SUMMARY

Dave Marra leads AI and Mixed Reality initiatives at Microsoft. As a solutions-focused leader, he's dedicated to leveraging developments in ML technology to revolutionize the productivity of the most technologically underserved segment of the population-the frontline workers. Dave is focused on connecting modern day productivity tools to the people that actually use the tools: soldiers, facility workers, and a range of technicians. In this talk observe why Dave challenges the notion of a paradigm shift away from hardware to privilege software as he describes a deeply interdependent relationship between the two, and increased access and availability to hardware. AI Exchange will also host special guest, Mark Valentine, former US Air Force Commander, and General Manager of National Security at Microsoft, where Mark and Dave were colleagues. Hosted by Scale's Director of Machine Learning and Engineering, Elliot Branson, this is sure to be an unforgettable talk that will open our eyes to the ways AI can elevate the quality of life and productivity for everyday people performing the work that keeps our society running.
