AI Applications in Military IoT – Invitation to a NATO/DefSec Workshop

A new series of workshops aimed at influencing and hopefully solving some of the hottest issues facing NATO right now is beginning on October 11. This is a fascinating set of discussions because each topic will tackle a concrete challenge that NATO needs to solve through collaboration and knowledge sharing to help reach a practical solution through awareness building. In the first of three workshops a panel of experts will discuss the role of AI in military IoT, looking specifically at the current uses and needs of the military and how AI can be employed to fulfil them. This is a half day event in Prague but you can also join via videoconference. More information can be found here.

A Look at the Learning Technology Supplier Landscape 

Learning technology uses a broad range of communication, information, and related technologies that can be used to support learning and training. As governments seek proven and innovative solutions to address the changing landscape, they are looking at every potential partner from larger, global companies to emerging startups that are rapidly building innovative solutions. The marketplace is changing fast so it can be a difficult task for procurement professionals to stay-in-the-know and acquire possible solutions. Join us for this webinar where we will take a look at the learning tech supplier landscape in the public sector and share tips for government contracting professionals on how to buy. Register here for next week - October 8 at 2pm ET
