An military-grade surveillance system, with advanced artificial intelligence, will help keep the new World Trade Center safe from terrorist and other criminals. Here’s everything you need to know — and why you should be worried.
The site of the worst disaster in modern American history is being born anew. Right this second, construction crews are working tirelessly to rise five new skyscrapers, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, and a performing arts center, on the 16-acre World Trade Center site. Upon completion next year, 1 World Trade Center will soar 1,776 feet into the sky, making it America’s tallest building, and one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world.
Unfortunately, the rebuilding of the World Trade Center also reestablishes it as Target #1 for would-be terrorist. To combat this gruesome threat, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and other WTC shareholders, are pulling all the stops to build a state-of-the-art surveillance system that aims to prevent a repeat of the September 11 attacks.
