In Minority ReportA police unit preempted criminals and arrested them before they committed their crimes. Now, inspired by this story, a group of Spanish researchers have developed a system that… artificial intelligenceallows you to identify a possible attacker who is carrying a weapon and is about to use it.
Óscar Déniz Suárez, one of the participants in this team, explains to Blaze Trends that the image allows us to locate the location of the weapon. trigger an alarm So that a security guard can confirm whether they are facing a real threat. This is where artificial intelligence comes into play, which can remember objects and learn to recognize them.
Juan Antonio Álvarez, project coordinator, assures that artificial intelligence “analyzes all pixels” of the recorded image, recognizes the shape of the weapon and, thanks to previous training, gives a probability that what the attacker is holding is actually a weapon.
The surveillance cameras would therefore recognize the attacker and his weapon before he could commit a crime. They then raised an immediate alarm. This project is still in the development phase, but has already attracted interest from American companies.
