For the second year in a row, Two Hat Security will be attending the Crimes Against Children Conference in Dallas, Texas as a sponsor. Founded in 1988, the conference brings together attendees from law enforcement, child protective services, and more to “provid[e] practical and interactive instruction to those fighting crimes against children and helping children heal.”
Last year, more than 4200 professionals attended CACC — a record for the conference and a sign of the growing need for these discussions, workshops, and training sessions.
Two Hat Security founder and CEO Chris Priebe and VP of Product Brad Leitch are hosting two sessions this year. Both sessions will provide investigators with a deeper understanding of the vital role artificial intelligence plays in the future of abuse investigations.
Session 1: Using Artificial Intelligence to Prioritize and Solve Crimes
Tuesday, August 8
1:45 PM – 3:00 PM
Location: Dallas D2
In this session, we explore what recent advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning mean for law enforcement. We’ll discuss how this new technology can be applied in a meaningful way to triage and solve cases faster. This is a non-technical session that will help prepare investigative teams for upcoming technology innovations.
Session 2: Beyond PhotoDNA — Detecting New Child Sexual Abuse Material With CEASE.ai
Wednesday, August 9
8:30 AM – 9:45 AM
Location: City View 8 (Exhibitor Workshop)
Traditionally, PhotoDNA has allowed organizations to detect already categorized child sexual abuse material (CSAM). Sadly, with new digital content being so easy to create and distribute worldwide, investigators have seen an epidemic of brand-new, never-seen CSAM being shared online.
CEASE is an AI model that uses computer vision to detect these new images. Our collaboration with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has given our data scientists access to a permanent data set of confirmed CSAM, which we are using to train the model.
However, it’s still a work in progress. If you are a member of the law enforcement community or the technology industry, we need your expertise and vast knowledge to help shape this groundbreaking system.
Stop by our booth
We look forward to meeting fellow attendees and discussing potential collaboration and partnership opportunities. Visit us at booth 41 on the 2nd floor, next to Griffeye.
As we learned at the Protecting Innocence Hackathon in July, “If we want to protect the innocence of children, we have a responsibility to be transparent and collaborative.”
