Police use AI Voice Recognition Technology in Sexual Crime Investigation

South Korean police introduced an auto-generated sexual violence crime investigation report system using  AI voice recognition technology. The system has been installed and operated at 59 police stations nationwide, including Seoul, southern Gyeonggi Province, and Busan, since December 14th.

The “AI Voice Recognition Sexual Crime Investigation Report Writing System” is an artificial intelligence investigation system in which AI listens to statements of sexual violence victims and texts them in real-time. When a victim makes a statement verbally in front of a designated microphone installed in the investigation room, the conversation is automatically converted to text and saved in the form of an official police statement.

The functions of this system are as follows:

– Investigators can monitor the textualization process on a monitor in real-time.

– Recognition errors of AI can be corrected in real-time.

– AI investigation guide is provided to support a more thorough investigation process by showing an on-screen list of recommended questions which can be done by investigators according to the victim’s statements and related Supreme Court cases.

The system was developed by a Korean tech company, Selvas. The company said, “the Sexual Crime Investigation Report Writing System developed using the voice recognition technology of Selvass AI has been successful and proved its efficiency in the actual field.” It plans to further upgrade the investigation guide by analyzing accumulated data based on trial use and developing algorithms for more accurate and rapid investigation. “This will greatly contribute to the establishment of an efficient investigation environment that would ease the burden on both victims and investigators and support the investigation process.”
