Featured Guest Speaker: Brett Vaughan, Chief AI Officer & ONR AI Portfolio Manager at the United States Navy!


AI is proving an essential technology to enhance and accelerate modern militaries. It should come as no surprise then that the US Navy’s Office of Naval Research is looking into AI applications to enhance and optimize areas related to AI assisted human decision making, autonomous systems, predictive analytics solutions, and other related areas to maintain advantages over increasingly capable adversaries and competitors. However, AI isn’t always the right solution to every problem. During this presentation Brett will discuss challenges related to adopting both Digital Tech and a Digital Culture as well as what’s involved in the AI stack from provisioning, deploying and sustaining. He will share where the Navy is currently using AI, where it’s headed with it’s AI adoption, and some of the challenges and opportunities the US Navy will face along the way.

Come join us for this great presentation around areas related to:

  • Navy AI Calculus: Is AI the Right Hammer?
  • The AI Stack: Provisioning, Deploying and Sustaining.
  • The Greatest Challenge: Slaying Scylla & Charybdis (Digital Tech and Digital Culture).

and stick around for Q&A with Brett at the end.
