From using data to support citizens during the heart of a pandemic to playing a key role in national security, the opportunities to do impactful, innovative work with artificial intelligence (AI) at Booz Allen are practically endless. “As we understand it, we’re the largest single provider of AI and data science services to the Federal Government,” says Joe Rohner, director of AI for defense. “Here, you’d have the chance to impact some of the most groundbreaking projects in the world.”
Graham Gilmer, Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) program manager, agrees. “We work with unique, important data sets that no one else can access. Our clients trust us with their most sensitive information, and in turn, we bring them the finest people and the best technology.”
Build AI Capabilities for National Security and Defense
The missions we serve with our work in AI are of national and global importance. Our team recently won a contract to support several of the most high-profile AI development efforts across the Department of Defense (DOD). Together, we’ll work with industry experts to source and integrate the most fitting AI technologies for an enormous variety of defense missions. “AI has transformational potential,” says Steve Escaravage, analytics and AI business leader. “On this project, we’ll combine our deep understanding of both mission and technology to help the JAIC develop and operationalize AI-enabled capabilities across the DOD.”
Help Transform Healthcare with AI
To support our nation during this challenging time, our team used AI and specialized modeling software to build a COVID-19 forecasting platform. The goal? To help states and cities make more informed decisions about how, where, and when to loosen social distancing restrictions while keeping their populations safe.
The platform also serves as a repository for models that predict the spread of the disease and related demand for equipment and services. “We have the expertise to directly impact people’s health and safety during the current pandemic and beyond,” says Lauren Neal, director of health AI.
By joining our team, you’ll not only get to solve some of the toughest challenges our clients face in the health sector, you’ll work closely with them to create pilot solutions using new technology. “From computer vision to natural language processing, we implement and operationalize these emerging technologies to see them at work in the real world,” adds Lauren. “Between the brand-new tech and the real impact we’re having on big health challenges, you can say what we do is exclusively Booz Allen.”
Break New Ground with Quantum Computing
“Few people in the world understand what quantum computing is, let alone know how to use it,” says Isabella Martinez, a quantum computing software researcher. “Here at Booz Allen, we are lucky to have an entire team dedicated to the field.”
Our team of Ph.D. quantum computing researchers represents diverse skills and interests within the realm. They work with our clients to identify which of their needs are met by AI and which may, someday, be better solved using quantum computing. The team includes hardware and software researchers who focus on everything from writing software for quantum computers to vetting others’ software to figuring out the correct composition of a quantum bit or "qubit."
Team members also play a role in creating market reports and leading educational workshops. “We do what we do because we honestly believe this technology will lead to a global paradigm shift, especially when it comes to AI,” says Isabella.
