Dutch police are undertaking an experiment to see if augmented reality can help officers at a crime scene, according to the New Scientist.
Using an AI system video from the body cameras worn on the officers at the scene will relay back to experts who can guide the officers by making virtual notes which the officers will be able to see via a smartphone or head-mounted device.
Dragos Datcu, principal researcher at augmented reality (AR) company Twnkls in Rotterdam, the Netherlands said:
We now have good enough software and hardware to use augmented reality at crime scenes.

Apple has filed a patent application for a “virtual assistant in a communication session.” On first glance, application 14/713,410 might scare developers of chat bots and the like, but Apple is specific in the scope of their claims – Siri, their virtual assistant platform, will be able to directly communicate with either user in an iMessage conversation and then be able to act on the instructions given.

However, all this advanced technology is coming at a price of more humans losing their jobs. While the world in its entirety is already struggling in a poor economic period.
