Meeting of the minds

This landmark event will bring together top government officials, operational experts, industry leaders, and academia to discuss the latest solutions, strategies and challenges, share technological trends, and foster greater collaboration within the international homeland security community.

The conference, led by Milipol Asia-Pacific partner HTX, will largely focus on the theme of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as applied to homeland security, with keynote speeches and panel discussions that will cover the evolution and future of AI, and the role it has to play in public safety and national security.

The wide range of topics to be covered will include a strategic overview of AI and its use in homeland security; how to leverage industry expertise for AI deployment; the ethics of AI and balancing security and privacy, as well as the role of AI in specific homeland security operations such as securing borders, law enforcement, cybersecurity, and real-time crisis management.

To bring these subjects to life, the conference programme boasts a selection of prestigious international speakers, such as Dimitri Kusnezov, Under Secretary for Science and Technology at the US Department of Homeland Security; Diane J. Sabatino, Acting Executive Assistant Commissioner, Office of Field Operations at US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and Sim Feng-Ji, Deputy Secretary, Smart Nation Digital Government, from the Singapore Prime Minister’s Office.
