Britain has developed a new way of catching thieves. If anyone disappears from the shopping mall or super market here, he will be caught. Actually, in places like UK shopping malls and super markets, cameras with artificial intelligence technology equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) have now been installed. These cameras identify people who steal items kept in these places. Not only this, this technique also identifies people wearing masks.
In the UK, Startup Facewatch Company constantly monitored people who sneak away with razors, perfumes, nappies or other small items in their pockets or purses. After this, the company made a list of such people and has given it to all the big and small shops and shopping malls of Britain.
As soon as such people enter the shopping mall or super market, the Facial Recognition Technology equipped with Artificial Intelligence will send an alert message to the shop’s employees on the mobile app and it will tell that the person who had stolen the goods from the same shop came back again is.
This technology has helped UK shoppers to a great extent. They are finding it easy to identify the thieves in the shop. Also, it gives shoppers time to decide how to deal with such people. On being caught, the thieves are first asked to leave the shop or mall peacefully. However, in many cases such people also attack shopkeepers or mall operators. In such a situation, there is also the need to call the police.
A co-operative store spokesman said that violence in cases involving theft of goods from shops has increased by 80% in the last years. Over 3.40 lakh cases of theft of goods are reported from shops in Britain every year, but now with the help of this technology, more than 3000 cases of goods theft from shops have been prevented in 18 months.
