Dubai Police will use artificial intelligence to protect Expo 2020. As the awaited Expo 2020 draws closer, Dubai police have expressed their readiness to employ smart technology to secure the venue of the mega event. The commander-in-chief of Dubai Police, Lieutenant-general Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, asserted this while heading the periodic meeting of Expo 2020 Security Committee.
He reiterated the force’s full readiness to protect the much-anticipated event, which is significant in economics, tourism, and culture.
According to Lt. Gen. Al Marrihim, Dubai Police would use all possible artificial intelligence techniques to protect Expo 2020 guests from the moment they arrive in the emirates until they reach the exhibition site, stressing that the global event is the force’s top priority.
Lt. Gen. Al-Marri also inspected the latest smart technology that the force has used to secure the stadium in coordination with local and federal authorities and evaluated security measures for all scheduled events to be hosted across the arena.
He further inspects the workflow and assesses the performance of the Committee’s teams working in the three primary security sectors: support, operations, and criminal investigation.
“All of Dubai Police’s expertise and intelligent systems have been dedicated to enhancing the event’s security protocols and providing the required support to the event’s service providers,” he added.
Al-Marri welcomed the Committee’s efforts and emphasized the significance of working together as a unified team to maintain the emirate’s world-class reputation in all disciplines.
Expo 2020 Dubai, which will take place from October 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022, intends to attract 25 million visitors throughout the six-month event.
Visitors must show documentation of a Covid-19 immunization or a negative PCR test result to enter the site, organizers declared last week.
Visitors aged 18 and up must show documentation of a vaccine recognized by their home country’s government or a negative PCR test during the previous 72 hours.
