Real-Life RoboCop: Dubai’s Police Force is Getting Android Reinforcements Next Year

Standard

Dubai’s version of RoboCop is definitely not the first robot that entered law enforcement service. While it is the first one that can shake hands and salute like a proper police officer, several robots and AI systems have already been used and shown their mettle in real life situations (except in Russia where the police arrested a robot, instead).Examples include, among others, a robot used by Cleveland police to scan for bombs in the Republican Convention last July; urban combat robots in China; and an intruder-chasing security drone in Japan.As our robots become better and better, and with AI increasingly becoming more intelligent, it seems inevitable that these be put to good use. What’s better than having these serve and protect? Again, rather than fear what may be — that these turn against us — let’s first appreciate the help robots can provide for us.
