The Future of Artificial Intelligence for National Security
October 3, 7:45 – 8:45 a.m. EST

Defense leaders stand at the brink of dramatic change in the ways they fight wars and manage geopolitical landscapes, raising a host of new ethical issues. Today, Artificial Intelligence offers capabilities we could not have imagined – helping us comb through mountains of data more efficiently, making decisions that are more data-driven and informed, and offering autonomous vehicles that reduce dangers. National security leaders must consider the promise and potential of these new capabilities – what can be addressed with AI and what requires human management.

Innovating the Government Experience
October 3, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. EST

The average American spends 10 hours a day in front of a screen…a laptop, a tablet or a mobile phone. We have rapidly grown accustomed to ordering our groceries, summoning taxis and planning vacations with a few clicks. We expect to engage with the Federal Government with the same ease. With the recently published President’s Management Agenda, the White House has directed federal agencies to modernize their technology system and treat the citizen as a customer. Check out a discussion with leading government technologists to hear how they are working to make .gov websites as appealing to use as the best consumer websites.

The Life Blood of Modernity: Position Navigation and Timing
October 4, 7:45 – 8:30 a.m. EST

Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) underpins the infrastructure that drives our modern society. Common conveniences such as cellular communications, electricity, and emergency services are critically dependent on PNT technologies. Both the stability of our society, and continued technological advancement depend on our ability to reliably secure access to PNT information. Watch a discussion on what securing PNT means for government leaders, commercial leaders, and all of us as citizens.

The Next Frontier of Immersive Innovation
October 4, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. EST

We can create digital environments for humans to experience the impossible.
