Some students of the Mechatronics and Cybersecurity Department of the Koforidua Technical University (KTU) have successfully installed a locally manufactured traffic light with Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help fight crime on campus.
This has propelled the management of the university to urge the government to invest in the country’s technical universities to enable them develop artificial intelligence tools to help security agencies in the fight against crime.
The limited use of technology in the fight against crime in Ghana, has partly been blamed for the increase in crime in the country.
In the case of the recent bullion van robbery attack at Jamestown in Accra for instance, the absence of state-owned CCTV cameras is hampering the efforts of the police in apprehending the suspects who robbed the van, and killed a police officer and a trader.
Management of the Koforidua Technical University is, therefore, proposing a more scientific and reliable method of intelligence gathering to help security agencies fight crime in the country.
