Autonomous Capabilities for DoD Summit

 In Intelligence

September 29th-30th, 2020 | Mary M. Gates Learning Center, Alexandria, VA

The 2020 Autonomous Capabilities for DoD Summit will pro­vide a ‘town-hall’ style forum to dis­cuss the advanced capa­bil­i­ties that AI-enabled autonomous sys­tems and machine learn­ing pro­vide to the Warfighter in the bat­tle­space, and how these emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies are bol­ster­ing cur­rent and future DoD efforts to achieve mis­sion impact at scale. The Summit will focus on cur­rent ini­tia­tives being enact­ed to lever­age the flex­i­bil­i­ty that autonomous capa­bil­i­ties can pro­vide the Warfighter in the future fight, both to facil­i­tate the DoD’s strat­e­gy of devel­op­ing tech­no­log­i­cal­ly supe­ri­or weapons sys­tems to fur­ther com­pete in the Great Power com­pe­ti­tion, and to out­pace adver­saries who will also uti­lize arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence & other means to their advan­tage.

Topics to be Covered at the 2020 Summit:

  • Driving the devel­op­ment of tech­no­log­i­cal­ly supe­ri­or weapons sys­tems with autonomous capa­bil­i­ties across the DoD
  • Accelerating DoD’s adop­tion & inte­gra­tion of AI & auton­o­my to achieve mis­sion impact at scale
  • Leading the Continued Adoption of AI as the Key to Army Modernization
  • Facilitating the USAF strat­e­gy to imple­ment vary­ing levels of AI for mis­sion suc­cess
  • Empowering the Commanders, Marines, & Sailors abil­i­ty to be more adap­tive & resilient in highly con­test­ed envi­ron­ments using AI & auton­o­my
  • Utilizing inno­v­a­tive & dis­rup­tive AI/Machine Learning tech­nolo­gies to bol­ster Army’s Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS)
  • Considering the eth­i­cal & tech­ni­cal chal­lenges during the devel­op­ment of autonomous sys­tems

At our Summit You Will Have the Ability to:

Gain Education & Insight: Walk away with knowl­edge gained from our senior level speak­ers on some of the most com­plex issues facing the DoD and Government as it relates to auton­o­my, AI, and machine learn­ing.

Build Partnerships: The agenda is designed to allow for ample net­work­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties and the abil­i­ty to dis­cov­er some of the latest tech­nolo­gies, policy con­sid­er­a­tions, and solu­tions of inter­est to the DoD and Government for auton­o­my, AI and machine learn­ing.

Influence: Help foster ideas! Share your own insight and knowl­edge during our inter­ac­tive ses­sions. Our town hall format is your oppor­tu­ni­ty to address our speak­ers with ques­tions or com­ments on the cur­rent mis­sion.
