AI and Its Development
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the latest technology, a branch of computer science originally aimed to create machines with some intelligence to replicate human labor. These machines were specially designed to perform basic human functions mechanically and repetitively with 100% precision but do not suffer from fatigue wherein human endeavor is fraught with errors, more so when done repetitively. These are highly useful and can be designed to perform menial jobs which are hazardous and risky like Bomb disposal, mine lifting or even operating in NBC contaminated areas.
With the advancement in computing technology and information processing speed, AI has taken giant leaps in recent years and started disrupting the complete landscape of our public and personal lives, offers an alternative to the human efforts with smart machines. We have never seen human absence in whatever we did yesterday, but today at many places we find machines with artificial intelligence are making trained labor redundant. If the cars can be without drivers, airports can be run without human intervention or planes could be flown without pilots, then it is very much possible to replicate a Security Guard by some human look-alike robots which will be doing all the jobs. It can be used as a well-trained guard on the gate or on the Watch Tower or doing perimeter patrol which can even do fire-fighting as it can be designed to walk through the smoke and help in evacuation and so on.
It also must be brought here that although AI has started making disruptions in a big way in many commercial activities especially in a field where human labor is challenged due to emotions, security, fatigue, and requirement of precision. It is still opaque, probably too early to say or predict the actual usage of AI in Security business. but it is sure that present security systems will be replaced by Artificially Intelligent systems with much superior capability than that of a normal guard or a present-day IP based sensor. Still, moot question remains: whether the entire Security business be outsourced to the robotics or not? If yes, fully or partially? Can it replicate human intelligence in rational decision making or will it disrupt the Command and Control function too? It may not be possible to make comprehensive and definitive reasoning about AI and Future of Security Business at this stage, but morning shows the day saying would be apt to predict that it is high time that the community must begin to note and discuss the subject in detail.
