Gurgaon-based Artificial Intelligence startup, Staqu, has launched its proprietary criminal registration and search system, ABHED (Artificial intelligence Based Human Efface Detection.) The, first-of-its-kind, app is going to enable police forces to opt for mobile-phone-based criminal registration, including biometric information. Utilizing Staqu’s machine learning prowess, the ABHED app is set to expedite criminal search, missing person search, crime scene fingerprint matching.
Commenting on the launch, Atul Rai, CEO and Co-Founder of Staqu said, “At Staqu, we are inspired to utilize AI, to solve everyday challenges. With the launch of ABHED, we are utilizing our AI prowess, especially in machine learning, for enabling police forces to digitalize and automate profiling & search for criminals and missing people. It has further been a humbling experience to associate with the Alwar Police Department and commission a pioneer pilot program, utilizing AI for nabbing criminals and searching missing people. Given the rising rate of crimes and child trafficking, we hope for a brighter tomorrow, where advanced technology is best deployed to aid security forces.”
On commissioning the pilot program with Staqu, Rahul Prakash, Superintendent of Police, Alwar Police Department, said, “Technology is quickly seeping into our everyday lives and it was only a matter of time before the police department also joined the wave of digitalization and innovation. It has been an enriching experience, collaborating with Staqu and commissioning the unique pilot program that helps in maintaining digital records of criminals or missing people, and via advanced technology helps in searching for the same. Not only will the ABHED app assist the patrolling forces, it will also make the entire process easy, seamless and completely digital.”
On the implementation aspects of the launch, Paras Jain, Additional SP Alwar Police, said, “Our officers are really excited to have such a tool at their disposal. With its ease of searching, our investigation process will become extremely effective.”
The app perfectly works with the existing levels of infrastructure and technology penetration. Optimized for 2G or 3G networks, ABHED is well-equipped to handle thousands queries per seconds and supports unlimited searches & criminal profiles’ indexing.
