AI Transformation of Defense Companies:
AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology is transforming every industry including companies in the Defense Sector. Join Dayton Defense on 9 October, for insights from the Air Force Research Lab's Dr Steve Rogers, leader of the Air Force ACT3 (Autonomy Capability Team 3). His team's ‘lessons learned' will provide guidance for defense companies attempting to use AI in 1) mission effects, 2) Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR), and in 3) revolutionizing DOD business processes.
Dr. Steve "Cap" Rogers is a Senior Scientist (ST) at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) where he serves as the principle scientific authority for Autonomy. As the Autonomy ST, Dr. Rogers leads the newly initiated AFRL Autonomy Capability Team (ACT3) in the rapid advancement of autonomy R&D. Dr. Rogers also leads multi-Directorate coordinated autonomy R&D including the Autonomy in Motion (AiM) and Autonomy at Rest (A@R) portfolios. His personal research has focused on QUalia Exploitation of Sensing Technology (QuEST), how to build autonomous systems by replicating the engineering characteristics of consciousness. After retiring from active duty in the Air Force, Dr. Rogers founded a company (iCAD) for developing practical applications of advanced information processing techniques for medical products. The company invented the world's most accurate computer aided detection system for breast cancer. He has over 150 technical publications and more than 20 patents.
