Booz Allen Hamilton announced on Tuesday that the company has formed a strategic partnership with Hypergiant Industries to address the toughest challenges organizations face, powered by AI solutions.

The partnership will fuse machine learning, artificial intelligence and other emerging technology with Booz Allen’s deep expertise as an AI innovator and integrator for the U.S. government and Fortune 500 clients to bring new AI solutions and fully capture the potential of the technology.

“While AI holds significant opportunity, organizations often struggle to effectively implement the technology in a way that delivers real, repeatable value,” said Josh Sullivan, a senior vice president and leader of the firm’s Analytics and AI business.

“Our work with Hypergiant aims to help bring AI out of the lab faster, empowering organizations to deliver explainable and transparent outcomes. Booz Allen and Hypergiant will also explore ways to speed AI adoption by identifying models from Booz Allen’s vast experience deploying AI, uncovering opportunities to repurpose and create immediate impact,” Sullivan added.

The strategic relationship aims to move past the hype of AI and put advanced analytics to work in meaningful ways for government and private sector organizations. The two companies will team on government contracts to deploy AI solutions at scale, changing the nature of how organizations achieve their missions and revolutionizing facets of government operations.

In addition to teaming today, Booz Allen and Hypergiant will explore several areas where AI is best poised to deliver impact by examining and possibly repurposing the intellectual property of both companies, including in such areas as bringing AI to the ER, catching fraudsters, predicting fake domains and spotting never before seen malware.
