Accenture Federal Services has tapped Jennifer Sample to lead applied intelligence growth and strategy, after she joined the team earlier this year as the AIX business leader for applied and basic research.
“I’m truly excited about my role at Accenture Federal Services in which I will focus on helping our clients be successful at both adopting and adapting to the impact that AI and ML can have at scale across their organizations,” Sample said.
Prior to joining Accenture Federal Services, Sample spent 15 years as a federal and principal scientist in the research and development department at Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory. There, she oversaw the development of the emerging technology, intelligent systems and quantum programs for 7 years.
“Dr. Sample’s expertise will be a force multiplier in driving the co-evolutionary spiral of tech, data and science, fusing advances in AI and ML,” said Bryan Rich, managing director and lead for Accenture Federal Services’ applied intelligence practice. “She brings the organizational and subject matter expertise necessary to scale our world class work and achieve meaningful results for the federal government.”
Sample holds 10 patents, received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Pennsylvania State University, her doctorate in physical chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles, and her MBA from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
