DoD, Silicon Valley, Hollywood: Hacking for Defense
The SXSW Conference brings together thought leaders, technologists, artists, performers and leaders from the worlds of business, politics and journalism to discuss, enlighten and share ideas that will shape the future.
On Monday, March 13, Alion CTO Christopher Zember leads a discussion with panelists from Hollywood, Silicon Valley and the world of national security. These forward thinkers will look at Hacking 4 Defense, a program piloted at Stanford University that aims to turn the usual, slow DoD procurement process on its ear, to produce effective tech solutions faster and more cost effectively than ever before.
Hacking 4 Defense is already showing the next generation of engineers and technologists that national security is a viable career path.
What’s next? Find out as Christopher and the panel ask – and answer – the tough questions about DoD innovation.
