Experts Discuss Leveraging Big Data & Predictive Analytics for Intelligence Purposes

DSI’s Big Data for Intelligence Symposium is designed as an educational and training “Town Hall” forum that will provide members of the Intelligence Community, US military commands, government agencies, academia, and technology providers the opportunity to explore more effective and efficient ways of leveraging the power of big data for intelligence processing and exploitation purposes.

Alrington, VA, October 15, 2016 --( Defense Strategies Institute’s 4th Big Data for Intelligence Symposium, occurring on November 29-30, 2016, will provide members within the Intelligence Community the chance to have an open discussion about the challenges, opportunities, and technological solutions that exist when seeking to transform large quantities of disparate information into actionable intelligence. This educational forum will provide US military commands, government agencies, academia, and technology providers with the opportunity to explore more effective and efficient ways to leverage the power of big data for intelligence purposes.

The goal of this year’s forum is to create meaningful progress towards solving some of the complex issues that hinder the government’s ability to rapidly process and exploit the power of big data within an increasingly congested informational environment.

As intelligence analysts struggle to keep up with the exponential increase of raw information produced by rapid advances in data collection, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss innovative policies, research, and technological solutions that revolve around the central theme of: “Leveraging the Big Data Opportunity.”

2016 Keynote Speakers Include:
- Dr. Gregory Treverton, Chairman, National Intelligence Council
- Peter Highnam, Director, InnoVision, NGA
- Neil Ziring, Technical Director, Information Assurance Directorate, NSA
- Jeffrey Eggers, SES, Chief Technology Officer, DCS for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, USAF
- Jennifer Edgin, CTO, Marine Corps Intelligence
- Jerry Hill, Senior Technical Advisor, Technical Collection and Special Programs, OUSD(I)
