ISC East, in collaboration with premier sponsor, the Security Industry Association (SIA), reported strong growth results at the conclusion of this year’s industry event in New York City. The International Security Conference & Exposition is the Northeast’s largest security trade show, where close to 7,500 security and public safety professionals convened this month to meet experts from over 300 leading security brands, all the while co-locating with the launch of Unmanned Security Expo New York and Infosecurity North America, Europe’s global information security event. Welcoming 85 new companies and brands and close to 1,000 more industry professionals compared to 2017, the ISC East exhibit hall bustled and featured expanded in-depth content - including new technologies and product categories, more special events/networking opportunities, and a variety of all-new complimentary education through SIA Education@ISC and Unmanned Security Expo New York. Comprehensive Security for a Safer, Connected World The extensive variety of vendors and professionalism of the ISC staff make it one of the best shows out there" Mary Beth Shaughnessy, Event Director for ISC Security Events, noted, “It was exciting to see such a robust expo floor and high attendance growth with our New York event this year, all while matching up to our brand theme of Comprehensive Security for a Safer, Connected World. The top attended education sessions were formed around a diverse spectrum of topics including cyber-physical integration, converged security for smart cities buildings, the impact of IT and AI on video surveillance/intelligence, critical incidents prevention and mitigation, plus drones, drone-detection, drone-regulations and policies, and more. The present and future is bright for ISC East and we are committed to providing great solutions and education for this community.” Over the past 4 years, the ISC East Show Floor has grown by over 60% in square footage and has come to be known as ‘the highlight of the year,’ stated by Linda Esposito, Security Specialist of US Postal Inspection Service. “The extensive variety of vendors and professionalism of the ISC staff make it one of the best shows out there. In addition, Alex Pachikov of Sunflower Labs, a first-time exhibitor at Unmanned Security Expo, commented, “This was the perfect venue for us to introduce the Sunflower Labs drone-based security system. We had the perfect audience and fantastic exposure to potential customers, installation partners and system integrators.” Unmanned Security Expo Additionally, while Unmanned Security Expo presented 15+ sessions dedicated to the in-depth issues, policies and opportunities for UASs and UGVs, the SIA Education@ISC East program offered 25+ complimentary education courses and highlighted two distinct Keynote Speakers for the first time at ISC East - Philip Halpin, Senior Vice President & Head of Global Security for Brown Brothers Harriman, and James A. Gagliano, Retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent, CNN Law Enforcement Analyst, and Adjunct Assistant Professor at St. John’s University. SIA Education@ISC East 2018 SIA Education@ISC East 2018 was a great success, with hundreds of conference attendees participating in education sessions, engaging keynotes and hands-on workshops" “SIA Education@ISC East 2018 was a great success, with hundreds of conference attendees participating in our education sessions, engaging keynotes and hands-on workshops,” said Don Erickson, CEO of the Security Industry Association. “This year’s sessions highlighted cutting-edge topics like the move to smart cities, convergence in the security industry, the use of artificial intelligence in video analytics, and how some legacy connections leave modern access control data vulnerable to hacking.” With so much learning and knowledge-sharing happening on the show floor, security professionals still found time to participate and engage at the numerous special events that ISC East had to offer, including: the first-ever SIA Women in Security Forum Breakfast, the new Mission 500 Hygiene Kit Building, the ever-popular ASTORS Homeland Security Awards, ISC East’s Featured Product showcase featuring some of the most innovative product technologies, a high-profile celebrity appearance of former NY Yankees player Tino Martinez , the signature ISC East Grand Opening Ceremony, the Crack the Tap Cocktail Reception, and so much more.

Imagine ideas such as flat thin lenses that could shrink the size, weight and cost of phones and cameras; or a soft, flexible skin for robots that gives them a gentle human-like sense of touch; or blockchain-based health record storage that reduces medical costs while guarding privacy and improving trust between patients and doctors. These are among the new artificial intelligence, electronics and optoelectronics inventions and research that will soon be unveiled at the Future Tech Expo 2018 exhibition. Future Tech Expo 2018 runs from December 13 to 15, 2018 at the Taipei World Trade Center, Hall 3 in Taipei, Taiwan. The main organiser is the Ministry of Science and Technology of Taiwan. Rewarding the research teams Future Tech Expo 2018 will show Taiwan's revolutionary breakthroughs in optoelectronics, electronics and artificial intelligenceFuture Tech Expo 2018 focusses on meeting the needs of people and industry. This exhibition lets us learn about cutting edge research that is also practical, and helps ordinary people understand how science could change their lives. In addition, the event acknowledges and rewards the research teams from academia and institutions who are building these critical tools and technologies of the near future. Future Tech Expo 2018 will show Taiwan's revolutionary breakthroughs in optoelectronics, electronics and artificial intelligence. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report for 2018, in the ‘Innovation ecosystem component’ category, Taiwan ranks number one in Asia and fourth globally for its innovation capability (after Germany, the United States, and Switzerland). Metalenses and robotic skin A soft, flexible skin for robots that gives them a human-like sense of touch has been developed by scientists at National Chung Hsing UniversityResearchers at Academia Sinica have been working on metalenses – totally flat thin lenses that could shrink the size and cost of cameras and phones. Metalenses can be light and thin, because they are not made from dense glass or plastic. Unlike older metalense projects, which tended to distort colours, these lenses create better full-colour images. Tiny lenses can now be cheaply manufactured using the same equipment that makes computer chips. A soft, flexible skin for robots that gives them a human-like sense of touch has been developed by scientists at National Chung Hsing University. This research appears suitable for many applications where robots need a fine sense of touch to handle objects carefully and delicately – including work, such as healthcare, where robots come into direct contact with human. Pingtung Christian Hospital has developed a blockchain-based health record storage that will reduce costs while guarding privacy and enhancing trust between patients and medical professionals. The system makes it easier to securely exchange many different types of medical and personal data.
