The Cybersecurity & Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC) is seeking optical AI technology and software that can scan and digitize various items and products for indisputable identification, authentication, and tracing. This technology would use an existing camera or smartphone to render minor dimensional and aesthetic features of an item to create its own digital profile, thus replacing the need to scan serial numbers, barcodes, and QR codes. The technology would also detect authentic and counterfeit products, as well as trace-specific items out of a group of a thousand others.
Based on the potential use cases of this type of technology, would there be a national security risk or dual-usage risk if this technology were given to an adversary?
