Artificial intelligence, quantum computing, bioengineering, and other leap-ahead technologies were topics addressed by the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering.

Heidi Shyu provided keynote remarks today at the virtual Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute’s Research Review 2021.

“The challenges facing our military are both diverse and complex, ranging from sophisticated cyberattacks to supply chain risks to defense against hypersonic missiles to responding to biothreats. To address these challenges, the department must harness the incredible innovation ecosystem, both domestically and globally, in order to stay ahead of our adversaries,” Shyu said.
