On June 27, 2018, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, then deputy secretary, announced the establishment of the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center to accelerate the delivery of AI-based capabilities. Dana Deasy, DoD chief information officer, was tasked with leading JAIC, which will advance collaboration within “DoD, across government, and with industry, academia, and U.S. allies to strengthen partnerships, highlight critical needs, solve problems of urgent operational significance, and adapt AI technologies for DoD missions.”

Join the Potomac Officers Club to hear Dana Deasy and other public and private sector leaders discuss government AI priorities and programs as well as future initiatives.

The summit will feature panel discussions on AI procurement and the technology’s role in mission support. GovCon executives will also discuss how industry can leverage AI to stay ahead of the curve.
