AI is not about man vs. machine. It’s about systems that can enable abundance and economic growth, leading to happier, more secure, and resilient societies. This virtual interactive session, presented by SparkCognition™, explores how AI is poised to reinvent the global supply chain by enabling distributed, more local and yet highly integrated systems of production and logistics.

By optimizing local production and supply and making it cost-competitive, AI systems can create new work opportunities in our towns and cities, enable greater national security, and deliver resilience against weather, pandemic, and economic shocks. Come join us to explore the new supply chain, powered by AI, at Time Machine: AI Sessions.

The old adage goes, “Amateurs discuss strategy, professionals talk logistics. ” There is no national defense without a resilient supply chain, yet high operational tempos and a shortage of qualified maintainers place increasing strain on legacy systems. AI-powered predictive maintenance ensures platform readiness so that military personnel can meet the demands of assigned missions.
