Why Should you Attend this Year's Summit:

This educational Symposium brings together those in the IC, military, academia, and industry to discuss the latest challenges and opportunities surrounding Big Data Analytics. By effectively and efficiently taking on the vast amounts of disparate data collected from various government sources, the IC and DoD can proactively enhance decision-making. With the advancing of innovative predictive analytic technologies, it allows the Warfighter to have a more decisive advantage at the tactical edge.

In modern times, there are massive quantities of data collected each and every day, with the potential to be turned into relevant, timely, and “actionable data.” When actionable data can be exploited and turned into actionable intelligence for those in the IC and on the battlefield, the nation can form more accurate, mission-critical decisions. These data-driven decisions are important to enable every organization’s mission. Big data analytics paired with human judgment allows the IC to provide an effective blueprint for national security.

The Big Data for Intelligence Symposium will provide senior level discussions surrounding updates and new developments on technologies and predictive analytical approaches to effectively analyze and exploit large data sets. Leaders will discuss the significant benefits and varying techniques of using big data and predictive analytics to maximize the collection of actionable intelligence for mission success.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summit's content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the community from operational leaders, the R&D Community, key policy-makers, as well as solution providers from industry and academia. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all involved organizations bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.

New Topics For This Year's Symposium Include:

  • - Utilizing Big Data Analytics capabilities to maximize insights from large, disparate data

  • - Developing a strategic data framework for increased collaboration and intelligence sharing

  • - Exploiting big data analytics for improved data collection and enrichment

  • - Integrating Big Data technologies to enhance Warfighter capabilities

  • - Leveraging advanced algorithms using data analysis and PI in an effort to monitor global terrorist activities

  • - Facilitating ways to reduce the Army data center’s footprint to enhance DoD intelligence efforts

  • - Integrating Big Data Platform’s open source and unclassified components to assist in Army decision-making

  • - Delivering real time, effective big data analysis for the commanders of operation centers

  • - Facilitating New, Innovative Technologies to Ensure a Decisive USMC Advantage
