The 'Digital Readiness' webcast series is a collaboration between the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) and the System Engineering Research Center (SERC). Each webcast was headlined by various SERC researchers throughout our network of collaborators. This webcast was the the seventh in the 9-part webcast series, which were centered around the following three themes:
- DIGITAL ENGINEERING
- DATA ANALYTICS
- AI & MACHINE LEARNING
The DAU Webcast "Digital Readiness: The Thinking System Quest" presented by Dr. Gregg Vesonder, Stevens Institute of Technology, is the kickoff to the three webcasts focused on AI & Machine Learning in this "Digital Readiness" series. The rest of the webcasts in this series can be viewed HERE.
Webcast Abstract: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) have had a fascinating evolution from 1950 to the present. This talk sketches the main themes of AI and machine learning, tracing the evolution of the field since its beginning in the 1950s and explaining some of its main concepts. These eras are characterized as “from knowledge is power” to “data is king”.
