Government and national defense AI systems provider SparkCognition Government Systems (SGS) has named Logan Jones as General Manager. SGS, which launched in May 2020, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SparkCognition and developes AI-powered systems that address national security needs. Jones will report directly to SparkCognition Founder and CEO Amir Husain.
"We are absolutely thrilled to round out our inaugural SGS leadership team with Logan," said Husain. "He has been a wonderful collaborator in the years we've worked with him at SparkCognition, and with Logan's extensive defense background, we couldn't have picked someone better suited to lead our exciting new company."
Jones brings over a decade of experience in national defense strategy and autonomous systems to the team at SparkCognition. He most recently served as a Director at urban air mobility provider Wisk and before that worked at Boeing for over 13 years in various senior capacities.
"Around the world and across industries, we've seen the need for technology-driven transformations proliferate – this is especially critical for government and national defense," said Jones. "I've long been a supporter of the work SparkCognition has done on this front, and I'm excited to join the incredibly experienced team at SGS to further the application of next-gen technologies across multiple facets of government."
