Why Should You Attend The Symposium?This educational symposium allows US military commands, government agencies, academia, and technology providers the chance to have an open discussion about the technological solutions and best practices that make it easier for members of the IC to share and safeguard valuable information through an integrated intelligence enterprise.
In recent years, the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) has rapidly evolved to perform new missions. Members of the IC have developed new capabilities and adapted their business processes, especially in support of joint and complex military and National security operations. Contemporary and future intelligence gathering capabilities have created an increased need to process, exploit, and disseminate intelligence faster in order to support complex counter-terrorism, military, and national defense priorities.
In the coming decade, one of the Intelligence Community's greatest challenges will involve developing the capabilities to collect and analyze big data. Today, the information collected yields not simply a quantitative increase in information, but a qualitative change in how we create new knowledge and understand the world.
