    No doubt you’ve heard that the Army is undergoing its biggest transformational change since the 1970s. Emerging technologies like AI, hypersonics, machine learning, nanotechnology, and robotics are driving fundamental change in the character of conflict. To meet the demands of a rapidly evolving battlefield, the Army is exploring leap-ahead advances in technology, partnerships, and engagements.

    Until now, potential partners like yourself have been on the outside looking in.

    That changes March 16-18 with Global Force Next, an immersive virtual event to help you to learn about, connect, and network for all of the above. The information you’ll get will be up-to-date and tangible. The insights you’ll receive will be invaluable.

    The theme will be Protecting Tomorrow through Persistent Modernization. The program will focus on Project Convergence events highlighting Army modernization efforts at echelon for an era of competition among today’s great powers. Segments will include live panels, as well as updates for all 8 Cross-Functional Teams (CFTs.)

    Put Global Force Next on your calendar. And save yourself a front-row seat to the Army’s Future Force.

    Given the bipartisan recognition of the need for the United States to win our innovation competition with other nations such as China, it is critical that we develop and deploy our greatest technologies—including autonomous functionalities—to bolster our national security with greater target identification. To facilitate such development and deployment, this premier event focused on innovation in AI across the competition continuum convenes government, industry, and academia to develop the application of AI solutions, discover federal AI initiatives, and explore real-world AI technology.

    Why Attend?

    There are many questions about the application of AI throughout the national security enterprise that remain unanswered. However, subject matter experts and policymakers are working to ensure the efficient and detailed answering of those questions to further provide the best capabilities to our warfighters. Attend this event and you will obtain unparalleled access to key information and members of the AI community.

    • Learn from major AI influencers, innovators, and practitioners who are actively developing and deploying AI solutions that will define the future of national security.
    • Hear from Program Offices across government on their key requirements, planned initiatives, and acquisition priorities for AI.
    • Network with experts across government, industry, and academia while building your company’s visibility within the AI community.
