Healthcare, AI, Robotics, and The DoD

  • 2PM - 3PM | Hilton
  • Presented by AFWERX

State investment in novel and emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and robotics presents a unique advantage to the U.S. — notably in terms of healthcare. Whether it be improving diagnosis accuracy, connecting healthcare providers with patients, bettering mental health services, or performing micro-surgery, the opportunities for development are seemingly endless. With a marketplace as large as the Department of Defense, now is a prime opportunity for entrepreneurs, researchers, and engineers to apply their capabilities to service members and others in need. You must have a SXSW to attend any SXSW Official Events. As well, make sure you have applied to be a VIP at Capital Factory House.

Fuel Startups & Innovation thru State Investment

  • 12:30PM - 1:30PM | Hilton
  • Presented by AFWERX
  • Warfare today is online, in space—everywhere. And the blistering pace of digital technology is driving it. Keeping pace with commercial tech trends is no small task for the military, but Will Roper is no stranger to innovation in government. Once running the Pentagon’s secret innovation office (where he built sci-fi tech like swarming hive-mind drones), he’s now in charge of all Air Force and Space Force programs. Come hear how he’s helping the military prepare for eCombat: warfare in the digital age of AI and 5G. New partnerships with tech startups, creating a militarized internet of things, digital twins, and even commercial flying cars are just some of the initiatives changing how the military prepares for future conflict.
