In February of 2019, the President signed Executive Order 13859, launching an American Artificial Intelligence initiative. Dhara Consulting Group is among those in the forefront of this initiative, providing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning consulting for our customer base.
Broadly speaking, AI can support three important business needs: automating business processes, gaining insight through data analysis, and engaging with customers and employees. These business needs can be addressed respectively with Cognitive Automation (Robotic Process Automation), Cognitive Insight (using algorithms to detect patterns in vast volumes of data and interpret their meaning), and Cognitive Engagement (engaging customers or employees using technologies such as natural language processing chatbots, intelligent agents, etc.).
Our AI/ML team supports project Maven (see link below) which is a program that uses machine learning and computer vision to aid video analysis in intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance activities. Our participation is through the AF DCGS Open Architecture (Modernization) Program and sponsored by the USDI (Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence), along with Air Combat Command (ACC) – Langley-Eustis Joint AFB, and AFLCMC- Warner Robins AFB. As Enterprise Architects, we participate in the integration of AI/ML Algorithms designed by Air Force Research Labs (AFRL), Wright-Patterson AFB, as well as Oakridge National Labs, and Johns Hopkins Advanced Physics Labs.
Our contribution includes the integration of ‘training algorithms’ into the Full Motion Video (FMV) Stream and testing with ‘Geo Fences’.
