2024 IITSEC NBT AI Showcase

The recent proliferation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has created new possibilities for training data analysis, assessment, and adaptive learning. Combined with advances in cognitive science, AI enables sophisticated intelligent tutoring, the generation of tailored training content, and improved fidelity in training support agents. These capabilities form critical pillars for adaptive and personalized learning that can improve the ability of organizations to meet training requirements and develop technologies and strategies for using limited time and resources to meet the specific needs of individual military personnel and varying team structures. NATO is hosting this showcase event to compliment I/ITSEC’s annual Next Big Thing initiative. This smaller, more intimate event will provide a focused showcase of cutting-edge technologies (i. e., tools and methods) that leverage AI techniques applied specifically to military-centric use cases. The event will be executed in a 90-minute session that will take place in the Destination Lounge at the Orange County Convention Center To be considered for participation, complete the form on the Central Florida Tech Grove Website: https://www.centralfloridatechgrove.org/024-iitsec-nbt-nato-ai-showcase by 11:59 PM EDT of Friday, 19 July 2024. If you have questions, please contact this year’s Showcase Chairs: Benjamin Goldberg (benjamin.s.goldberg.civ@army.mil) and Diana Teel (diana.c.teel.civ@us.navy.mil)
