Guarding in the Age of Robotics

Guarding in the Age of Robotics

April 11, 2018, 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Sands 201 Level 1


Developments in artificial intelligence and robotics are helping traditional security guard companies not only perform the basic functions of ensuring safety, detection and reporting, but new developments in AI and robotics can take those concepts to the next level, increasing operational efficiency and reducing liability. Instead of fearing that robotic security devices will take the place of human security guards, consider this: they can work together.

Traditional security guarding companies can benefit from artificial intelligence technology through the deployment of robotic guards. Panelists will talk about the shift in business and guarding strategy to promote human guards for tasks that require human intellect, while allowing robotic guards to patrol in dangerous situations, long patrol shifts or areas that are too wide for traditional guarding.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Summarize how AI technology can apply to security guarding companies.
2. Review the options for augmenting a traditional guarding force with robotic security guards.
3. Identify the issues that face guarding companies today.
