New Partnership Targets Creation of Social Media Intelligence Tools
La Jolla CA | Zurich | Berlin February 16 2012 – ai-one inc. and Gnostech Inc. announced a partnership today to build new machine learning applications for the US government and military. The deal brings together two small firms that are well known for developing cutting-edge technologies. Gnostech specializes in simulation and modeling, Command Control Communications Computers and Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems and security engineering and Information Assurance (IA) applications. The partnership with ai-one provides Gnostech with access to technology that enables computers to learn the meaning and context of data in a way that is similar to humans. Called “biologically inspired intelligence” the technology is a new form of machine learning that is particularly useful for understanding complex, unstructured information – such as conversations in social media.
In the past month, the US government has issued six requests for companies to create solutions to help better understand Twitter, Facebook and other social media sources. These broad area announcements (BAAs) are formal requests from the Government to invite companies to provide turn-key solutions. With more than 800 million people actively using Facebook and more than 100 million Twitter users, governments and intelligence agencies know that they need better ways to mine this data to get real-time information to protect national security.“
We now have more than 40 partners worldwide that are experimenting with our technology – but only 3 that specialize in US government applications,” said Tom Marsh, President of ai-one. “Gnostech is local, technically driven and well positioned to develop rapid prototypes using our technology.”
