DAF’s first Data and AI Forum open for registration Published Aug. 3, 2022 Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs ARLINGTON, Va. (AFNS) -- The Department of the Air Force’s Chief Data and Artificial Intelligence Office is partnering with the Department of the Air Force-Massachusetts Institute of Technology Artificial Intelligence Accelerator to present its first Data and Artificial Intelligence Forum in Lexington, Massachusetts, Aug. 24-25. Brig. Gen. John M. Olson, the first DAF Chief Data and Artificial Intelligence officer, is accelerating the pace in which the Air Force fosters digital fluency and creates trusted, seamless integration of data and AI — providing dominance to the United States and its strategic partners. Modern warfare demands information at the edge — where it’s most vulnerable. For this cause, the Chief Data and Artificial Intelligence Office and Department of the Air Force-Massachusetts Institute of Technology Artificial Intelligence Accelerator are partnering to expedite the game-changing benefits of integrated data fabrics. This summit will feature subject matter experts who will share their vast knowledge of data, AI and analytics as a part of an effort to support initiatives like the Defense Department’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control and the Air Force’s Advanced Battle Management System to respond to a critical need, connecting sensors with shooters across all services in all domains.
