Join the Air Force Research Laboratory and Innovare Advancement Center for the virtual Trusted AI at Scale event!

Powered by the New York State Technology Enterprise Corporation (NYSTEC), an AFRL Information Directorate (RI) Partnership Intermediary, this event will bring many of the best and brightest minds together from across the global science and technology (S&T) ecosystem to explore cutting-edge ideas populating Trusted AI research today! Join technology leaders from government, academia, and industry (to include start-ups, entrepreneurs, researchers, and students) as we further examine the opportunities and challenges associated with fielding artificial intelligence systems that are safe, secure, robust, capable, and effective.

This event is one piece of the larger Air Force S&T ecosystem designed to attract, develop, and retain exceptional talent in support of the nation. We invite you to join our innovative, risk-taking, and collaborative environment so that together we can drive impactful technology advancements at speed. The contracts, partnerships, and networks forged by this event are only the beginning and a small part of the valuable connections that will continue to organically mature and grow as we research, develop, and acquire AI capabilities for our country’s safety, security, and advancement.

There’s no limit to what you’ll take away from this event. You’ll get to:
* Join the Trusted AI at Scale virtual community platform.
* Tune in to live presentations from distinguished keynote speakers.
* Get answers to your pressing questions directly from government and industry leaders.
* Network one-on-one with other attendees and/or participate in networking groups before, during, and after the event.
* Access a plethora of event materials, resources, and presentations.
* Meet the small businesses that will receive funding for their AI technologies.
* And no event would be complete without a virtual swag bag!

The Trusted AI at Scale event will culminate in the awarding of more than $18 million to small businesses with game-changing AI technologies during the USAF SBIR/STTR Pitch Day and Trusted AI Challenge Series.

USAF SBIR/STTR AI Pitch Day
The USAF SBIR/STTR AI Pitch Day will award over $18M to proposals on the topic of trusted artificial intelligence, which indicates systems are safe, secure, robust, capable, and effective. Selected small businesses will be awarded to execute their proposals and continue their research and development.

Trusted AI Challenge Series
The Trusted AI Challenge Series is a collaboration between AFRL, The State University of New York (SUNY), Innovare Advancement Center, NYSTEC, Griffiss Institute, and the National Security Innovation Network (NSIN). This challenge will award up to $925K to proposals that address the need for trustworthiness in dynamic, autonomous AI systems. Teams will self-organize and propose a short-term, high-velocity sprint to explore various aspects of the challenges presented. Selected teams will be awarded to execute their proposals.

We're taking AI places it has never been before. Become a key member of the ecosystem on July 26-28, 2021!
