Solutions that stop students from attacking people at their schools. Solutions that stop evil doers from attacking people at concerts, houses of worship, in neighborhoods, and numerous other places. Sadly, people continually call for lawmakers to create more laws (moreRead More →

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is getting a lot of headlines and hype, however, the recently released book, Architects of Intelligence noted that most Artificial Intelligence experts say it could be 10, 30, 80 years, or more before Artificial Intelligence delivers artificial general intelligence.

“We know that post-traumatic stress and catastrophic events can cause depression. And there can be suicidal thoughts. But we really now are seeing that there’s a big risk and that’s why we want to get these kids the help that they really need to make sure that someone is looking out for them. Usually, the first six months following an event are the scariest because it’s the most acute. But then after that, it’s anytime there’s an anniversary. And anytime that there’s something significant. But we still see that people who are affected, it can happen at any time.” – Dr. Nicole Mavrides Warning Signs andRead More →

It was an honor to connect with ITL CEO Wayne Allen on the Innovator’s Edge Podcast! Together we discussed how Awareity’s innovative “Smart Platform” solution is designed with Community-wide Threat Assessment Teams in mind.
