Executive 1 Holding Company to Acquire Plasticity, Inc.

Making a Strategic Investment in Artificial Intelligence/Natural Language Processing and Intuitive Software Capabilities



TYSONS CORNER, Va. - September 24, 2020 - (Newswire.com)

​​​Executive 1 Holding Company, LLC (EX1), the holder of subsidiary companies that are leading providers of consulting and technology solutions to the federal government (HumanTouch, LLC and CorasCloud, Inc.), has signed a definitive Stock Purchase Agreement to acquire California-based Plasticity, Inc., an Artificial Intelligence (AI)/ Natural Language Processing (NLP) software company in San Francisco, California.

Set to close in October 2020, this strategic acquisition will strengthen and expand the technological capabilities offered by the EX1 family of companies and recognizes the rapid growth in the use and application of AI, NLP and Machine Learning (ML) by consumers, businesses and government. Plasticity’s leading-edge AI/ML/NLP technology platforms will provide the EX1 companies with new avenues for advisory services, Enterprise decision analytics, predictive decisions, cost savings, accountability, efficiency, and data transparency across the spectrum.

As a result of the acquisition, EX1 will pick up a team of data scientists who are AI and NLP experts. The acquisition includes the “Plasticity” software that helps developers create human-like natural language interfaces. The combination of Plasticity with EX1 creates value in several ways:

  • Allows EX1 to leverage unique market opportunities, including Federal Government innovation grant programs.
  • Offers additional consulting capabilities/ qualifications in the emerging AI/ML/NLP market space (e.g., state-of-the-art analytical data, content library, communication support, social media integration, content report monitoring, content search and exportable report capabilities). ​
  • Opens significant new contract opportunities in the DOD, healthcare and financial markets.​

Moe Jafari, CEO of EX1, said “Natural Language Processing is what makes Artificial Intelligence a real, functioning asset to business and government. Our goal is to leverage AI/ML/NLP to better serve our core clients in the DOD. Plasticity’s technology stack and kernels will help our partners further their approach and answer questions yet to be asked. Plasticity’s capabilities and solutions will drive thought, insight and auditable solutions for our Federal Civilian and Military clients’ complex challenges.”

Plasticity, Inc. will remain an independent company and become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the EX1. The creative team at Plasticity, Inc. will be actively involved in supporting customers as well as continuing their work to engineer increasingly sophisticated solutions to complex challenges. Plasticity’s products dramatically reduce cost and “time to insight” while creating accurate information output.

Dan Naselius, President and CTO of CORAS said, “The CORAS Enterprise Decision Management platform uses AI/ML with an array of powerful, real-time decision-making tools. Plasticity’s NLP is like adding rocket fuel to what our software already does to our work for the Armed Forces via execution, accountability, transparency, decision-making and traceability. With Plasticity’s NLP, we will have the first federally focused Enterprise platform that truly listens to its users and uses structured and unstructured data to help them do their jobs better.”

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

Oct 21, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction. So, the pair is working together using data from sources such as satellites, sonar and radar to keep a closer eye on how many whales are in the ocean. The effort has an easy to understand name for a project involving complex data and surveillance — the aquarium and firm are calling the project...

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Oct 21, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Oct 21, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 21, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
