New surveillance cameras will use computer eyes to find 'pre crimes' by detecting suspicious behaviour and calling for guards
In its latest project BRS Labs is to install its devices on the transport system in San Francisco, which includes buses, trams and subways.
The company says will put them in 12 stations with up to 22 cameras in each, bringing the total number to 288.
The cameras will be able to track up to 150 people at a time in real time and will gradually build up a memory of suspicious behaviour to work out what is suspicious.

“They are putting similar things in here in the US, including things which bark out orders.”
They already have those kinds of cameras in the UK. If they see you doing something wrong or acting in a suspicious manner the officer operating the camera will give you a verbal warning to stop whatever you are doing. Using computers will now automate the process.
The UK will soon be issuing speeding tickets to drivers using satellites in space.
I expect to see this happen in the USA soon. Where the UK goes the USA soon follows.
If the pranksters are really good at street theatre, they might get some cool you tube moments. Get out the fake blood and rubber knives, let’s audition for the show.
But they will probably make ‘punking the camera’ a crime.
About time. Time to link this together with real time GPS databases.
Maybe a shutoff switch should be wired into all humans at birth??
The suspicious ones could just be turned if they start thinking wrong thoughts.
The world would be so much safer.
Chances are the street theater actors will not desist when the real guns show up.
What was comedy becomes tragedy.
There will be much call volume for the hoodie crowd.
Hopefully, the British blokes will figure out how to launch a burning tyre into space.
Only a matter of time until a roboguard warns a couple of German Shepherds or Great Danes to knock it off, then out come the cops.
I could just see Brits joining together to fundraise to have a satellite built (and have it launched by SpaceX) to Gatso the traffic satellite! ROFLMAO!!!
Who will tell the computer what is suspicious? Remember; Garbage in/Garbage out.
There are some people who consider San Fransisco to be part of the U.S., but I see your point.
All these futuristic electronic gizmos don’t frighten me. At the rate the ‘one’ is going there won’t be any power to run them and all will collapse. I’m looking forward to the big crash. Maybe it will put a stop to all the progressive plans for awhile.
Maybe to be more efficient we can have “pre convictions”.
Make everyone do a little time in childhood as credit against future jail time.
That way we can better control the size of the prison population. Smooth out the curve, so to say.

What do you think Public School is?
Or, I suppose you could say that’s for the crime of having been born.
I think those sticks have cattle prods on the ends of them. Kinda like the tasers of today!
If this ever comes to my area I will make it a priority to be arrested 365 consecutive days for absolutely nothing.
They have bobbies in San Francisco?
That’s sort of what I thought. Somehow robots with long sticks seem scarier than ones with taser guns, however. This reminds me of something, it’s not a quote it’s a lyric:
You think you’ve private lives, think nothing of the kind. There is no true escape, I’m watching all the time. I’m made of metal. My circuits gleam. I am perpetual. I keep the country clean.
The discussion veered off into what Britain is doing now.
This sounds like it’s way more ambitious than the capabilities of the equipment available. Computer vision even in advanced military applications is still very crude. The brain is vastly underestimated, IMHO. It works better to hire a grunt at $16 an hour to sit and stare at the screen and that’s probably what this thing will turn out to be, the computer vision claims notwithstanding.
