Bringing AI into Security

Chris Groh
Evolv Technologies

On this episode, we host Brendan McCord and Chris McLaughlin from Evolv Technologies - a startup that is bringing Artificial Intelligence into airport security.

I met Brendan back in October at the AAAE Innovation Forum where I heard him pitch Evolv to the audience. Their approach to improving security at airports is a practical approach that uses AI to supplement human involvement rather than replace it. While there are plenty of companies claiming to use AI in different industries, I was interested in Evolv because they are not a company using “AI” as a buzzword but putting it to use.

This conversation is a little bit long, but we get into some great topics and dive deep into what using AI means not just from a safety stand point, but also from a privacy standpoint. We also talk about how to get in front any inherent bias from the AI’s code. Finally, we wrap up our conversation talking about what the future of security looks like, how to protect ourselves against unforeseen threats, and, of course, recommendations for airports looking to build new terminal or renovate old ones for making sure the security area is ready to adapt.

PAVIX: Proven Winner for All Airport Concrete Infrastructure

PAVIX: Proven Winner for All Airport Concrete Infrastructure

International Chem-Crete Corporation (ICC) manufactures and sells PAVIX, a unique line of crystalline waterproofing products that penetrate into the surface of cured concrete to fill and seal pores and capillary voids, creating a long lasting protective zone within the concrete substrate.

Once concrete is treated, water is prevented from penetrating through this protective zone and causing associated damage, such as freeze-thaw cracking, reinforcing steel corrosion, chloride ion penetration, and ASR related cracking.

This white paper discusses how the PAVIX CCC100 technolgy works and its applications.
