Implications of Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) in policing in general and criminal investigation in specific is set to take centre stage in the latest edition of cOcOn, an annual International Cyber Security, Data Privacy And Hacking Conference to be hosted by the Kerala Police in the city of Kochi in Kerala in October, said Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Intelligence, Manoj Abraham on Tuesday.

The 16th edition of the conference will be organised by the Kerala Police in association with Information Security Research Association (ISRA), The Society for the Policing of Cyberspace (POLCYB, a not-for-profit society based in British Columbia, Canada), UNICEF, ICMEC, WeProtect and a host of other agencies at Grand Hyatt Hotel, Bolghatty, from October 4 to 7.

“The conference will explore how Generative AI can be used in policing and the challenges it can pose to policing in the hands of criminals. The implications of the technology tool in investigation, training and various aspects of policing will be looked into,” said Mr. Abraham who has been the driving force behind the international conference since its inception.

The conference was held virtually for two years owing to the COVID-19 pandemic before resuming offline in 2022. So far, around 1,300 delegates from 32 countries have registered for the conference. The conference will also have around 30 stalls providing various technological solutions.

Mr. Abraham said that cOcOn has been instrumental in many cybersecurity initiatives of the Kerala Police, including the Cyberdome, Drone Forensics. “It offers a perfect platform for brainstorming ideas germinating across the world. It also brings together volunteers who extend assistance to the police in fighting cybercrimes,” he said.
