Artificial Intelligence: Deals In Video Analytics, Tactical Decisionmaking
Booz Allen invests in Reveal Technology; Motorola acquires Calipsa
Here are two interesting deals in AI – one, in tactical decisionmaking, the other in AI-assisted video surveillance.
Booz Allen – Reveal Technology
Military, government and business consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) has made a strategic investment in Reveal Technology, Inc., a visual analytics and edge artificial intelligence (AI) company.
“Reveal has developed solutions that increase situational awareness and accelerate the decision cycle for dismounted warfighters. Their technology provides rapid, actionable intelligence at the squad and soldier levels while answering the government’s call for speeding the delivery of applied and tactical AI to the battlefield,” said Joel Dillon, Booz Allen senior vice president of digital battlespace special missions. “It’s a gamechanger—and something I wish I had when I was in combat.”
Beyond special operations, there is future potential to apply Reveal’s technology to such mission-critical use cases as natural disaster response, public safety crises, maritime search and rescue, and more. (BusinessWire)
