DoD to hold Joint AI Center solutions meeting

On June 26, the Department of Defense posted a needs statement for the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center. Applications to present at the solutions meeting are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on July 26.

The Department of Defense’s (DoD Rapid Reaction Technology Office (RRTO) will conduct a Solutions Meeting on behalf of the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) in late Summer / early Fall 2019 in Northern, VA. The Meeting will provide selected innovative companies with an opportunity to make short technical presentations to government representatives about their technologies and products. There is a potential for companies to be selected for pilot projects or experimentation if their technology appears to match the DoD’s needs. 

The Cyberspace National Mission Initiative (NMI) of the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center is looking for technologies in the following areas that utilize or enable the application of Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning:

Autonomous Cyber Defense
