Top Use Cases for AI in Government


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.

Law Enforcement

Secure transcription allows law enforcement to accomplish many objectives, including capturing files from Body Worn Video, official record keeping, and archival record solutions.

Single Data Collection and Annotation Pipeline

Government agencies building AI projects can leverage our full suite of multimodal collection and annotation tools and combine them in an automated process with workflows within the Appen Platform to:

Break complex projects down into simple jobs, then automatically route data between the jobs using configurable routing rules
String multiple jobs or models together in a branching or linear configuration
Leverage machine learning in workflows to offset costs and expedite project completion
