Technology Foresight Forum: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Autonomous Vehicles

S4E11 Logo-01.png

The Technology Foresight Forum was hosted earlier this year by the Stevens Institute of Technology Maritime Security Center (MSC)—a US Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Center of Excellence—and the NY/NJ Regional Metro Alumni Chapter of the Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS). This forum brought together a broad base of representatives from the public, private, and government sectors to engage in discourse on the capabilities and potential implications of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and autonomous vehicles on safety, security, and public policy. 

In addition to presenting at the forum, NJOHSP took Intelligence. Unclassified. on the road to talk to some of the forum participants, see how technology impacts each of their organizations, and learn what they hoped to get out of these artificial intelligence-related panels.
