The Accuracy Myth: How to Evaluate AI Technology Critically
Today, nearly every vendor describes its offerings as using artificial intelligence (AI) and being more than 99 percent accurate. However, "artificial intelligence" has no fixed definition, and even the word "accurate" can be misleading since it also lacks a fixed definition. AI purchase decisions require a buyer to understand the technology that undergirds a marketing claim and know how that technology performs. Many vendors say "AI" when they are actually relying on older technology such as linear regression or motion analysis. A deeper analysis of AI system performance requires an understanding of false positive and false negative errors as captured by precision and recall. Walk through how to make these determinations.

Disruption in Sports Venue Security
The sports industry is on the brink of a revolution as teams and venues adopt new technologies, including augmented reality, virtual reality, mobile ticketing, and ticketer tracking. The tsunami of data and information that will be shared with in-venue and at-home viewers creates lucrative opportunities for teams, players, and leagues. However, each of these technology systems and platforms are ripe for exploitation by competitors, thieves, activists, and even nation-state proxies. Share insights on the sports venues and entertainment districts of the future that will drive fan engagement and inclusion. Also explore the critical vulnerabilities that will require new security approaches to protect the people, assets, and information that come together to produce any sporting event.
