Indian Railways takes big step to enhance security! Bengaluru, Manmad and Bhusawal railway stations have been provided with facial recognition technology backed by artificial intelligence. This has been done to identify and nab criminals. According to a PTI report, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) wants to identify criminals who may be roaming at railway stations by linking the facial recognition system with the existing databases such as Criminal Tracking Network and systems.
Therefore, the RPF command centre will be alerted by the real-time face recognition software of any known offenders. Once the testing of the facial recognition system is done, the technology will be implemented across the Indian Railways network.
