WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. January 2022–
scale AI, the data infrastructure for AI, today announced its selection as a government-wide AI partner under a $249 million blanket purchase agreement issued by the Department of Defense (DoD) Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC). Through this agreement, Scale’s commercially proven, market-leading technology will be made available to all federal agencies to solve their key AI challenges and enhance operational AI/ML capabilities across the US government.
As JAIC’s AI readiness partner, Scale will develop Test & Evaluation (T&E) capabilities spanning machine learning, deep learning and neural networks, with a focus on critical use cases including:
- Image analysis, deep learning based visual search testing and image classification
- autonomous systems
- Machine-enhanced humans (to include human-machine interfaces) and enhanced methods of measuring the cognitive and physical workload of warfighters (to include AR/VR testing services)
- NLP Enabled Products and Services
Scale’s end-to-end AI solution enables the US government to manage the entire ML lifecycle – from data annotation to dataset curation and management (via scale core ), through model testing and evaluation to model development – all in one place. Analysts and operators can understand, visualize, curate, and collaborate on their data—supporting their mission goals through process automation, enhanced decision support, and insight generation.
“AI is not a one-and-done technology and we are pleased that JAIC is embracing the continuous T&E approach on which Scale was founded. Adopting this framework will make government AI programs more resilient, accountable and equitable, ensuring that US investments in AI translate into successful deployment of new, impactful technologies.” – Alexandr Wang, Founder and CEO of Scale.
