solve car-related issues: test drivers using a simulator, carry out all kinds of searches and paperwork through facial recognition technology developed by Tencent.
Robots have burst into the technological world, and for a long time there have been several tasks and positions for which they have been developed or tested.
We were already talking about a robot waiter in a hotel developed by Panasonic or robots journalists who occupied a newsroom. But they’re just tests, though, will they ever occupy them?
Now China goes further developing a new profession. There are still many questions about how the police station will work and whether it will expand the system throughout the country.
Change must be a new opportunity
While talking about fourth revolution with the arrival of new machines, some doubts arise as to what their impact on the labour market and economic growth will be in the long term. The automation of work will have direct and indirect consequences on the different positions to be filled.
It is necessary that the professionals of the future develop new skills in the process of digitalization and artificial intelligence, a change that society must be prepared to manage..
