Realising the full potential of Data
Commercial data analytics has revolutionised the operational strategy of the largest companies in the world. There are now numerous opportunities to adapt civilian technological solutions to meet the requirements of the defence sector.
Considering the amount, the variety, and the complexity of the data available today, obtaining reliable intelligence and storing it securely has become an essential challenge for every organisations involved with the defence industry.
The Big Data for Defence Summit aims to address this challenge, by allowing military and civilian defence agencies, as well as the intelligence community from NATO nations, to gain an operational advantage by efficiently deploying the data that is available to them. Moreover, the conference will look to present how Artificial Intelligence and machine learning will modernize the defence field.
The Summit will bring together leaders and experts from military organisations, government intelligence services, and civilian defence agencies, combined with technical experts on data analytics, and specialists from the industry. A discussion with all these constituents will establish how the immense amount of unstructured data available today can be turned into actionable intelligence.
