By 2030 the city wants 25% of its police to be robots.
Starting tomorrow the robot will patrol tourist attractions and Dubai’s malls, its wheels and cameras give it the ability to independently navigate and map the insides of buildings.
RoboCop is here
Dubai has said that it wants to recruit (build) enough robots to make up 25% of its police force by 2030.
So after a trial period with this first bot, the city says it will start placing orders for more.
There’s still a long way to go before these Police Robots can fully match the abilities of a human police officer, whether that’s chasing down a criminal or disarming someone with a knife.
And Dubai has been clear, their Police Robots will never be armed.
But this first generation, which was built with help from Google and IBM Watson, certainly shows promise.
