During the event, Flournoy will discuss how the DoD can deter or defeat peer threats in contested multi-domain environments through AI and machine learning algorithms.

The algorithms will support robotic autonomous systems, miniaturized sensors, computing power and storage and secure autonomous communication networks to create human-machine teams bringing greater precision, certainty, speed and mass to the battlefield.
