Join C_TEC and BSA | The Software Alliance for AI Summit: Investing in Innovation and Tomorrow's Workforce, an event building on the momentum of the White House’s recent Summit on Artificial Intelligence.

We will explore two key areas that are central to U.S. competitiveness and which require important contributions from government, industry and academia. Discussions will focus on the role of R&D in spurring AI innovation as well as efforts to ensure the U.S. workforce is equipped for the jobs of tomorrow.
