Join our next webinar September 19 presented by NEC 
Security and Safety Made Smart with Fiber-Optic Sensing 

Securing and safeguarding people, properties, critical facilities, and borders have long been a challenge for commercial, local, state, and federal authorities. For years, NEC has provided smart security solutions to those authorities based on number one NIST rated biometrics. Building upon this, Dr. Giovanni Milione, a researcher in NEC’s Princeton laboratories, discusses a smart security solution based on fiber-optic sensing, which combines decades of NEC’s expertise in high–speed transoceanic optical fiber communication and machine learning based AI. Threats to safety and security can be located instantly and accurately in every season, weather condition, and environment. Presented by Dr. Giovanni Milione and Benji Hutchinson. 

Dr. Giovanni Milione is a researcher in the Optical Networking and Sensing Department, of NEC’s Princeton laboratories. His research includes high-speed & long distance fiber-optic communication, fiber-optic sensing, and machine learning based AI. Dr. Milione holds a PhD in Physics, and is a United States Army Veteran, being deployed for the Iraq & Afghanistan Wars. 

Benji Hutchinson is Vice President of Federal Operations in the Washington D.C. office of NEC Corporation of America’s Advanced Recognition Systems Division. He has 15 years of direct experience in the biometrics and identity technology industries supporting US national security and homeland defense agencies across the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, Department of State, Intelligence Community, and Department of Homeland Security.
