Mission Intensity: Thriving in the Smart Machine Age

• To thrive in today’s complex world, we need to team with machines and lead with humility.

• This talk will explore a construct —Mission Intensity— for winning in the Smart machine age through equal investment in modern technology (cloud, data, AI, ML)

and a culture of learning and inclusion.

Relying on Humans: How Artificial Intelligence Succeeds or Fails on Human Factors

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are terms that have emerged as tools on the heels of various success stories, primarily those involving few variable problem-sets

in fields such as imagery analysis (SIGINT) and consumer behaviors. However, there are as many cases where AI/ML has fallen short on delivering advanced data analytics

particularly in complex, multiple, partial value data ecosystems. Such settings represent those that are most encountered in defense and security operations. We dissect, with

precision, when, where and why AI/ML has proven to be an effective tool and why the integration of appropriate human skillsets is the predicate upon which AI/ML succeeds

or fails.
