McLean, Va. —Machine intelligence, powered by deep learning and other advanced computing techniques, will enable the future workforce to securely process vast amounts of data and make more precise, accurate decisions without wasting valuable resources. At the 2018 NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference, Booz Allen Hamilton was recognized with the Americas 2017 NVIDIA Partner Network (NPN) Consulting Partner of the Year Award. The award honors Booz Allen Hamilton for its consulting contributions over the past year in helping expand NVIDIA Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions in North America. This is the first time these Awards have been presented in the Americas since the NVIDIA Partner Network began three years ago.
Booz Allen Hamilton and NVIDIA have worked together since 2015 on a variety of initiatives that leverage NVIDIA’s GPU technology. Notably, Booz Allen Hamilton is one of six companies in the world that has obtained certification as NVIDIA “Service Delivery Partner” and is currently the only federal provider. Further, NVIDIA will certify Booz Allen trainers for their Deep Learning Institute, positioning Booz Allen as one of ten training providers in the world and their first provider in the Federal market with joint commitment to train thousands of Federal employees. This hands-on training will help the U.S. Federal government apply deep learning techniques to key challenges in healthcare, defense and cybersecurity; and ultimately identify risks before they happen, capitalize on trends that could save lives, and be more precise and accurate in decision-making and outcomes.
“While the necessary changes to becoming a machine intelligent operation may be overwhelming for an organization and its workforce, it is necessary to operate efficiently and securely in a data-driven world,” said Dr. Josh Sullivan, senior vice president, who leads Booz Allen Hamilton’s data science and advanced analytics capabilities. “We are honored to partner with NVIDIA to further innovation that will fundamentally change the way we accomplish daily tasks and create a world in which data and machine intelligence work together for the greater good.”
“GPU-enabled workflows are becoming increasingly common for early adopters of AI,” said Craig Weinstein, vice president, Americas Partner Organization, NVIDIA. “Booz Allen Hamilton has driven mutual engagements helping customers understand the value of AI and its impact on their business, delivered Deep Learning Institute training, and are also developing unique solutions with NVIDIA to target cyber security.”
