Securing New Ground Panel to Highlight Shift From Smart Cities to Conscious Cities

It’s almost time for Securing New Ground (SNG), the annual executive conference  hosted by the Security Industry Association (SIA), and we’re looking forward to an exciting lineup of discussions on the security business trends that matter most. In one of the event’s featured discussions – The Smart City of the Future Will Be Conscious – a panel of top experts will discuss how cities use video analytics to increase response prevention and enhance city planning.

Does a smart city mean faster response times? Can video systems be imbued with intelligence to generate accurate dispatches for police and emergency services? What does a smart city mean for the privacy of individuals? Can a smart city use security and sensor technologies to shape urban planning? How can city leaders deploy Internet of Things (IoT) technology for effective municipal management? Scott Dunn, senior director of business development solutions and services at Axis Communications, will lead a panel of smart city experts – Kirk Arthur, director of worldwide industry solutions public safety and justice at Microsoft; Jack Hanagriff, law enforcement liaison at the Houston Police Department; Chris Bartos, vision team lead of vision, markets at channel sales in Intel Corporation’s IoT group; and Jordan Heilweil, founder of Total Recall Group – in exploring these questions and more.

In this session, panelists will discuss how practitioners must be able to optimize opportunities to deploy and re-stabilize surveillance systems while generating computer-aided dispatch for police and fire computer-aided systems. Privacy and security challenges and concerns will also be highlighted.

Potential topics to be addressed in this session include infrastructure challenges presented by heavy camera analytics, exploring cloud technology as an enabler and way to deliver analytics to consumers, how to effectively introduce security technology to the public safety and emergency services community and the role of public-private partnerships in smart city security, along with past, present and future Security Megatrends.

This session will take place on Thursday, Oct. 25, at 4:00 p.m. (EDT). Learn more.
