Lt-Gen Surachate Hakparn told his men yesterday that they would have “artificial intelligence” to help them at airports. 

He said a new system was being introduced to help combat the problem of illegal entry and illegal workers. This would also help with other associated crimes like human trafficking and prostitution.

He promised the new system would be up and running in four months time. 

The top cop – known as Big Joke – told an immigration training seminar in Don Muang that introducing new technology was important in the battle against transnational crime.

Many workers were coming to Thailand illegally and he conceded that many Thais were also working illegally abroad. 

Naewna seemed to imply that the technology would be used at Thailand’s airports. 

It was not clear as to what it entailed exactly or whether it would be introduced at other border posts.
