What does a yellow light mean to you? Stop, wait, or… go faster? Use the same analogy for technology advancements—should we approach innovation with creativity or caution? Booz Allen President and CEO Horacio Rozanski, along with thought leaders across the firm, joined government and industry leaders at this year’s Atlantic Festival (formerly Washington Ideas Forum) to weigh in on uniting technology and humanity as we create tomorrow together.
This year, Booz Allen was the innovation underwriter for the festival, which ran from October 2–4. We hosted four speaking sessions, plus hands-on demos and collaborative conversations showcasing DEXi (a cognitive digital solution), District Defend (Booz Allen’s workforce mobility solution), immersive training simulations, and a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) gesture detection demo at the Booz Allen Hamilton Innovation Zone—a block-wide space for live panels, tech showcases, and networking.
