Symposium

The Patuxent Partnership is sharing information about an upcoming Defense Department artificial intelligence symposium and exposition on September 9-10, 2020.

It is sponsored by the DoD Joint AI Center.

About the Symposium

When Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was asked by Congress what the No. 1 priority for DoD technology modernization ought to be, he responded, “For me it’s artificial intelligence. I think artificial intelligence will likely change the character of warfare, and I believe whoever masters it first will dominate on the battlefield for many, many, many years. It’s a fundamental game changer. We have to get there first.”

The potential of AI is compared to harnessing the power of electricity. The Department of Defense is focused on delivering AI-enabled solutions that benefit our troops operating across the globe; safeguard our citizens; defend our allies; and improve the effectiveness, affordability, and the speed of our operations. The table stakes are high. What is done now to accelerate and deliver AI to the warfighter will have a profound impact on our nation’s ability to field a pre-eminent and capable military force.
