Booz Allen Hamilton announced on Friday that the company has entered into an agreement, under its joint venture partner agreement with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Technical Information Service (NTIS), to assist the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC).
“Artificial intelligence will fundamentally change how the U.S. government protects our national interests and delivers services to citizens,” said Steve Escaravage, a Booz Allen senior vice president and leader in the firm’s analytics and AI business.
Booz Allen will collaborate NTIS to provide innovative data services to federal agencies, through joint venture partnerships with the private sector, to advance federal data priorities, promote economic growth, and enable operational excellence.
In addition, Booz Allen will support the JAIC’s cybersecurity National Mission Initiative (NMI) with cyber sense-making, focusing on network event detection, user activity monitoring and cyber data engineering planning.
The team will adapt and integrate components of those products, conduct wholesale AI development, and establish a Development Operations (DevOps) pipeline to rapidly deliver AI capabilities into DoD mission environments.
“We’re hearing from clients daily who are keen to explore how AI can help support their missions. Booz Allen has been a first mover in this space, strategically investing in building AI solutions and an industry-leading team, seasoned at navigating the complexities of operationalizing AI at scale – from identifying important ethical considerations to tackling technical hurdles,” Escaravage added.
