ISC Briefing on Information Overload

The concept of Information Overload can apply to all organisations. With the amount of available data growing exponentially this is a risk to all organisations in all sectors. MOD has access to a vast amount of data in both the business and operational space with the challenge now to utilise this data to improve efficiency and efficacy. This techUK briefing will examine how emerging technologies such as data analytics and AI, along with improved processes and structures, may help MOD and its partner organisations to improve operational capability through better utilisation of data.

The security restrictions of Defence means that often data is not always able to be shared, is siloed by command, function or is commercially sensitive. With better understanding there remains potential for greater efficiency and enhanced capability in a wide range of areas. Attendees will examine where this potential can best be liberated using a number of emerging technologies in the AI and analytics sectors. The human element will be discussed in terms of how improved exploitation of data resources can lead to better decision making and can make available resources in traditionally dull but time consuming tasks. How digital technologies can be pulled through from other sectors and applied to Defence will be a key area of discussion, hearing from some exemplars of best practice and discussing shared challenges.

We are delighted that Brigadier Thomas Copinger-Symes, Information Manoeuvre Project Team Leader, Army will be joining us as a speaker.

We will also be approaching further speakers in the build-up to the event.
