‘Smart’ CCTV Could Track Rioters

Yeah, in other words, ‘smart’ CCTV could track anyone.

I’d be shocked if it turned out to be the case that this wasn’t already operational for the British equivalent of MAIN CORE [2], assuming there is one (which I do).

Via: BBC [3]:

CCTV that can automatically monitor criminal behaviour and track suspects is being developed by UK scientists.

Researchers at Kingston University have created a system that uses artificial intelligence to recognise specific types of behaviour, such as someone holding a gun.

The technology is capable of following a person across multiple cameras.

Privacy campaigners warned that it might be used to target groups such as political protesters.

However, the developers insisted that their invention would allow police to focus on law breakers and erase images of innocent civilians.

The technology works by teaching a computer to recognise specific types of public behaviour, known as “trigger events”.
