PROFESSOR MARY CUMMINGS

PROFESSOR MARY "MISSY" CUMMINGS
Professor, Duke University and Director, Humans and Autonomy Laboratory

The Future of Artificial Intelligence and Logistics

Mary "Missy" Cummings, Professor at Duke University Pratt School of Engineering, the Duke Institute of Brain Sciences and Director of the Humans and Autonomy Laboratory and Duke Robotics, began her career as a naval officer and military pilot from 1988-1999, and was one of the Navy's first female fighter pilots. She is the co-chair for the World Economic Forum's Council on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, as well as a member of the US Department of Transportation's advisory committee for autonomous transportation. She will outline how to conceptualize and leverage the strengths and limitations of both humans and artificial intelligence such that humans harness the raw computational power of computers, while applying inductive reasoning for potentially creative, out-of-the-box thinking for the increasingly complex logistics challenges of the future.



MAJOR MJ HEGAR

MAJOR MJ HEGAR
Former Air National Guard Pilot and Author

Be the Change

Major Mary Jennings "MJ" Hegar is a hero twice over—As a pilot, she was awarded both the Purple Heart and the Distinguished Flying Cross with Valor Device for saving her team from Taliban capture after their Medevac helicopter was shot down, and as the soldier who challenged the Combat Exclusion Policy which prevented women from entering direct combat—winning women the right to serve on the front lines for the first time. Hegar also recently authored, Shoot Like a Girl, a soon-to-be major motion picture. Combining harrowing war stories and practical advice on leadership, diversity, teamwork, and motivation, she will reveal how to be a catalyst for change on a large scale, be it in your career, at home, or on a national or global level. When someone tells you that something cannot be done, she says, the only way to prove them wrong is to do what they believe to be impossible.
