Session Two: Enabling AI/ML Transformation
Removing barriers for the next generation of AI/ML market impact

 

 

The unmanned vehicle industry is poised for exponential growth upon the maturation and continued commercialization of AI and ML technologies. Still, obstacles such as data privacy, cyber security, and legal and ethical implications must be overcome to enable this renaissance. Critical to this endeavor are the collaborative partnerships between government (policy makers and regulators), academia (research & policy exploration) and commercial interests, including legacy unmanned aviation companies, non-traditional aviation users and startups of all size.
This diverse group must align intent and resources under collaborative partnerships to enable AI/ML market transformation. This panel will discuss the current boundaries to further AI/ML commercialization and how the diverse group of stakeholders can pave a path to the future.

Session Three: Future AI/ML Markets
Defining the vision for future and the road map to get there

 

 

Realizing the next generation of AI/ML technologies begins with research taking place today. Visionaries from industry and academia are developing new algorithms and re-thinking markets to usher in the next big thing in AI and ML. Specifically, these vanguard companies are racing to mature machine learning and realize true "artificial intelligence", with the goals of creating new autonomous options for existing value chains and new sector opportunities altogether.
The speakers in this panel will share their experience from the front line of technology development, and answer both “How close are we to true AI” and “What revenue streams of the next generation of AI/ML technologists and entrepreneurs”.
