Burge joins IDEMIA

Dr. Mark Burge has joined IDEMIA’s national security solutions business as chief artificial intelligence officer.

The 1987 Wilmington High School graduate, formerly a scientist at Noblis and at Mitre, has led federal, academic and industrial teams in the development of machine-learning platforms intended for computer vision and biometric applications, according to IDEMIA.

IDEMIA CEO and President Scott Swann said Burge will share his expertise in research and development programs, drive efforts to explore AI/ML approaches, and help build the unit’s position in the identity intelligence market.

Nurge previously worked as a visiting professor at the U.S. Naval Academy, program manager at Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity and program director at the National Science Foundation.
