Advances in machine learning being developed at McMaster University by Electrical and Computer Engineering Prof. Natalia Nikolova (Canada Research Chair in High-Frequency Electromagnetics) are being used to detect concealed weapons.

Nikolova’s technology is being incorporated into the new NForce weapons detection system developed by Patriot One Technologies, Inc. The system can pick up weapons as people pass through various points, such as doors and turnstiles.

The NForce system and Nikolova’s supporting research was introduced during the International Association of Chiefs of Police in San Diego on Oct. 15.
