The team includes scientists, subject matter experts, analysts, and developers, many with PhDs in fields like computer vision and machine learning.”
The team was able to modify existing processes, algorithms, and protocols to get the new capability on line within months.
Although the program launched only recently, it’s already providing a measurable improvement in identification rates for the client. “When events happen, we get requests in the middle of the night and can return analysis reports within hours—whether the situation involves suspected terrorism or war
