International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Information Applications in Homeland Security

PDF report of the Workshop


Artificial intelligence, especially machine-learning and deep learning, has the potential to help find new solutions to complex problems much faster than humans can. Quantum computing can develop solutions to problems that were previously considered too computationally complex to even have solutions. The importance of critical infrastructures to the Homeland Security Enterprise cannot be overestimated, which makes a means of exploring how security and resiliency might be enhanced through AI and quantum computing of significant value. 

Through presentations, panels, and open forums, this workshop will enable discussion among DHS and DRDC, industry, and academia on how AI and QC could affect the future of infrastructure security and public safety and how those affects may change the operational posture of homeland security and defense agencies in the short, mid, and long term time horizons.  Gaps and opportunities identified in this initial workshop will serve as a starting point for DHS and DRDC to explore potential complementary, working level strategies between agencies. Scribes will be present to record the discussion (with non-attribution), to support development of a workshop report.
