    Autonomy, Robotics and AI in the Future Force

    November 28, 2018 – November 29, 2018 at Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan

    This symposium will explore and showcase innovative ways the U.S. Army is developing critical capabilities in robotics, autonomy, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.  The goals are to explore how the Army-Industry team can best collaborate to achieve cost-effective, innovative solutions to military problems, seamlessly reallocate resources as conditions change, and with the speed and efficiency that adversaries cannot match.

    Support to America’s soldiers will be balanced, focused, and technologically superior in order to maintain superiority over any other force in the world.  Senior U.S. Army, Department of Defense, Industry and academic leaders, and other subject matter experts will provide dialogue and information on efforts to leverage autonomy the Army seeks to modernize and sustain the force –  and to win on any battlefield.

    The key objective of AUSA’s Army Autonomy and Artificial Intelligence Symposium and Exposition will be to provide an open forum for attendees to interact and participate in discussions about the Army’s efforts to develop autonomous capabilities in all domains. It will also provide a platform for industry partners to demonstrate breakthroughs that could help the U.S. Army take full advantage of this technologies across all Army requirements.
