Alion Announces Platinum Sponsorship of GTC DC 2018: Bringing Practical Artificial Intelligence Solutions to Government at the Premier GPU Conference
Following the unveiling of its new capabilities in artificial intelligence (Ai), Alion Science and Technology, headquartered in McLean, Va., has announced its role as a Platinum Sponsor of GTC DC 2018, part of NVIDIA’s premier GPU Technology Conference series.
“GTC DC is a place for serious technologists and government leaders to connect and learn about the newest advancements in deep learning, artificial intelligence, and so much more,” said Alion Chief Technology Officer Todd Borkey. “Our decision to sponsor this event was driven by two things: A belief that we are uniquely positioned to help federal agencies cut through the noise surrounding Ai and drill down on solutions that make sense for their missions, and a deep respect for the technology that NVIDIA brings to the table.”
Several of Alion’s deep learning technologies will be on display at the event, which focuses attention on the public sector and the problems facing the federal government that Ai can help to address. In addition, Mr. Borkey will be joined by Alion’s Director of Artificial Intelligence Chris Milroy in a session, “Engineering, Not Magic,” to present a three-part recipe that government leaders can use to assess a problem’s Ai readiness, effectively target investments, and preempt the challenges that many organizations face when implementing Ai.
“We believe Alion has the potential to help bring Ai to critical agencies with practical, real-world applications,” said Anthony Robbins, NVIDIA VP of Public Sector. “We are thrilled to have them as Platinum Sponsors for this year’s event, in addition to partnering with them on several programs we think will make a real impact for the federal government.”
