Mark Knapp, VP Defense & Intelligence at Preligens participated in the writing of the USGIF white paper: The State of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) in the GEOINT Community and Beyond.
"This USGIF whitepaper is intended for government and industry leaders involved in the defense, intelligence, and specifically the Geospatial-Intelligence (“GEOINT”) community with an interest in AI/ML. The paper will provide an overview in AI/ML capabilities currently in China, Russia, and other actors. The paper will highlight several problem sets today in GEOINT, namely current capability gaps in the GEOINT community, with discussions on US policy, leadership, and culture around AI/ML. The paper will provide ideas on how to address the AI/ML gap with workforce training, leadership backing, and culture shifts. Finally, the paper concludes with several GEOINT-based AI/ML use cases."
