My Quiet Life My Quiet Life

ear for crime

This is a little creepy:

Now, a camera-and-microphone surveillance system is using his insights to recognize – instantly, and with high accuracy - the sound of a gunshot, and only a gunshot within a two-block radius.

It can then locate, precisely, where the shot was fired; turn a camera to center the shooter in the camera viewfinder, and make a 911 call to a central police station. The police can then take control of the camera to track the shooter and dispatch officers to the scene.

It says it’s based on “neural” technology, but doesn’t elaborate beyond references to the brain, so I don’t know if it’s an actual PDP model or what.
