Over recent years, advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) have greatly increased the safety of our communities. The technology helps emergency managers predict and mitigate flooding, wildfires, and other natural disasters. It improves image and video analysis, saving investigators’ valuable time and reducing errors. It aids crime analysts by pouring through vast amounts of data and making connections that can empower policing.
While AI has expanded its role in our everyday lives, many cities are only just beginning to scratch the surface when it comes to the benefits that the technology can provide. With the next few years likely to breed even more innovation, we can expect to rely increasingly on AI to further help save time, money, and, most importantly, lives.
