Tampa Bay, Florida – October 6, 2017. Torch AI, a leading provider of augmented intelligence platforms for the Fortune 500 and Federal Government, is proud to announce its selection as a 2017 DefenseTechConnect Innovation Award Winner.
Torch competed with an international field of high technology firms selected for the Defense Innovation Summit (DITAC). The company was ranked on the potential positive impact Torch applications have for the warfighter and national security. Torch’s increasing success has been a result of being laser focused on enabling a modular ecosystem approach that accommodates users, systems, and process. But our broad collective experience spans mission critical commercial enterprise and public sector deployments including the military’s research arm, DARPA. Torch is a software platform that handles massive datasets making unbelievably complex problems solvable through network or information centric entity intelligence. Travis Pickett, Managing Principal, Engineering said: "It is a great honor to even be considered for this award, let alone win against such impressive companies. Leading an engineering team that has such reach and global impact is a privilege. Our teams deserve great credit."Brian Weaver, CEO said: “We believe firmly we can make this world a better place by enabling the people out there working hard solving real problems. It is great for our associates to get recognition like this from esteemed organizations like DITAC.” Torch joined another local firm at the Summit, National Nuclear Security Administration’s Kansas City National Security Campus, operated by Honeywell. KCNSC is responsible for manufacturing and procuring nonnuclear components for nuclear weapons, including electronic, mechanical, and engineered material components.
About Torch AI
Torch AI is a rapidly deployable augmented intelligence platform that uses advanced technologies including dynamic crawling, data aggregation and graph engines with physics properties to provide an advanced automation and judgement solution within a convenient framework. Through the lens of real-time network resolution, outlier detection and change are identified and displayed, facilitating opportunities for improved judgement with outputs needed to measure and optimize performance. With built-in connections for entity search, classification and investigation modules, Torch can quickly and dynamically surface out-of-range risk scoring without manual intervention.
