Sponsored by Businesswire

Information Systems, Inc.
(NCI), a leading provider of advanced
information technology solutions and professional services to U.S.
federal government agencies, today announced a strategic partnership
with Tanjo, Inc., an award-winning machine learning (ML) company based
in North Carolina. NCI will leverage Tanjo’s proprietary ML technology
to infuse new data analytics capabilities into NCI’s artificial
intelligence (AI) platform, Shai
— Scaling Humans with Artificial Intelligence — to deliver real-time
insights and actionable intelligence to federal customers.

“By augmenting our AI-as-a-service offering with Tanjo’s machine
learning technology, NCI will broaden the capabilities we provide our
government customers, especially around one of their greatest areas of
need — data analytics,” said Paul
A. Dillahay
, president and CEO of NCI. “As the quantity of data
being gathered across the federal government continues to surge, faster
results, improved insight and more informed decision-making are
paramount. Our collaboration with Tanjo will maximize the efficiency and
value of our customers’ workforce and data strategies in this regard.”

Continuing its approach of bringing commercial technologies to the
government, NCI will enhance its Shai framework with Tanjo’s proven ML
technology, which studies the volume, velocity and variety of big data.
The NCI-Tanjo partnership will enrich human and machine interactions
through AI and ML solutions, resulting in the better harnessing of
government data to learn and improve mission outcomes.

“Tanjo is looking forward to the opportunity to apply our data-driven
machine learning to the work NCI is performing for its government
customers,” said Richard Boyd, CEO of Tanjo. “Our machine learning tools
analyze massive amounts of data swiftly and recognize patterns much
faster than humans. Combining this capability with NCI’s AI solution set
will arm federal workers with automated insight and access to collective
knowledge, which they can use every day to solve critical challenges.”

Boyd and NCI Chief Technology Officer Dr. Allen Badeau will present “The
Simulation Century – the Big Leap from Big Data to Immersive
Intelligence” at MODSIM
World 2019
on April 22, 2019, in Norfolk, Virginia. The session will
address the growing need for managing and optimizing the balance between
humans and machines to achieve the greatest outcomes.
