Many community safety and emergency management officials around the world view issues such as the Internet of Things (or Internet of Public Safety Things), smart cities, artificial intelligence, machine learning, alerting and advanced analytics as distinct and separate technologies.
However, others believe that these technologies, or better yet ‘capabilities’, and the myriad of others public safety and emergency management agencies are exploiting, are merely components of a new, exciting, dynamic and complex community safety information management ecosystem.
It is only by understanding this ecosystem, as much as anyone can understand issues as diverse as Next Generation 0-0-0, Public Safety Mobile Broadband (FirstNet for our US partners), cloud computing, big data, analytics, body-worn video and unmanned aerial systems, that community safety leaders will be able to leverage them.
More importantly, chief information officers need to develop and implement information management strategies, or road maps, at the regional, national and international levels.
This session, with multiple subject matter experts from around the world participating, will help Comms Connect delegates understand both the challenges and opportunities these capabilities present.
Panel members: Steve Correll — Executive Director, Nlets, Lieutenant Dan Gomez — CTO, LAPD, David Lund — Coordinator, BroadMap, Dereck Orr — Division Chief, Public Safety Communications Division, NIST, Communications Technology Laboratory
