Panel: Promising Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Government

Wednesday | 3:20PM - 4:00PM | Jefferson West

AI is transforming business and industry. Although the public might perceive government agencies and the public sector as slow adopters of emerging AI technologies, sometimes the opposite is true. Government agencies can be some of the earliest adopters. Join this panel discussion to learn how researchers, commanders, civilian agency executives and state and local governments can use Solr and AI-powered search. The panelists will discuss use cases that they are evaluating for implementations that will assist them with use cases best suited for AI and machine learning, such as: enhancing operational efficiency; predicting mission effectiveness; assuring battlefield readiness; evaluating vendor proposals; and predictive maintenance for vehicles in the field.

Audience Takeaway
Learn how artificial intelligence capabilities at defense, intelligence and civilian agencies can help them achieve their missions.

Intended Audience
Government employees interested in practical AI applications.
