Defense Strategies Institute is proud to announce the agenda is officially released for the 4th Annual Autonomous Capabilities for DoD Summit. This event features 2 days of collaborative sessions focusing on this year’s theme “Utilizing Autonomous Technologies to Increase Warfighter Flexibility.”

The Summit will provide a “town-hall” style forum to discuss the advanced capabilities that artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled autonomous systems and machine learning provide to the Warfighter in the battlespace and how these emerging technologies are bolstering current and future U.S. Department of Defense (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 AI and other means to their advantage

WHY ATTEND:  Attendees will have the chance to learn about the application of autonomous capabilities and the current increase of human-machine teaming across the military services, which can help  minimize the number of Warfighters in harm’s way, enhance the efficiency and speed of decisions for increased operational success, and enable critical new mission sets that would have never been possible.
