ARLINGTON, VA (May 4, 2017) – LGS Innovations today presented its novel Controllable Document Transformation software solution to a panel of leading scientists, technologists, and engineers from the U.S. Government at the 2017 Innovators’ Showcase, an annual forum for promising technologies and independent research and development (IR&D) hosted by the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA).
LGS Innovations was selected to give one of 24 presentations at the Innovators’ Showcase, which provides an opportunity for organizations to present innovative concepts that can help keep America safe directly to a public sector audience.
The presentations, conducted at the TS/SCI level, annually draw scientists, technologists, and engineers from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), as well as other agencies that contribute to national security. INSA’s Technology and Innovation Council has hosted the Showcase – in collaboration with the ODNI’s Directorate of Science & Technology – since 2010.
“The opportunity to present our work at the Innovators’ Showcase is an honor,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “There is great potential for technical growth in a forum that fosters public-private dialog. At LGS we place a great deal of importance on knowledge sharing and innovation, and we value the benefit the event brings to overall IR&D efforts.”
Earlier this year, INSA sought unclassified abstracts on current, emerging, and potential solutions from academia and the private sector related to artificial intelligence and machine learning, cybersecurity and cyber operations, energy, the Internet of Things, sensing technologies, and other game-changing ideas. More than 110 abstracts were submitted to be considered for the 24 presentations, making 2017 the most competitive Showcase yet.
“The Innovators’ Showcase is one of the unique ways INSA brings the private sector, academia, and government together to explore and collaborate on solutions to national security challenges,” said Mr. Kelly, who also serves as chair of INSA’s Technology and Innovation Council. “We are pleased to see a record number of organizations express a desire to participate. Being chosen to present is a significant achievement, and contributions by these selected organizations greatly advance innovation in the Intelligence Community.”
