NCI Information Systems announced a strategic partnership with Tanjo, Inc. on Tuesday. NCI will leverage Tanjo’s proprietary machine learning technology to combine new data analytics methods with its artificial intelligence platform Shai (Scaling Humans with Artificial Intelligence) to deliver real-time insights and actionable intelligence to federal customers.
"By augmenting our AI-as-a-service offering with Tanjo's machine learning technology, NCI will broaden the capabilities we provide our government customers, especially around one of their greatest areas of need – data analytics," said Paul A. Dillahay, president and CEO of NCI.
NCI will enhance its Shai framework with Tanjo’s proven machine learning to study the volume, velocity and variety of big data. The NCI-Tanjo partnership will enrich human and machine interactions through AI and machine learning solutions to harness government data to learn and improve mission outcomes.
"Tanjo is looking forward to the opportunity to apply our data-driven machine learning to the work NCI is performing for its government customers," said Richard Boyd, CEO of Tanjo. "Our machine learning tools analyze massive amounts of data swiftly and recognize patterns much faster than humans. Combining this capability with NCI's AI solution set will arm federal workers with automated insight and access to collective knowledge."
Boyd and Allen Badeau, chief technology officer of NCI, will present “The Simulation Century – the Big Leap from Big Data to Immersive Intelligence” at MODSIM World 2019 on April 22nd in Norfolk, Va. Their session will address the growing need for managing and optimizing the balance between humans and machines to achieve goals.
