ICDATA Keynote Lecture - 2021

SpeakerAndrew Johnston
Consultant with Mitiga, CEO and Co-Founder of Recluse Laboratories
Topic/TitleKeynote: "Badges & Neural Networks: Improving Law Enforcement with AI"
Date & TimeTuesday, July 27
06:00 - 07:00pm
LocationGalleria B
DescriptionAI has enabled a variety of novel and exciting technologies ranging from consumer applications to mission-critical systems. One profession, however, has notably failed so far to embrace AI: law enforcement. From investigations, to emergency response, to victim and suspect interviews, AI could readily enhance the capabilities and effectiveness of law enforcement and intelligence professionals. Despite clear benefits, many protests and social movements have been organized around questioning the ethics and integrity of law enforcement, and may be concerned about whether AI would pave the way to potential government suppression, elimination of privacy, or biased policing. In this talk, we will discuss what AI for law enforcement could look like, and how it could empower law enforcement while simultaneously building citizen confidence in law enforcement personnel.

Invited Talk 2

SpeakerPeter Geczy
National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan
Topic/TitleData Science: The Frontier of Digital Economy
Date & Timet.b.a.
DescriptionDigital data explosion has been substantially influencing the major parts of contemporary society. Immense volumes of data are harvested, transmitted and processed daily. Data savvy commercial and governmental organizations have been accumulating extensive amounts of data worldwide. Data has become a vital asset of modern technology corporations and primary driver of digital economy. Expanding economic activity surrounding data has been notably contributing to the gross domestic product of developed economies. Inherent value of data has been creatively monetized by commercial entities searching to enlarge their revenue streams. It has also been utilized for gaining strategic advantages as well as driving innovation and discovery. Realization of value of data is a worthy endeavor. Data Science has emerged as a frontier discipline addressing these aspects. We shall explore pertinent issues at the intersection of data science and digital economy.
