There’s seemed to be a great emphasis on security on Singapore Homeland. Singapore Government is planning to spend billions of dollars on ICA bio-metric technology to enhance border security and decrease time spent on manual intervention with ever-increasing traffic to Singapore; and with increasing budget on defense technology for defense expenditure to counter terrorist attacks or prepare for security environment deteriorated.
So, with the increasing budget for security, are we more secure? Yes, in nature.
Security, with the leverage of modern technology, did indeed, assisted many security agencies in cracking down threats from peace. A few examples can sustain this theory:
Wide range of security cameras deployed at Singapore public road and areas, these provided and assisted Singapore Police Force and relevant agencies, in ensuring public areas are well covered with surveillance in case of riots or terrorist attacks. With such effort, you will be sure, that when you are busy walking down the street, you won’t be worrying about attacks from terrorists.
With Video Analytic found in each surveillance cameras, art galleries can be sure, there will not be anybody loitering during off visitor hours; detection alarm will alert if any gallery painting went missing, and detecting intrusion with the use of tripwire analytics and vibration PPS (Perimeter Protection System). This, will be a form of investment for protection on valuable assets security measures.
In the near future to come, future enhanced version of Video Analytics will leverage on greater form of technology, such as more powerful CPU, high capacity of GPU that’s able to support and process deep learning ability and with such ability to introduce the development of Intelligence Surveillance (IS). In simple term, the moment you step into a shopping mall entrance, the Close Circuit Television (CCTV) will send back the video footage back to back-end CCTV system and process your face into Facial Recognition System (FRS). FRS will proceed to next level of check to see if you are ex-criminal convict and if there’s any potential of committing crimes within the mall. If the system detects it, it may trigger alarms to mall security guards or local police for further action. This scene reminds us of the movie “Minority Report” starring Tom Cruise in a 2002 film.
In summary, evolution of ever-changing technology enables more opportunities for security industry to improve and implement more innovative security measures, to make security more secure.
