Transcript from broadcast segment:
A new artificial intelligence system at the Capitol has been implemented with the goal of keeping guns out and visitors safe.
Earlier this year, the Michigan Capitol Commission imposed a gun ban inside the building and set up gun detection systems at the entrances. Now a new AI gun detection camera system will be implemented in the cameras.
This software analyzes recorded footage from inside and outside the building and can alert authorities in seconds if a firearm is detected.
This software has been implemented by Michigan high schools such as Oxford High School and Lansing Catholic High School, making Michigan the first state to implement this system in a capitol building.
