ISNR Abu Dhabi 2018 to examine role of AI in homeland security


ABU DHABI, 17th December, 2017 (WAM) -- In line with the UAE leadership’s vision, artificial intelligence, AI, will form an important underlying component of the eighth edition of the International Exhibition for National Security and Resilience, ISNR Abu Dhabi 2018.

The latest trends in AI and its application in homeland security will be among the key topics of the Critical Infrastructure Protection and Future of Policing forums, as well as the second editions of the exhibition’s two collocated events – Infosecurity Middle East and Major Events Safety and Security Summit, ME3S.

In line with the UAE Strategy for Artificial Intelligence, ISNR Abu Dhabi 2018, jointly organised by the Ministry of Interior and Reed Exhibitions, is set to host keynote addresses from influential government and private sector experts, hold topical discussions, and welcome Titan the Robot. The event seeks to help shape a safer connected world through exploring the impact of AI on diverse segments of national security, including big data analytics, behavioural patterns in fighting crime, response to potential threats, predictive policing, and patrolling robots.

Leveraging AI in robotics and unmanned systems, cyber security and protection, and information superiority has boosted the global supply of robots and unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs, resulting in decreased unit prices. The latest innovations in this field are driving the development of new safety and security applications and facilitating unmanned patrolling operations.

As for cyber and information security, AI is bolstering machine-learning capabilities, reducing the number of human-operated tasks, and enabling faster and more efficient data collection and analysis. It is also attracting more investments in software, limiting the need for hardware such as sensors, and creating demand for personnel with expertise in AI-based operations.

ISNR Abu Dhabi 2018 will span the entire scope of homeland security sectors, such as digital crime management, forensics, critical infrastructure protection, border control, policing, counterterrorism, disaster management, ICT and digital security, crime and offender management, and safety and security at major events and crowded places.

ISNR Abu Dhabi 2018 will run from 6th to 8th March 2018 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, ADNEC. Set to host 600 exhibitors from 55 countries in addition to over 200 government buyers and delegates, the mega security event will welcome 23,000 local and international attendees.
