How the Military is Unleashing Artificial Intelligence Startups in Texas
August 29, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Please join the Defense Innovation Unit to learn the story behind how an Artificial Intelligence startup won a $1 million contract to bring its predictive maintenance tech to the Army, only 60 miles away at Fort Hood. The Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) is helping the Army modernize by bringing advanced commercial artificial intelligence (AI) tools to bear against readiness challenges in the Bradley Fighting Vehicle fleet at Fort Hood, Texas. This technology will monitor the condition of the vehicles and predict failures, which may save hundreds of millions of dollars in unscheduled maintenance costs. Join us to learn more about how the Defense Innovation Unit has made it possible for startups with the best technology to tackle the toughest challenges in the military, and network with like-minded entrepreneurs, technologists, community leaders, and government representatives. Texas BBQ, drinks, and 3D-printed robots will be provided by Capital Factory.
