Defense



Using social media monitoring, computer vision, and data annotation, government agencies are now able to extract information to aid with terrorist surveillance, monitor national security threats, and more.

National Emergencies



Emergencies like natural disasters or coordinated attacks can happen without a moment’s notice. When lives are at stake, responding immediately and with coordination is key. Using translation, voice recognition, and text data collection, emergency responders around the world can communicate efficiently with those in harm’s way.
