This year’s conference also presented an opportunity for Customs officials to share lessons they have learned with their latest pilot projects and initiatives deploying new technology, including: data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. This year, the IT conference focused on building a reliable digital landscape to boost cross-border trade.
CT Strategies’ Partner, Andrew Farrelly, was a keynote speaker at the event, discussing how Customs officials can use technology to transform and transcend border management.
CV2 – Innovative Common Viewer Technology
The ability to network all types of: biometric sensors, x-ray scanners, radiation detection, container number and license plate readers, closed-circuit television, and other existing databases- and remotely review them from anywhere has potential to revolutionize border management and security operations. The system also allows for plug-in detection algorithms that can be added and customized to identify specific threats. The system is currently in use by the customs service in the Netherlands, which has experienced enhanced efficiencies. It is also being piloted in the United States by CBP at select port locations.
