Incorporating AI to Meet the Federal Government’s Zero Trust Deadline
With a continued emphasis on the “Zero Trust” model in government, agencies are on the clock to implement the security framework into their networks. But as the 2024 deadline continues to draw nearer, agencies are struggling to understand the requirements needed, and federal officials are having trouble identifying what technologies they need for Zero Trust implementation. In this session, Empower AI CTO Allen Badeau will discuss how AI can support agencies in their efforts to meet the deadline, the role that AI plays in Zero Trust and cybersecurity protections, and what agencies must consider when implementing AI into their networks.
The Case for Public Trust as the Core of AI
The Defense Department in June rolled out its implementation strategy for responsible artificial intelligence principles, bringing a new wave of energy to its long-awaited guidance. Central to the messaging is building trust in AI capabilities among the American people, military leaders, and service members. How will this plan shift the culture of an entire industry? What implications does this approach have outside of the defense sector? In an exclusive interview with Dr. Steven Rogers with AFRL, Defense One unpacks the importance of establishing a trusted ecosystem, instilling confidence with end-users, warfighters, and the American people, as well as the steps for getting there.
Making your data ready for the next AI/ML challenge
With DOD’s recent adoption of the Ethical Principles for Artificial Intelligence we know that data providers, owners, and end users must be responsible, equitable, and provide traceability, reliability and adherence to strict data governance and quality standards. Consumers and users should have a 360º view of their data, whether it is Intelligence Analysis, Logistics, Supply Chain, Inventory management or the Nation's next generation Intelligence Automation. The data that our war fighters depend on must be available, usable, informative, current, accurate and secure. Exploring these aspects and combining them with the challenge of next generation advancements will require careful consideration for the future of data in an AI/ML world adhering to the needs of human to machine, machine to machine, and machine to human interfaces. Is your data ready for the challenge of Automation, is it dependable, is it resilient, will it function as intended in a mission and operational environment? Is your data environment testable with viewable results that can be tracked and audited? Ask these questions and more when considering data readiness in an Automated world of data.
How a Culture of Innovation Can Embrace AI
The speed and potential of technological innovation and development is staggering, and will revolutionize the way the government thinks, operates, and protects. Emerging and expanding technologies such as AI, cloud, and cyber have the potential to profoundly affect national security by solving challenging warfighter dilemmas and expanding defense capabilities. But what programs currently foster a culture of innovation within the DOD and help solve challenging warfighter problems at scale? In this session, IT experts will explore the programs helping the defense community leverage collaboration to stay on the cutting edge of technology and build the future and direction of national security.
