RoboCop in Dubai?

Taken from: Dubai Media Office

Is it the future already? Could be…

Dubai security forces announced during GISEC (Gulf Information Security Expo), that ended just 2 days ago, UAE’s first police robot. According to an article published by Gulf News, not more than 2 weeks ago, robots will eventually make up 25 percent of the police force by 2030.

Just to be clear, the robot has an AI that helps it operate, and is not controlled from a distance. The new police robot is 170 cm tall and weighs about 100 kg (The MENA tech).

Suddenly I find myself remembering Will Smith’s film “I, Robot”…

The robot will be connected to a database that should provide the police officer with all information needed about any individual. The robot is also said to be capable of studying buildings and identifying points of entry/exits.

This is an interesting addition to Dubai’s security forces, should be really fun to see this robot in action.

Google Assistant and Siri: An AI death match

During the first day of Google IO, Google announced that it’s launching the Google Assistant on iOS.

The assistant is available on iOS (USA only for now) as an application that will be able to perform certain tasks, as it does on Android, but with some exceptions to certain OS functions. That means you will be able to make calls, send messages, and play songs, but not set any alarms.

Users have to open the Google Assistant app to activate it, as the home button can not be remapped. Users can also add a widget to make the launching of the Google Assistant faster and easier.
