How can emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, cloud, blockchain and big data create a new frontier for next-generation safety challenges across Australia and New Zealand?
We are now at the intersection of where technology meets humanity and at the forefront of living in a smart nation.
Consider the vast amounts of data collected from cameras, sensors, personnel and the public every day and the potential that this information holds to help agencies and businesses overcome complex threats or the potential that new technologies like wearable sensors hold to keep those on the front line safer.
While innovation holds great promise for the future of agencies and businesses, it is important not to forget that the work of employees in the field is critical and they often find themselves in dangerous and unpredictable environments where split-second decisions can mean the difference between life and death – technology in safety cannot break and cannot have security weaknesses.
This presentation, led by Graeme Stanley, Director – Public Safety Innovation for Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand, will explore what disruptive technologies are now available, the potential of these technologies to combat the next generation of safety challenges, what risks a dependency on these technologies might hold and what actions can be taken to mitigate risks while still ensuring best-of-breed safety outcomes.
