The Defense Intelligence Agency will host a two-day event at its Washington headquarters in August to gather technology ideas from industry and academic professionals in the artificial intelligence and machine learning areas.

DIA said Thursday its innovation office aims to identify new technologies and business processes as well as introduce attendees to the agency’s Innovation Hub environment during the Industry Day series scheduled for Aug. 2 and 3.

IHUB is designed to virtually connect entrepreneurs in a collaborative environment for testing and evaluation of intelligence platforms.

“Innovation is happening in the private sector, so we want to leverage that to bring them into our agency and see how we can transform what we’re doing in the defense intelligence enterprise,” said Robert Dixon, special adviser for innovation at DIA.

The agency seeks AI and machine learning tools that can support automated reporting, data transformation, database development, information monitoring and thematic data management activities.

Interested vendors and members of the academia can submit concepts to the DIA in accordance with the “NEED 99 – Other Innovative Capabilities” list on the agency’s NeedipeDIA website.
