Download the tentative agenda here. (Updated 23Jan. Agenda reflects Monday and Tuesday only. The agenda for Wednesday and Thursday will be made available to attendees.)

The NAML workshop is an opportunity for researchers from Navy research and development centers and our partner organizations to exchange technical ideas and to come together as a team.

The goals of NAML are:

  • To spread awareness of current machine learning research relevant to Naval applications
  • To connect machine learning researchers with experts in military requirements
  • To build and strengthen collaborations within the defense research community

Our focus this year is on identifying future directions of ML and AI research needed to address mission priorities of both the Navy and the broader national security community.

"What we do as a Navy is a human business. Don’t pass up an opportunity to come together as a team. Don’t pass up leadership opportunities, and don’t outsource them to a PowerPoint. If you have an opportunity to come together as a team, to increase belonging, do it."

Admiral John M. Richardson, 31st Chief of Naval Operations
