Unisys is collaborating with the CSIRO in the development of an advanced data analytics solution for automated security risk assessment of travellers and cargo at air, land and sea borders.

The collaboration sees Unisys funding joint research with the CSIRO’s Data61 to develop what the company says is an advanced data analytics solution capable of detecting potential border security risks posed by travellers, visa applicants, cargo and parcels.

Mark Forman, global head and vice-president for the public sector at Unisys, says the collaboration builds on Unisys’ existing large-scale border security analytics capability to offer a repeatable solution available to governments globally.

“Unisys’ deep domain expertise and global reach combined with Data61’s analytics and machine learning capabilities provides a unique opportunity to advance border security technology around the world during a time of increasingly sophisticated threats and greater dependence on international travel and cargo shipments,” Forman says.

Data 61 chief executive Adrian Turner said, “The end goal of this international collaboration is to make border security processes more efficient, cost effective and safer for countries around the world.

"It’s one of the ways Data61 is working with industry to translate data-science — in this case deep analytics and machine learning — into a viable product to help deliver economic and societal impact.”

John Kendall, global border security director, Unisys, says Data61 brought an “ideal combination of data science research innovation and deep experience in the transport and logistics sector”.

“Most border agencies today rely on human designed rules to identify suspicious people or cargo.

“Working with Data61, we are incorporating machine learning and real-time data analytics to reveal the actual intent of travellers and shippers.

"This will allow border agencies to automate the processing of low risk people and cargo while reserving specialised border security resources for the small percentage of travellers and cargo that present a higher risk profile.”
