USGIF’s Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Working Group (MLAIWG) held its inaugural meeting March 16 at Riverside Research’s office in Arlington, Va.
Nearly 30 government and industry participants engaged in energetic discussions and heard from speakers representing the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). The group specifically talked about federal agency needs, the implications of machines performing roles previously performed by people, and how emerging capabilities can be brought to bear on near-term hard problems facing the Intelligence Community. MLAIWG members are in the process of finalizing the working group’s charter as well as the group’s schedule of activities for the GEOINT 2017 Symposium.
“I was very encouraged by the turnout at our inaugural meeting,” said Ted Josue, MLAIWG co-chair. “After hearing from the government representatives, I am more convinced than ever of the need and relevance of this working group for the GEOINT Community.”
