Autonomous Capabilities for DoD Summit



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.
