"We are using AI-based Face Mask Violation Enforcement for the purpose. Leveraging Computer Vision and Deep Learning Technique being implemented on surveillance of CCTVs across the cities.  This is the first of its kind in India.  The technology will be enabled shortly across the three Commissionerates in the State," the DGP of Telangana said.
