Talks

Leveraging AI in Defence: Counter-Drones and Beyond by Gitarth Rajneesh Vaishnav

This talk highlights the strategic role of AI in defense, specifically focusing on counter-drone measures and the expansive potential beyond. We will discuss the critical importance of AI in identifying drone threats, followed by an overview of object detection as a pivotal AI capability. The conversation will then broaden to include TensorFlow, not just as a tool for object detection but as a versatile framework supporting various AI applications in defense. We will also cover the essential aspects of deploying AI technologies securely, leveraging Google Cloud's security tools. Real-world examples will underline the practical applications and challenges, setting the stage for a discussion on future AI-driven innovations in defense. Join us for a comprehensive exploration of how AI is reshaping defense operations, from the ground up to the digital cloud.
