April 10, 2023 — In late March 2023, an open letter signed by several prominent figures in business and technology called for a halt in the development of some AI labs, which fueled concerns about the potential harm AI could bring. What is largely overlooked in the letter and subsequent media coverage is how AI is currently being used to enhance our country’s security and promote positive societal advancements. Here at Credence, our experts are applying creative AI solutions to some of our country’s most challenging problems.
Credence supports government agencies that are responsible for the health, security, and defense of this nation. Our innovative AI approach allows us to solve complex challenges and redefine the art of the possible.
These are just some of the ways our AI tools are enhancing mission success for government agencies and improving the security of those they serve:
- Natural Language Processing (NLP) – During a natural or humanitarian crisis, information is key to protecting and saving lives. We have implemented NLP to interpret a variety of handwritten or typed documents in multiple languages to provide actionable intelligence and improved situational awareness for responding agencies. The same tools then allow agencies to issue real-time warnings and information on how and where to seek help in multiple languages. By collecting and disseminating crucial information to those in need, this technology helps protect and save lives when the worst happens.
- Fraud/Anomaly Detection – AI-powered fraud and anomaly detection can provide an additional layer of security to government websites, ensuring the integrity of government information and operations. Our tools can analyze large amounts of data, identify patterns and anomalies that may indicate malicious activity, and allow agencies to move quickly to prevent further harm. The automation and detection of these tasks saves money while improving the continuity of government services.
- Predictive Modeling – AI provides us the ability to use predictive models to anticipate pandemics globally and respond to outbreaks. These predictions are essential to maintaining an agile and prepared workforce that can be relied upon to contain emerging outbreaks.
Credence is committed to collaborating with the government agencies we support while implementing cutting-edge technologies that are aligned with federal standards and recommendations, including the NIST AI Risk Management Framework. By having an intimate understanding of both the risks and benefits posed by AI combined with our deep expertise with our customer’s mission, Credence is uniquely positioned to develop and implement AI technology safely and effectively to ensure enhanced mission success on our projects.
