Defense Applications of AI (DAAI) Workshop

 Defense Applications of AI (DAAI) Workshop

Defence and Security systems are becoming more and more complicated and at the same time equipped with a plethora of sensing devices which collect an enormous amount of information both from their operating environment as well as from their own functioning. Considering the accelerating technology advancements of AI, it is likely that it will have a profound impact on practically every segment of daily life, from the labor market to doing business and providing services.  The security and defence sectors will not remain idle or unaffected by this technological evolution. On the contrary, AI is expected to transform the nature of future defence and security domains, because by definition defence and security forces are highly dependent on (accurate) data and (reliable) information.  The first Defence Applications of Artificial Intelligence (DAAI) Workshop aims at presenting recent evolutions in artificial intelligence applicable to defence and security applications.
