Robo-bugs maintaining order

By 2040, the drone-watchdogs overseeing public order in Singapore have become smaller. Now they are more like robotic ‘bugs’, equipped with an impressive array of cameras and sensors. These flying observers can pass through the smallest of gaps and constantly send information to the main city observation centre. These not only help to register fines for the crimes they observe being committed, but also serve as a crime prevention measure.

cody reed if their code was open-source and vetted by small, medium, large, and international tech companies as completely autonomous and has a read-only set of rules it functions by, then I could tolerate it. I trust automation to keep peace, but not humans nor AI

MERVE ÖZTÜRK Actually it looks like a good idea to provide safety on the streets but it also violate privacy. I don't want to be recorded by the government 7/24.
