DANC Science & Technology Forum with Dr. Colleen McCue and Dr. Stephen Lee
Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at 10:00am
Our keynote presenters are Dr. Colleen McCue and Dr. Stephen Lee.
How can we use more data science, less fiction to realize the promise of advanced analytics? Keys for me are moving beyond the junk science, snake oil and hype in support of effective, meaningful and responsible use of advanced analytics (including AI, ML, DL, etc) to achieve decision/competitive advantage. In my experience, the tech and math are necessary but not sufficient to achieving this goal. Gain more insights from Dr. Colleen Kelly.
Dr. Colleen “Kelly” McCue is a Principal Data Scientist with CACI International, where she brings more than twenty years of experience in data science and operational security analytics to the special missions community. Dr. McCue earned her doctorate in psychology from Dartmouth College, and completed a five-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Medical College of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University.
Dr. Stephen Lee will provide an update on Army Research and Army SBIRs and offer any relevant comments on advanced analytics that related to Army Futures published wish lists.
Dr. Stephen Lee is the Senior Scientist at the U.S. Army Research Office (AR), U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Development and Engineering Command. Lee’s responsibilities as chief scientist are to build international science and technology alliances; lead efforts to model materials by design; and implement research that takes into account Soldiers’ protection and lethality needs in future conflicts. He has authored 33 scientific technical publications and two scientific books; and co-edited one other book. “I did quite a few things over a few years, but what I take pride in is transitioning basic research into something revolutionary that can save Soldiers’ lives on the battlefield,” Lee said.
