COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 8, 2019--Veritone Inc. (NASDAQ: VERI), the creator of the world’s first operating system for artificial intelligence, aiWARE™, today announced that its CEO and Chairman, Chad Steelberg, will be a featured presenter at CES Government 2019, a leading government technology summit for public sector executives to discuss key ideas and innovations critical to government.

Steelberg will serve as one of the keynote speakers presenting on the topic of “The Path to an AI-Connected Government.” For his part, Steelberg will focus on how artificial intelligence (AI) is being used in powerful new ways within public safety and the intelligence community to evaluate, expedite and even autonomously respond to critical security risks. Today’s most innovative AI applications not only empower and enable local, state, federal and international law enforcement to swiftly evaluate and course correct key missions and procedures, but are also paving the way for an AI-connected government, and ultimately a connected planet.
Amy Hess, Deputy Assistant Director for Cyber, U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, Teresa Carlson , General Manager and Senior Vice President, AWS Global Public Sector, and Adam Lee, Chief Security Officer, Dominion Resources, will also be presenting during the morning session.
“I am honored to be speaking to the top minds in government and technology about how AI is significantly improving productivity for government agencies by augmenting, for example, crime-solving, enhancing criminal case preparation and accelerating once-manual processes to deliver intelligence in record time,” added Steelberg. “I look forward to sharing specific use cases involving these AI applications, demonstrating the tangible and immediate benefits of a connected artificial intelligence government and explaining how our aiWARE platform is providing actionable intelligence, making our government more efficient and effective.”

About CES Government
CES Government is considered by many to be the premier annual government technology summit, where leaders in government and industry come together to have pivotal, game-changing discussions about mega technology trends in the public sector. Attendance is by invitation only and invitations are extended to senior level executives who make a difference in technology and innovation as applied to government and critical infrastructure.
Hosted annually by the Government Business Executive Forum (GBEF), CES Government is not a “sit and listen” type event. It includes a provocative lineup of speakers, interactive sessions, and engaging activities that encourage substantive discussions. The kind that builds relationships that extend beyond Las Vegas. It is the only government technology conference partnered with the world’s most prestigious annual technology showcase – CES.
CES Government is anchored in US Federal government but bolstered by state and local participation, U.S. partner nations, critical infrastructure companies, technology innovators and select subject matter experts.
