IT & Industries Minister KTR shared his thoughts on ‘AI on the Street: Managing Trust in the Public Square’ at a panel discussion at World Economic Forum in Davos.
Minister KTR stated that there were major challenges in using technologies like Facial Recognition coupled with AI. Minister mentioned that Facial Recognition has reduced the dependency on physical resources and time taken to find criminals and missing people. Hence with the right regulatory outreach, AI makes it far easier for the police to support citizens with their needs.
Prominent members who were part of the panel discussion included Takayuki Morita, President, Chief Executive Officer and Representative Director, NEC, Japan, Angie Odour Lungati, Executive Director Ushahidi, South Africa, and Coen van Oostrom, CEO & Founder of Edge
