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.
