Chile Pioneers A.I.-Powered Public Safety System

(MENAFN- The Rio Times) Chile has embarked on an ambitious project to weave artificial intelligence into the fabric of its public safety measures.

The Integrated System of Teleprotection (Sitia) marries AI with an array of cameras and sensors across the country. It aims to improve public safety nationally and bolster criminal investigations.

This initiative has a broad base, linking the municipal, governmental, and private sectors.

These networks utilize AI to process and analyze data, enhancing the response to criminal activities and public safety threats.

For instance, the system excels at locating stolen vehicles and identifying individuals associated with criminal activities through advanced facial recognition and license plate scanning.

Currently, Sitia operates a pilot in 14 high-risk municipalities in the Metropolitan Region. This phase tests its real-world applicability and ensures the technology upholds privacy while contributing to safety.

Collaboration is at the core of this endeavor. A mix of public agencies, private entities, and academic institutions are working together.

This cooperation highlights the potential of collective efforts to address complex societal issues. Chile is not just focusing on localized measures but also framing a national AI policy.

Led by the Ministry of Science, this policy fosters AI integration across various sectors, establishing Chile as a leader in technological adaptation for public welfare.

Sitia is more than a security measure; it is a testament to Chile 's proactive stance on using technology to enhance urban life and safety.

This approach not only aims to mitigate immediate threats but also serves as a model for other nations on the power of technology in governance and public security.
