The new era of law enforcement

Thanks to its ability to identify, forecast and act autonomously, artificial intelligence has transformed crime prevention.

From face detection to predictive policing, what was impossible is now commonplace. So don’t miss this opportunity to discover how innovative technologies are being used in the field – and where it’s heading next.

Explore how technology is championing justice

In the first Monash Tech Talks event of 2022, you’ll hear from a panel of leading specialists in IT and law on:

  • how authorities are using AI and other next-gen technologies
  • ethical issues that have emerged from leveraging AI in law enforcement
  • what ‘Operation Ironside’ is – and why it matters
  • how Monash is collaborating to develop AI and support safer societies.
  • what the future of law enforcement looks like as technology advances
