Discussion Points:


  1. AI, ML, IoT, Cloud, Mobile, Blockchain and other contemporary technologies are potentially disruptive and game changing. Deep Learning systems and advanced analytics strengthen surveillance and make real time extraction and sharing of actionable intelligence easy. They assist intel, security and law enforcement agencies to recognise suspicious activities without much human supervision, and to act pre-emptively and decisively.
  2. The benefits of Deep Learning for face recognition and image classification makes it extremely valuable in the field of security as it allows for easy identification of suspects, vehicle detection, and behaviour analysis.
  3. The panel will examine the technologies that would redefine surveillance, security (including those of devices, networks and applications), fire, transport and life safety, incident and emergency management landscape. The discussion would include, but not be limited to AI, ML, AA, IoT, Cloud, internet, Social Media, Blockchain etc.

Session 8: Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to Mitigate Threats to Homeland Security (panel discussion)
15:55 - 16:40

Discussion Points

  1. The recent drone attacks against mega Saudi oil facilities have drawn attention to drones as weapons of war, and counter drone technologies.
  2. India shares boundary with seven nations— Nepal, Bhutan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, China, Myanmar and Bangladesh. Managing such diverse land borders is a complex task and these land borders run through different terrains.
  3. The western border in particular is an eternal hotbed with terrorists, drug-traffickers, smugglers and human trafficking gangs are always on the lookout for opportunities to sneak past the BSF and enter our territory.
  4. Unmanned aerial vehicles and drones can play an effective role in keeping an eye on such intruders and also help reduce casualties among our security forces patrolling the borders.
