The Northern Virginia Technology Council’s inaugural Impact AI 2019 summit on March 21 will gather technologists in government and tech executives from companies in the region making advancements in artificial intelligence.
The all-day event kicks off 7 a.m. at the Inova Center for Personalized Health Conference Center in Fairfax, Virginia, and will open with keynote speaker Toni Townes-Whitley, president of U.S. regulated industries at Microsoft.
Midmorning keynote speaker Rumman Chowdhury, global lead for responsible AI at Accenture Applied Intelligence, will discuss building ethical, responsible AI.

The MITRE Corp.’s Jay Crossler, chief engineer of operations, will present a cyber Tech Talk, and Booz Allen Hamilton’s Kirk Borne, principal data scientist and executive adviser, will talk about the real power of AI and how it can help us better understand our data. Attain Chief Innovation Officer Tim Pavlick will also host a Tech Talk on how AI can identify dangerous internet hate speech.

Panelists will talk about integrating AI and machine learning across various sectors — in smart cities, customer service, human capital management, defense and in the public sector. They’ll also discuss future applications and use cases of AI, and the challenges and risks that remain for adopting AI at enterprise scale.
