DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES AND FUTURE CONFLICT: INVESTING IN THE FUTURE OF DEFENCE
in DANUBE SPACE, RIVER PARK PLAZA
The roadmap for the maturation of disruptive technologies requires a smart investment strategy that manages the natural tension between requirement, capability, risk and cost. In the context of building a robust transatlantic defence of the future, innovations in autonomy, deep-learning systems, human-machine combat teaming and other next-gene ration technologies can shape the vision for the art of the possible. How do we characterize the most urgent common threats that disruptive technologies must resolve? What are the important emerging technology trends that could impact transatlantic defence? To what extent do we have viable approaches to evaluate where to make technology investments? How do we define the measures of success of these disruptive technology investments?
