An Evolutionary Approach to Border Security of the Future

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is on the minds of all forward-thinking border agencies, with its promise of greater productivity and throughput, reduced human error, and more robust security. But there is critical groundwork that must be performed to create a viable path to AI at our borders. State-of-the-art detection technology along with a comprehensive integration program are key foundational elements agencies need to employ to gather critical security data. It’s this information that will lead to building more effective, automated business practices and machine learning, ultimately creating the path to AI at our borders. This presentation will discuss these foundational elements border security agencies need to consider to position themselves for a successful AI solution.
