Dubai Police to unveil game-changing future accelerators initiative at GISEC and IoTx 2017

DUBAI,16th May, 2017 (WAM) -- Dubai Police will unveil game-changing future accelerators initiative at Gulf Information Security Expo and Conference, GISEC, and co-located Internet of Things Expo, IoTx, from 21st to 23rd May at Dubai World Trade Centre, DWTC.

Dubai Police will showcase a revolutionary product, its 'AI Policeman’, that harnesses the much-vaunted Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and Smart Services technologies, and will become a common sight across the emirate in months and years to come.

"This global launch aligns with Dubai Police’s commitment to the Dubai Plan 2021 and our pivotal role in achieving the emirate’s smart city strategy," said Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, Director-General of Smart Services, Dubai Police. "This world’s first technology will not only revolutionise the emirate’s police force, it will also provide an engaging, interactive and informative touchpoint between Dubai Police, the general public and visitors from all over the world. It’s the latest example of Dubai championing smart technology on a global level."

A pioneering project that includes over 100 smart city initiatives and a plan to transform 1,000 government services across the full spectrum of public sector entities, the Dubai Plan 2021 aligns with the city’s preparations for hosting Expo 2020 Dubai, which is expected to attract more than 25 million visitors from October 2020 to April 2021.

Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Exhibitions and Events Management, DWTC, says the new Dubai Police product launch signals an upsurge in closer government and public engagement for which GISEC, the Middle East’s largest dedicated cyber security, and IoTx are providing test-bed demonstration platforms.

GISEC 2017 is strictly open only to the security and intelligence community, including government departments, businesses and enterprises.
