This is a unique opportunity to join a CILT event held within the MOD’s new logistic centre of excellence at the Defence College of Logistics, Policing and Administration.  As well as an informative presentation on the use of advanced technology to enable cutting edge logistic planning, it will be a great event where members can network with Defence logistics instructors and students in state-of-the-art training facilities.

This event will allow members and other attendees to share professional and personal experiences with today’s military logisticians, demonstrate the real networking benefits of the CILT and learn something new about how Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are used in commercial logistics – and have been for more than a decade now. As well as providing a simple explanation of what Machine Learning really is (simple enough for even Chris to understand!), case studies of where different types of ML technology have been used to good effect will be given.

The Thames Valley Group are very keen to get back to face-to-face networking, and facilities will allow this with coffee and refreshments both before and after the presentation and Q&A, so bring your business cards with you and expand your professional network!  This is a hybrid event, meaning that those who cannot make it to the Defence College will be able to access the presentation (but not the Q&A or networking) on Zoom.  The presentation arena is large enough to allow social distancing, but numbers attending will be limited to ensure that current best practice coronavirus prevention measures can be maintained.

Attendees will need to pass vehicle details with their booking registration and bring photo identity to gain entry to the Defence establishment.  The delegate list will also be vetted by our hosts at DCLPA.  Bookings will close on 05 May 2022.

TVG are grateful to Brigadier Mike Caldicott, Commandant DCLPA for allowing us to join his logisticians and enjoy their facilities for this event.
