PANEL: THE CHALLENGES OF AI: USING, PROTECTING AND MAXIMIZING THE POTENTIAL OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR DEFENSE AND SECURITY
Description: The introduction of artificial intelligence into defense, national security and public safety applications presents both opportunity and challenges. From questions on how to integrate and maximize the resulting information to the challenges of how to protect it, there’s no shortage of debate when it comes to how the DOD and other government agencies should be utilizing this new tool. This lively discussion will seek to answer some questions, while inevitably drawing out new ones, as experts from defense, government and commercial industry debate the best ways for the DOD and government to benefit from commercial developments in this space, capitalize on the lessons already learned, address challenges related to ethics and much more.
