The humanoid version of a policeman, however, would not replace any human resources, rather, it can be used as the first contact point and a tool to collect the required data with which they can improve the overall service quality and performance.
"With the recent developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI), we are seeing the advent of intelligent robots that can perform tasks such as information assistance, physical assistance, surveillance and so forth. With AI and a range of sensors collecting information of the environment, KP-bot is able to work alongside human beings seamlessly," Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Manoj Abraham said on the occasion.
