The 11th Annual Big Data for Intelligence Symposium will convene in two short weeks. This Symposium will host senior leaders from across DoD, IC, military branches, academia, and industry to discuss the modernization initiatives to leverage data as a strategic asset.

This year’s event will feature a panel discussion on “AI Applications for Advancing Data-Driven Digital Modernization.” Big data and artificial intelligence are two of the most influential and disruptive technologies transforming industries around the world. This panel will explore their increasingly interconnected relationship, namely how the IC, DoD, and federal government are looking to AI to improve big data management to help fight and win wars. The more big data grows, the more we will look to AI to automate our collection and processing of the vast amount of data. In turn, the more data we feed into AI algorithms and machines, the more these platforms learn from the data.

Panel Moderator:

Tim Kao – Vice President, Data Science, CNA


· Marin Halper – Vice President, Cross-Cutting Priorities, The MITRE Corporation
· Heather M. Wojton, Ph.D. – Director, Research Quality and Chief Data Officer, Institute for Defense Analyses
· Brian Joseph – Deputy Director, Data Analytics, OUSD A&S
· Mark Brunner – President, Public Sector, Primer
