Big Data For Defense & Intelligence Symposium

19 March, 2014 - 20 March, 2014, Washington, DC, United States

Big Data for Defense, Intelligence, and Homeland Security

Today’s Warfighter has access to an ever-increasing number of sensors, imagers, internet artifacts, open source and other sophisticated collection devices and mechanisms, to the point that a major challenge has become how to sift through this massive amount of information to find the most critical and actionable items of intelligence. Increasingly, this must be accomplished in near-real time and the information must be packaged in a format capable of being shared with all other pertinent parties. The result is that sensor, computer and communication technologies are being strained beyond capacity to keep pace with current and future information management and analysis needs. ‘Big Data’ tools, techniques, and technologies seek to provide the means to analyze, exploit and share conclusions drawn from this seemingly overwhelming information load.

This outstanding symposium brings together the key government and industry experts who are shaping the direction of big data research and development for defense and homeland security.

  • What are the latest DoD, Intelligence Community, and Homeland Security needs and initiatives in big data?
  • How is big data analytics being applied to ISR, intelligence sharing, GEOINT fusion, video analytics, atmospherics, identity, biometrics, and a whole range of other critical mission applications?
  • What role are new tools, techniques, and technologies – predictive analytics, cloud computing, metadata, etc. – playing in making big data analytics a reality? What are the future challenges and opportunities?
  • What are the future challenges and opportunities?  What role(s) can industry play?

These and many other critical questions will be examined during this outstanding two-day event.

Over 20 Top Experts from OASD/R&E, DHS, NGA, DIA, SAF/A9, OUSD-I, ONR, INSCOM, Army G-3/5/7, AFRL, CAA, CIA, DISA, NSF, IBM, Unisys, Booz Allen Hamilton, 2bSecure, Elder Research, and Machine Analytics
