On June 11-12, 2019, global leaders from government, education, and nonprofit organizations came together for the tenth annual AWS Public Sector Summit in Washington, DC. Novetta participated in two speaking sessions. On Wednesday, June 12th, Chris Doty from AWS, introduced Novetta’s Steve Adelman and Matt Johannesson when they presented: From Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS) to Installations; Leveraging AWS IoT for Effective, Flexible Sensing. The session was recorded and is available for screening here:
In Novetta’s both, our subject matter experts demonstrated:
- Novetta Entity Analytics
- Natural Language Processing
- And an interactive demo using a Novetta machine learning prototype, running on a Raspberry Pi and AWS Snowball Edge, that securely searched an encrypted watchlist without ever decrypting the data. Read more about this demo here.
Later on Wednesday, our customer Chuck Na, Interagency Policy Specialist from NIST Technology Partnership Office joined Novetta VP, Engineering, Jeremy Glesner and Principal Software Engineer, Steven Collier on stage for their presentation titled Building a Commercial Marketplace for Government using AWS Services.
In this session, attendees heard from National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as they detailed how they leveraged AWS cloud services to elevate their mission of helping promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing technology in ways that enhance economic security and quality of life. Two bureaus across the Dept. of Commerce partnered with Novetta to bring to market a commercially available marketplace, with the goal of it becoming a self-sustaining business over time. Novetta illustrated how the innovative Epiphany IP Marketplace came to life in less than one year by using AWS services such as DynamoDB, Lambda, Cognito, Sagemaker, Cloudfront, and several others as the architectural foundation. Epiphany IP Marketplace launches in October on AWS to hundreds of thousands of invited participants across the U.S., making the results of federal R&D accessible to wider audiences, and thus accelerating further innovation.
