The National Technical Information Service has partnered with technology firm Excella to support the Department of Defense’s efforts to establish its artificial intelligence infrastructure.
As part of its joint venture with NTIS, Excella and other industry partners will facilitate a 10-month initiative focused on helping DoD’s Joint AI Center develop an enterprise AI framework and sharing platform intended to aid cyber operations and decision-making, Excella said Tuesday.
Other potential areas of focus include discovering ways for DoD users to leverage “smart” data and creating an AI model for actionable intelligence.
Jeff Gallimore, chief technology and innovation officer at Excella, said the agreement would enable the company to build on its experience and work with JAIC in efforts to deploy AI to drive data modernization.
Excella, based in Arlington, Va., offers services encompassing AI, information technology modernization, Agile transformation and digital service delivery. The company has provided its services to clients such as the departments of Homeland Security, Justice and Health and Human Services.
NTIS operates under the Department of Commerce and partners with industry, academic and nonprofit entities through its joint venture program to conduct data science research and development activities.
