Brave new 5G world

This article reports the first 5G police station located in Shenzhen, China, featuring “real-time ultra-high definition image transmission, facial recognition, police drone patrols and AR smart glasses.” Besides augmented reality glasses offering instant facial recognition, “Cameras are also attached to motorbikes to take pictures of people’s faces and license plates on the back of vehicles” and “Eight drone routes are in use to facilitate police supervision in the region.” Analysts caution that full 5G won’t be available quickly, but China plans to spend $178 billion on infrastructure over the next 8 years.
