We carry out research with market context and help our partners understand their data and how best to use it.

Currently, border agencies rely on human designed rules to identify suspicious people or cargo. Data61 partnered with Unisys to develop an advanced data analytics solution for automated security risk assessment of travellers and cargo at air, land and sea borders to make the border security processes more efficient, cost effective and safer for countries around the world.

The research involved assessing anonymised data sets from airlines using analytics and machine learning to identify patterns that indicate potential risks of both traveller intent and cargo contents. The end result is a product that is on sale internationally for governments aiming to secure international borders.
