The Department of the Air Force’s Chief Data and Artificial Intelligence Office and the Office of Studies and Analysis are partnering to present the Data, Analytics, and Artificial Intelligence Forum in Herndon, Virginia, April 24-27.

Registration is now open for this four-day gathering of the nation’s top artificial intelligence and data experts to share, demonstrate, and expand collaborations among key government, military, academia and industry stakeholders.

Wayne Schatz, Director of the Office of Studies and Analysis, and Eileen Vidrine, the Department of the Air Force Chief Data and Artificial Intelligence officer, are strategically operationalizing, delivering, and sustaining high-quality, enterprise-level capabilities in data and artificial intelligence that enable decision superiority and supports mission success.

“To be AI ready by 2025 and AI competitive by 2027, the Chief Data and Artificial Intelligence Office and the Office of Studies and Analysis are partnering to accelerate the transformative benefits of integrated data and analytics,” Vidrine said. “Without accurate, reliable data, there cannot be trusted analysis or AI.”

This forum will feature subject matter experts who will share their vast knowledge of data, AI and analytics as a part of an effort to support initiatives like the Department of Defense’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control and the Air Force’s Advanced Battle Management System to respond to a critical need, connecting sensors with shooters across all services in all domains.

Forum registration is open through March 31, 2023. To register, click here.
