AI/ML and Big Data
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) are changing the way data is collected, stored and analyzed. The new technology landscape has impacts for citizens, law enforcement and public safety. The LEAPS technology event will look at best practices for turning endless data points into actionable intelligence and will discuss ways that local, state and national agencies need to work together to have coordinated policies and operating procedures to benefit the communities they serve.
This typically local event is one of the best law enforcement conferences of the year and is open to government and military attendees for free. AFCEA members can join for just $149 and non-members can join for $199.
According to the organization's website, the "12th annual LEAPS Technology Forum, AFCEA Bethesda provides an interactive environment in which government and industry stakeholders share ideas and experiences on what is needed to achieve the insight, collaboration and agility to protect the homeland and all of its communities. We'll look at the role of technology in meeting this vision, and explore potential solutions to the common challenges of:
- Using artificial intelligence and machine learning to develop better collection, sharing and use of data
- Enabling greater collaboration across federal, state and local agencies in all aspects of law enforcement and public safety
- Increasing the agility of agencies to respond to and manage significant events or crises
