Anthony Robbins, vice president of public sector at NVIDIA, received his third Wash100 Award for driving data use and innovation in artificial intelligence within federal agencies and across the federal sector.
Over the past year, Robbins has remained vocal on the importance of federal agencies leveraging the capabilities of AI, data and robotic process automation (RPA) to manage mundane tasks and allow employees to focus on mission-critical functions.
“We are at the forefront of the fourth industrial revolution, where intelligent machines will help humans with repetitive, mundane tasks, allowing people to focus on higher skilled, mission-critical job functions,” Robbins explained in a blog post back in May 2020.
In addition, Robbins has also advocated for federal agencies to build relationships with the innovation community, systems integrators and universities to advance AI as well as the role of data in order to jumpstart these projects.
“It’s all about the data. Luckily, our government is the largest producer of data in the world and we need that foundation to feed any AI algorithm,” Robbins said.
Most recently, Robbins said that industry must help the government quicken the pace of artificial intelligence development and scaling. He argues that the government’s outreach efforts to startups can help agencies achieve their goals in AI development encompassing factors such as data, infrastructure, use case and talent.
“[AI] is the largest technology transformation that the federal government has ever undertaken,” said Robbins. “And [there are] compelling reasons why it is so big, why it is so now, and why the government has to go much faster.”
Executive Mosaic congratulates Anthony Robbins and NVIDIA on his third Wash100 Award. Robbins is one of the strongest advocates for artificial intelligence innovation in the federal market and remains one of the major driving forces towards the development of the technology to help the U.S. military, federal agencies and the civilian sector.
