Staqu has built an Android-based software platform that will enable police agencies to identify potential threats like criminals and terrorists through smart glasses in real time. Staqu co-founder Atul Rai told ETtech that this platform is an extension of its criminal registration and search system ABHED (Artificial intelligence Based Human Efface Detection) that was launched in May last year and will also support facial and speech recognition.
Now Staqu announced AI-powered Smart Glass which is capable of both, speech and image recognition. It meant to help in the personal security to identify potential threats to the civil society, such as criminals, intruders or terrorists, lurking around or amidst us.
According to the company, the Glasses will work even in wild scenarios as it fuses together speech and image recognition to utilize a hybrid identification technology and uniquely identify anyone.
