Robot police men set to hit the streets in 2017

The Dubai police force aim to have fully functioning robo-cops on the beat by 2017.

Colonel Khalid Nasser Alrazooq told a security conference in Dubai, ‘The robots will interact directly with people and tourists.

They will include an interactive screen and microphone connected to the Dubai Police call centers.

People will be able to ask questions and make complaints, but they will also have fun interacting with the robots.’

But they’ll rapidly get more intelligent, the police chief says.

He hopes to have fully AI-driven models on the streets within four to five years.

‘These will be fully intelligent robots that can interact with people, with no human intervention at all. This is still under research and development, but we are planning on it,’ he said.

Just for reference, here is Robocop’s prediction of ‘the future of law enforcement’.

Dalmas Otieno to vie for presidency in 2017

Rongo MP Dalmas Otieno has declared his intension to vie for the Presidency in 2017.

Otieno has called on Luo leaders and residents of Nyanza in general to support him for the battle come the next general elections.

The veteran Luo politician who has openly gone against Odinga’s political wishes said he will soon launch a party that he will use to propel him to the highest office in the country.

The former cabinet minister in the Mwai Kibaki/Odinga led coalition government regretted the culture of violence some political leaders in Luo Nyanza were inculcating into the youth at the expense of the region’s development.

Otieno made the remarks yesterday in North Sakwa location, Awendo Constituency in Migori County during the burial of his uncle Mzee Maricus Obunge.

The legislator refuted claims that he was fighting Odinga as ODM’s party leader saying all leaders should be given time to vie for higher posts.

“Am not out to destroy any other person’s party but we expect our people of Luo Nyanza to give all the leaders time to express their views and political ambitions,” he said.

Otieno further warned his fellow leaders to let the people judge their development records on their own and not to force unpopular leaders into leadership of the area.

The former minister, who is regarded as being among the growing list of ODM rebels, said he was coming with a political wave that will change the political thinking in Nyanza.
