MarkLogic works closely with DoD and JAIC to provide national security data ...

It''s about the metadata.

Jeffrey Casale, the CEO of MarkLogic, believes that when it comes to data analytics, you''re really dragging in all of that data. So this, for instance, is ultimately what proves to be the most useful. It gives context, insight, meaning, and key messages.

Casale said that we can understand non only the information, but also the information about it. And that allows us to create powerful models.

As organizations gather more and more data by the day and in some cases, when they are looking to AI and ML for help. MarkLogic has developed its enterprise NoSQL platform as a means to assist organizations in managing, exploiting, and securing their data, and soon this tool will be utilized for national security purposes.

Data for defense

A 20-year-old San Carlos, California-based company, is preparing to work with the Department of Defense (DoD) as part of a $241 million basic ordering agreement. This helps the Joint Artificial Intelligence Centers (JAIC) Data Readiness AI Development program, which is designed to scale AI across the Pentagon.

MarkLogic is one of the dozens of organizations selected to partner with JAIC, which was established in 2018, with a promise to exploit the transformative potential of artificial intelligence technology for the benefit of Americas national security.

Casale did not provide specific details on the project to be done or its scope as it is still very early in the process, explained and the task will ultimately be classified. MarkLogic will collaborate with the JAIC to identify appropriate AI use cases, develop capabilities, and quantify potential data implications.

How do we help organizations within the Department of Defense to take advantage of the data they currently have, and do so to help them navigate complex challenges faced by the government on a particular mission? Casale said.

According to its website, the JAIC is utilizing AI in areas of joint war fighting (systems, sensors, and targeting solutions), war fighter health (disease curing, decreased healthcare costs, and increased operational readiness), joint information warfare and logistics. It is also using AI to improve fleet readiness through diagnostics, training, process improvements, forecasting, and supply chain optimization. Achieve mission areas that are aligned against unpredictable threats such as humanitarian resistance and disaster relief. Mass destruction and force protection

MarkLogic is looking forward to providing an alternative to the country''s most pressing national security complex data problems.

MarkLogic is extremely pleased to have received the recognition of JAIC for their data readiness efforts, and we look forward to continuing our commitment to supporting AI ethical principles. In recognition of the DODs award, MarkLogic is a strategic partner with JAIC.

Expanding use in the federal sector

MarkLogics'' extensive experience in the federal sector has boosted the contract award. It has been used in significant projects for the US Marine Corps and the Center for Tobacco Products Integrated Research Data System (CIRDS) and in the implementation of Healthcare.gov.

The Air Force Research Lab of the United States has leveraged MarkLogic technology to develop its HyperThought data management platform. This is a scalable, agile, and flexible way to make data at the exabyte level transparent and securely shared with thousands of internal and external scientists and engineers. According to the agency, it has increased performance a hundredfold and reduced tens of thousands of development hours.

Data agility for the enterprise

Boeing has developed a Web 2.0 platform for integrating data to make digital twins; Aetna has established a human resources hub, and pharmaceutical research firm AbbVie has powered its PubLab. This tool uses ML, natural language processing, visualization, and analytics to allow data scientists to analyze and discover more than 40 million pieces of unstructured and semi-structured scientific literature.

The challenge is that organizations have vast amounts of data, according to Casale. All of them want to gain meaning from it, but the more complex the data, the harder it is to obtain at the data.

MarkLogic has been used for deep query and integration, to develop enterprise applications and to increase access to analytics and ML. The platform advantage is that it ingests data as-is from any source and stores that data together with everything else that is relevant as a single resource in a single platform.

This helps improve AI performance while allowing data to be tracked and traced throughout the algorithm, according to Casale. Ultimately, this provides high-quality, trusted, accessible insights that drive rapid action and innovation, and it is especially helpful when looking at why decision makers were made or why future actions should be taken.

Casale said it''s the unique ability that we have with complex data. We can use powerful algorithms to increase data agility and security. It''s only as good as your ability to sense meaning out of all data you already have.
