Real-Time AI Security May Help Border Authorities
A newly developed border security tool from Unisys claims to have real-time ability to assist worldwide law enforcement in judging whether or not a traveler or cargo is engaged in criminal activity.
The U.S. IT company Unisys is touting a system called LineSight that’s designed to help border authorities detect the most suspicious travelers or freight going in and out of airports, security checkpoints and all other forms of international transportation. The LineSight system analyzes data including airline ticket information, Interpol intelligence and cargo manifests to help border authorities pick out the most plausible threat in seconds. The system could be installed at global checkpoints to determine who is detained, admitted or subject to additional searches.
“A border officer has just two seconds to decide whether to grant or deny clearance to cross the border,” Unisys Corporation tweeted Tuesday, hailing the ability of their new system to flag the most likely criminal activity.
LineSight announced Tuesday that its newly developed artificial intelligence can blend a wide array of passenger travel history, suspicious business dealings and outlying shipments to make sure that human law enforcement officers are spending more of their time investigating the most statistically likely criminal activity. Unisys previously worked with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency providing fingerprint and face scans at the country’s borders. Their new software boasts the ability to do facial matching using live video streams at border checkpoints.
