Machine Learning Platform for Government

Challenges

A renaissance in private sector innovation, fueled by global venture capital investment, has overtaken the R&D budgets of the federal government. As a result, the technology “water line” has risen faster than its ability to outpace it, enabling rogue nations and non-state actors access to new technology leading to an advancement in their offensive capabilities. Additionally, the dearth of talent, in large part attracted by hefty private-sector wages, has made it difficult for the federal government to acquire and retain crucial human capital.

Lack of AI Talent
There is a shortage of talent with experience in developing and deploying ML solutions.
Regulatory Compliance
Strict internal and regulatory policies prohibit deployment of untested, unhardened solutions.
Point Solutions
It is not clear how AI can be used to add significant value to customers and stakeholders.
Infrastructure
Common AI solutions are often not compatible with on-premise infrastructure and data security requirements.

Solution

Skymind is a platform that helps product and engineering teams ship AI capabilities into enterprise applications faster.

Ship AI-Powered Apps Faster

Empower engineering teams to build AI functionality for Java applications in enterprise environments, using the language and environments that they are familiar with.

Reduce Operational Overhead

Eliminate dependencies and interoperability issues between data science and engineering teams. Get enterprise-grade model reliability, performance, and scaling without maintenance, all on the JVM stack.

Automate Business Processes

Build AI-powered capabilities into existing workflows using streaming or stored data from ERP and CRM systems, data lakes, Spark, Kafka, and elsewhere. Improve model performance over time with quality monitoring, A/B testing, and winner selection.

Make Data Science Work Useful

Engineers can integrate and deploy Python-based models developed by data science research teams into JVM environments and applications, or build their own models in a tracked and collaborative environment.

Perspective: Machine Learning for Government

Asymmetric technological capabilities enabling governments to maintain a decisive advantage over their adversaries are steadily eroding. In large part, globalization has contributed significantly to a renaissance in commercial innovation fueled by venture capital investment that far exceeds the research and development budgets of governments across the globe.

As a result, the global technology ‘water line’ has risen faster than the ability to outpace it alone. More so, rogue nations and non-state actors have gained ready access to new technology leading to an advancement in their offensive capabilities. Consequently, governments are investing in AI in order to accelerate the development, procurement and integration of commercially-derived disruptive capabilities to regain a technological lead.

Artificial intelligence has a range of uses in government.

  • Postal mechanization using optical character recognition (OCR) to automatically sort letters and forms.
  • Satellite imagery to scan and to identify objects of interest.
  • Command and control for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
  • Q&A chatbots to reduce customer wait times for social services.
  • Flagging of potential cases of money laundering and tax evasion.

The use cases are varied and the above represent only a sampling of the possibilities.
