The CCTV That Hears you Coming

RUN on tip-toes:

British scientists are developing technology that will enable CCTV cameras to “hear” a crime taking place and spin round to capture it on film.

Researchers are working on artificial intelligence software that can recognise sounds such as breaking glass, shouting or crowds gathering, and prompt a camera to swing towards the noise in 300 milliseconds – the same time it would take a person to turn their head if they heard someone scream. The software may eventually be able to identify words that suggest a crime is being committed.

There is no escape for this island race…
