With the increase of security consciousness, it is an urgent problem "to provide a safe and secure environment for the citizens". With the use of an "urban surveillance system", the City of Tigre is striving to create an increasingly safe city.

Images from 1,000 cameras installed around the city are analyzed in real time and advanced image analysis technology is used to quickly detect hidden dangers in the city. This system has already produced major results, such as reducing the stolen vehicle rate in Tigre by about 80 percent.

Going forward, how should humans deal with science as it continues to become more advanced?
