Why You Should Attend This Symposium:

In an increasingly inter-connected, data-driven, digital world, the Intelligence Community and DoD are facing information overload amidst rapidly evolving complex and challenging issues, threats, and risks. In this new era of strategic competition, the IC and DoD must accelerate the adoption of data, analytics, and AI to speed up the collection, accessibility, and exploitation of vast amounts of data in order to generate the decision and intelligence advantage.

Speakers and attendees at this year's Big Data for Intelligence Symposium will discuss challenges and opportunities to leverage data as a strategic and operational asset to enable the IC, DoD, and federal government to carry out their missions with speed and at scale. Key sessions will explore the newly released IC Data Strategy 2023-2025, which highlights to need to improve end-to-end data management, deliver data interoperability and analytics at speed and scale, advance partnerships across agencies, industry, and academia, and transform the talent and culture of the workforce to be empowered by data. This year's panel will explore the increasingly interconnected relationship between big data and AI, and how AI and advanced analytical capabilities are key to speeding up the processing, exploitation, and analysis of large volumes of data. Join us at this year's Big Data for Intelligence Symposium to learn from key leaders across the community how to harness the power of big data to deliver actionable insights and intelligence for strategic and operational decision-making.
