Secure & Safe Urban Spaces Protected by Digitalization
December 14, 2017
The rapid globalization and urbanization in recent years have energized the migration of people and things.
As trends shift towards greater concentration of global populations and economies in urban areas, crime and terrorism as well as other risk factors grow in cities and generate concern about the vast potential harm.
Furthermore, new types of crime unable to be prevented by conventional means are also beginning to increase as individuals gain greater power to more dramatically impact the world through the prevalence of the Internet.
The necessity for safety measures is growing in cities that use digital technologies.
NEC is working to make secure and safe cities around the world a reality by using leading-edge technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), which includes biometric authentication as well as video analysis, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
This report discusses international trends, the direction of technology and NEC's thoughts and initiatives on towards achieving safety in cities across the globe.
