HPC for Improved Mission Delivery & National Security

High performance computing can revolutionize the AI race by supercharging algorithmic computing power. Researchers and HPC pioneers in government will discuss how HPC can improve agency mission delivery and boost national security efforts. 

-

The Future of AI and Cyberwarfare 

AI has the potential to change the way the warfighter engages in combat, but also the way nation-state actors and criminals attack U.S. critical infrastructure. AI leaders from DOD and CISA will discuss the ways AI is changing cyberwarfare and what the U.S. can do to fight back. 

-

Boosting the AI Workforce for National Security 

AI changes how crime, combat, and intelligence-gathering occur, so upskilling the federal workforce for AI is a national security imperative. AI leaders at DHS, DOD, NSF, and NSCAI will discuss how to chip away at the AI talent shortage and develop an AI-ready workforce to protect national security.
