This year's conference theme is "Technology in Focus." NATO Edge will feature discussions on the Agency's work on emerging and disruptive technologies, which include artificial intelligence (AI) and data.
We are looking forward to join this conference with a speaker session.
Excellence in Cyberspace Learning
In the context of fast-paced technology evolution and shorter technology lifecycles, education and training also needs to be dynamic. Education and training must be able to adapt flexibly to new technologies, while still achieving high levels of excellence aligned with the operational requirements and constraints. Digitization, augmented reality and high-performance wireless access networks provide instructors with new tools to facilitate cyberspace-focused learning.
This session will address emerging concepts and technologies that will support education and training in this dynamic defense environment.
