DoD to Highlight Six Focus Areas at Annual AI Industry Day

Jeff Brody

The Department of Defense plans to cover six topics during an artificial intelligence-focused event that is scheduled to take place on Nov. 13 in Maryland.

A FedBizOpps notice posted Wednesday says that the third annual DoD AI Industry Day will focus on the areas of training data, algorithms, user interface and experience, data and interference, systems integration at the edge and testing.

The Army Research Laboratory will host the event with the Algorithmic Warfare Cross-Functional Team, or Project Maven, and the Pentagon’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center.

AWFCT and JAIC have created algorithms that work to process large volumes of DoD data. Both entities are looking to analyze the algorithms through AI approaches. Interested vendors are encouraged to send capability briefs by Nov. 14 if they cannot attend the industry day, which will feature discussions on AI software prototyping efforts.
