Smart CCTV using artificial intelligence should be used to spot terrorists in public places, counter-terrorism review says

  • The artificially intelligent CCTV cameras could flag up suspicious behaviour 
  • Yesterday it emerged Network Rail has explored using the cutting-edge tech
  • An official counter-terrorism report said the cameras should be deployed widely
  • In train stations, the cameras could potentially identify people acting strangely 

Smart CCTV using artificial intelligence should be deployed to spot terrorists on public transport and at major events, a counter-terrorism review has said.

It suggested the cameras could be used to automatically flag suspicious behaviour.

Yesterday it emerged that Network Rail has explored using cameras with ‘artificial intelligence techniques’ and London Underground is also considering a pilot scheme to test the technology.

In the report into London’s preparedness for a major terrorist attack, Lord Toby Harris said: ‘Consideration should also be given to how CCTV capabilities could harness emerging artificial intelligence techniques to automatically flag anomalous behaviours.’

He went on: ‘An individual on a train station platform for much longer than is usual could represent a security threat, or alternatively could indicate a person considering an attempt on their own life – either situation warrants intervention.’
