What You'll Learn
A successful Augmented Intelligence strategy involves the use of multiple tools and capabilities, bringing technology and experts together, to effectively prioritize the most critical threats. Many military agencies and their partners lack the personnel to chase down every indicator of a threat given the massive datasets resulting from the collection process. Augmented human intelligence with technology is becoming the next best weapon in combating adversaries on social and digital channels.
This discussion will address the concept of Augmented Intelligence and ways that technology is being used to enhance decision-making confidence for military threat analysts and operators.
- Examples of military systems that use Augmented Intelligence
- What it takes to turn the vast sea of unstructured online content into structured, actionable threat intelligence
- The impact of Augmented Intelligence on intelligence reporting and personnel
