In his talk, Mr. Bechtel will be discussing the issues of BigData and its relationship to Artificial Intelligence(AI) in Defense and Intelligence operations. He intends to touch on the following points:
The issues around the efficacy of AI in defense are all related to data.
  • Data and new data sources have proliferated beyond human ability to monitor and/or contextualize each discrete piece of information.
  • Artificial Intelligence, including Machine Learning and Deep Learning, offer the best promise for dealing with the flood of data and reporting.
  • Once we pursue AI, we must have data systems that assemble and care for the reporting in a way that does not hinder and in fact enables our AI algorithms
  • Legacy database systems cannot respond to our data requirements for AI going forward.
  • Our new systems must be able to collect, ingest, govern, secure, and make accessible the whole volume of data.
  • The qualities of that new system can be delineated as flexible, scalable, and clean.
