Booz Allen Commercial delivers advanced cyber defenses to the Fortune 500 and Global 2000. We are technical practitioners and cyber-focused management consultants with unparalleled experience – we know how cyber-attacks happen and how to defend against them.
Our strategy and technology consultants have empowered our international clients with the knowledge and experience they need to build their own local resources and capabilities.
In facing challenges of modernization, our Middle East and North Africa clients have complex requirements that benefit from our proven experience in guiding major programs and projects for governments and private-sector organizations. The services we offer in UAE, Qatar, Egypt, Turkey, Kuwait, Morocco, Jordan, and other regional countries build on our consulting legacy.
Our clients call upon us to work on their hardest problems—delivering effective health care, protecting warfighters and their families, keeping our national infrastructure secure, bringing into focus the traditional boundaries between consumer products and manufacturing as those boundaries blur.
Booz Allen was founded on the notion that we could help companies succeed by bringing them expert, candid advice and an outside perspective on their business. The analysis and perspective generated by that talent can be found in the case studies and thought leadership produced by our people.

If artificial intelligence (AI) is the brain—or logic—of an autonomous system, then machine intelligence (MI) is its arms and legs. We use these analogies because AI and MI are human pursuits—machine values will come from human values. We just need a system of checks and balances to make sure they stay that way.
Applications of AI and MI throughout the past 20 years prove that the risks can be mitigated. There are no stories of Google’s search engine, text message auto-complete, or airline autopilot becoming sentient and going rogue.
“Let’s think of AI and MI technologies as experiments on humans—on our society.”
These technologies are major economic drivers. They will increase efficiencies, amplify productivity, uncover new insights and opportunities, and speed the time from innovative idea to value creation. This will not only transform individual businesses, but it will also transform economies because the force of AI and MI is so disruptive that old ways of doing business will no longer allow organizations to remain profitable.
Let’s think of AI and MI technologies as experiments on humans—on our society. The companies and organizations that build and deploy these systems are experimenting on us, on how we interact with cyber systems, and how we adapt the way we work and live and commute; how we gather information and make decisions—how we do almost everything. This grand experiment needs a set of rules. That’s why we need to follow universally accepted principles of safe and beneficial human subject research:
National policy and strategy should support, enable, and empower innovation and economic development around AI and MI in every way possible. We just have to keep a human eye on it all.
