Technology Foresight Forum: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Autonomous Vehicles

Earlier this year, the Stevens Institute of Technology Maritime Security Center (MSC)—a US Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Center of Excellence—and the NY/NJ Regional Metro Alumni Chapter of the Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) hosted the Technology Foresight Forum. This forum brought together a broad base of representatives from the public, private, and government sectors to engage in discourse on the capabilities and potential implications of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and autonomous vehicles on safety, security, and public policy. 

In addition to presenting at the forum, NJOHSP took Intelligence. Unclassified. on the road to talk to some of the forum participants, see how technology impacts each of their organizations, and learn what they hoped to get out of these artificial intelligence-related panels.

Training & Exercise: The Regional Intelligence Academy

The Regional Intelligence Academy (RIA) is a training partnership comprised of NJOHSP, the New Jersey State Police, and the public safety agencies represented in the New Jersey Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI) region. The curriculum aims to teach intelligence tradecraft to law enforcement, first responders, the private sector, and intelligence analysts throughout New Jersey, New York City, and the Philadelphia area. These programs also help design strategies, systems, and activities that provide for intelligence and information exchange and sharing.

Listen to our latest episode to understand more about the RIA and the services it provides to the intelligence community in the region.

Understanding the best ways to respond to active shooter situations can help save lives.

Join Ed Moore, NJOHSP’s Active Shooter Trainer, and Ben Castillo, Director of the NJ Department of Education’s Office of School Preparedness and Emergency Planning, as they discuss the efforts being taken in New Jersey to prepare for such events, options available to those involved in active shooter situations, and available resources and trainings provided by the State and other agencies.

Episode 49: Exploring the Center for Critical Intelligence Studies at Rutgers University

Rutgers became a federally-designated Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence (IC CAE) through a grant award from the Defense Intelligence Agency in January 2015. Since that time, Rutgers University-New Brunswick has established a popular, new minor in Critical Intelligence Studies in collaboration with the SAS political science department; executed a number of certificate programs in intelligence/national security for undergraduate and graduate students across the University; hosted conferences on the most pressing issues in the field; and developed programs to prepare students for potential careers within the Intelligence Community. CCIS continues the work of managing and implementing all existing and new endeavors related to the IC CAE Program.

Join Analysis Bureau Chief Dean Baratta as he discusses this novel program with its advisor Ava Mejlesi and how it leverages ties with a variety of agencies to conduct research, develop practical initiatives, and provide educational and career opportunities for Rutgers students through increased opportunities for interaction with law enforcement and intelligence professionals.
