A group of our Colorado Springs team members had the opportunity to volunteer for the 2019 AFCEA Cyberspace Symposium. The theme for this year’s event was “Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence”.
The Symposium created a platform for industry and government workers to simultaneously solve the challenges of Cybersecurity, National Defense, and community cyber readiness.
We heard DoD and industry specialists discuss the premises of how Machine Learning and AI support Big Data and Cybersecurity. They focused on how to apply these technologies to gain advantage in Cyberspace Operations, today and in the future.
The event not only brought government and industry together to share ideas related to today’s cyber challenges, but it also made a difference in our region. AFCEA raised money for technology, engineering, STEM and science education, and the Symposium allowed them to give out over $100,000 in grants and scholarships to Colorado STEM students and teachers.
That’s not all, AFCEA also raised money for the local Air Force Association to help wounded airmen of Colorado cope with disabilities resulting from service to our country.
Blackstone is honored to have been a part of such an inspirational event!
