Emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and M2M offer much potential for functions across the defence sector. In the short and medium term it is clear that the most achievable opportunities exist in support functions.
This techUK briefing will examine the opportunities across Defence where these emerging technologies could be implemented now (or in the near term), offering increased capabilities, efficiency and the potential for cost savings. These include functions across all frontline commands and in main building, particularly in areas such as HR, people management, logistics and administration. These innovations are not replacements for people but can act as technological tools to increase capacity for time consuming tasks and allow for improved performance. Attendees will include a range of stakeholders including Primes, SMEs and Officials and will have the opportunity to engage with speakers through active discussion and Q&A.
Confirmed speakers at this early stage are:
Danny Wootton, Head of Innovation Strategy, ISS
Mike Feltham, Head of Innovation Realisation, ISS
