The health and well-being of our employees, customers, partners and communities are top priorities for World Wide Technology and we have continued to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-9) outbreak closely.
In full alignment with World Wide Technology, we have collectively made the decision out of an abundance of caution to postpone AI Industry Day which was previously scheduled for Thursday, March 19, 2020.
Your interest in the AI Industry Day is highly appreciated. Please look for further communications as we finalize our future event date, as our goal is to reschedule the event.
As this situation evolves, we are committed to limiting the spread of the virus and safeguarding the health of our communities.
Join government and industry leaders and learn how to improve your organization's AI and data maturity, resulting in better data policies and practices around individual programs.
Artificial intelligence has brought enticing new prospects for speed, accuracy, and connectivity to the government and businesses horizon. Agencies and companies have made strides in governed self-service access, alongside data security and reliability. Now, join World Wide Technology’s AI Industry Day to explore the final frontier in AI maturity.
At AI Industry Day, we’ll investigate the technology base of premier artificial intelligence capabilities, from algorithms to infrastructure. We’ll spotlight government agencies that developed new data practices in order to address operational pain points and advance toward AI maturity.

Freeport-McMoran Copper and Gold Inc. and the AI Journey
How should companies and organizations think about their AI journey? What are agile analytics, why are they exciting, and what role do they play in an organization's AI adoption? Hear about how Freeport-McMoran Copper and Gold Inc. made strategic decisions that propelled them along the AI development journey. Through dynamic use cases, they'll share how they invested in tech, people, and processes, and what they did to achieve the best returns on those investments.
Panel: Machines and the AI Journey
Government leaders are approaching AI strategically, both presently and looking toward the future. What levels of data are these agencies looking at, and how has that data built up? What successes have these agencies seen with strong foundations that they've built? What new developments are these leaders seeing on the horizon?
AI for Human Capital Development: Getting Smarter on Talent Acquisition
In today’s technology-driven economy, the federal workforce is under enormous pressure. The “shelf life” of skills continues to shrink, and automation and AI threaten to displace entire job categories. Hiring has never been more of a challenge as government agencies face massive skills shortfalls, and human capital leaders are focused on understanding which upskilling and education opportunities offer the strongest return on investment. As federal executives grapple with the future of work in a public sector context, some of the very same “disruptive” technologies also have the potential to help human capital leaders more effectively discover talent. This session will examine what the future holds for AI as a tool for human capital development with insights from technology leaders and educators who are pioneering this new approach to talent discovery.
Panel: Human Capital AI
Artificial intelligence is transforming the way that we hire, train, reskill, and upskill, throughout the public and private sectors. Government agencies are applying new AI and data tactics to human capital processes. What are other ways to think about adding data and analytics to disrupt existing processes? How can agencies measure and influence value-creation?

Presented by Digital Harmonics
PurePixel provides automated imagery, video, and real-time video stream processing to uniquely extract information, sharpen, and enhance imagery across the electromagnetic spectrum in challenging atmospheric (e.g. night-time collection, fog, dust clouds, rain, snow) and imaging (e.g. long range or out of focus collection) environments.
PurePixel executes these optimizations with low latency (<40ms door-to-door latency on 1080p30 video, <7ms SD video) and zero operator interaction required. Meant to fit easily into any on-prem, small-scale, or cloud processing workflow, PurePixel supports complete operation via its REST API, command-line interface, or pure-web user interface.
While PurePixel uses AI/ML to scene recognize the imagery type being processed for algorithm selection, all of the algorithms used to enhance the imagery utilize only brute-force non-data-modeled mathematical operations, which avoids the hallucinatory information-generative and bias-carry through aspects of data-modeled imagery enhancement techniques.

Natural Language Understanding on NVIDIA GPUs
Presented by NVIDIA
NVIDIA GPUs are the single common factor among AI developers worldwide across a variety of use cases. One particular use case, Natural Language Understanding is where many expect the next wave of AI breakthroughs to happen. In this demo, see how NVIDIA GPUs are accelerating a language model called BERT, which stands for Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers. BERT excels at allowing users to apply transfer learning to a pre-trained model, speeding up time to an operational AI language capability. We will also show how it is possible to deploy an AI model on a very small form factor GPU, called the Jetson, intended to run in disconnected, low power environments.
