Justin Poole: NGA Pursues AI, Automation, Augmentation to Address Big Data Challenges

Justin Poole, deputy director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, has said NGA has begun efforts to adopt artificial intelligence, augmentation and automation, also known as the ‘triple A,’ to generate insights from vast amounts of data and address other big data revolution-related challenges faced by the intelligence community, C4ISRNET reported Thursday.

“NGA intends to apply ‘triple A’ to every image that we ingest by the end of this year,” Poole said at the annual C4ISRNET conference.

Poole noted that NGA produced over 50 million indexed observations from at least 12 million collected images through the use of AI.

“We’ve launched a number of initiatives to figure out how to automate things like change detection, target recognition and target monitoring,” he added.
