The Chennai city police are setting up an AI-driven cybercrime lab at Vepery. Once active, it will help police to live-track phones, and break into VPNs much faster with next-generation gadgets. While 90% of cases reported in the city are linked to cybercrimes, current tracking of culprits takes up to two days. Being constructed for ₹5.6 cr, the new lab will enable police to get results and catch culprits in just five minutes, with the help of an IP address or a phone number.
