Anthony Robbins, vice president of the federal business at NVIDIA, accepted his 2022 Wash100 Award, the highest honor in government contracting (GovCon), from Executive Mosaic CEO Jim Garrettson during a recent visit to the company’s office in Herndon, VA.
“Anthony Robbins is an artificial intelligence evangelist known to almost everyone in the Department of Defense or adjacent markets,” Garrettson said. “Anthony has earned both the recognition and tremendous respect not only for his irrepressible and larger-than-life personality, but also for his affiliation with companies of consequence in the GovCon industry.”
Executive Mosaic is pleased to recognize Robbins as a five-time recipient of the Wash100 Award for stewarding a new era of AI technology adoption in the U.S. government as well as utilizing his prolific social networking efforts to position NVIDIA as a true pioneer of edge processing, artificial intelligence, cloud enablement, and algorithm development.
As the federal VP for NVIDIA, Robbins works alongside the federal government, including the state and local governments, higher education, and research universities, to serve the company’s customers in their greater enterprise goals and AI implementation efforts.
Robbins brings more than 30 years of experience providing IT solutions and innovation for our nation’s warfighters and citizens in their advanced cyber capabilities and mobility as well. Robbins has been instrumental in the delivery of more than $15 billion in revenue in the federal landscape.
“Over his decades of assiduous pursuit of mission, Anthony has utilized social media, trade shows, and personal appearances to provide connective tissue and build a great community supporting our nation’s relentless endeavor to emerge as the winner of the great AI global power competition,” Garrettson added.
Most notably, the five-time Wash100 Award winner commented on a recent partnership with Lockheed Martin to use artificial intelligence and digital-twin simulation to help federal and state forest service organizations better understand wildfires.
“Through this continued partnership, Lockheed Martin engineers will be able to process data and make predictions through the [Cognitive Mission Manager platform] from an active wildfire observed by the aircraft in real-time to assist the onboard fire responders,” Robbins explained.
The partnership also established a Silicon Valley-based AI development laboratory that will use a Lockheed-made end-to-end planning and orchestration system and NVIDIA’s expertise in data analysis and simulation.
“The lab will serve as an open collaboration space for industry and users to concentrate talent and resources for CMM design and rapidly develop prototypes in NVIDIA Omniverse,” Robbins commented.
Executive Mosaic is pleased to recognize NVIDIA and Anthony Robbins as a 2022 Wash100 Award recipient. His contributions to the GovCon community and accomplishments in the federal landscape deserve to be recognized with the highest honor in the GovCon industry which seeks to recognize the most significant executives of consequence for the coming year.
