- The company has also been working with the Indian Army, a fact that it has revealed for the first time, exclusively to YourStory.
- As far as working with the police is concerned, Staqu has so far teamed up with eight state police forces across the country, including Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, and Telangana to check and solve crimes using artificial intelligence (AI).
- In the safety and security space, Staqu offers three products: ABHED for fingerprint, facial and voice analysis, Jarvis for video analytics, and Pine for big data on criminals.
- Then it created an app called ABHED (Artificial Intelligence Based Human Efface Detection) for the Rajasthan Police in late 2017 to create a digital record of convicted criminals – a database that can be updated and is searchable.
- For instance, if the police intercept or come across a suspect, they can take a picture of the person, and run it for matches on the criminal database through the app.
