Accrete's Blockbuster Dual-Use AI Solution for Intelligence Analysis

OVERVIEW

See the big picture.
Make better decisions.

Argus is a highly configurable dual-use AI solution for open source strategic intelligence analysis that continuously analyzes the open source web, in multiple languages, to predict anomalous and nefarious behavior hidden in plain sight.

Argus reads, understands, and learns at scale as it scours everything from news and social media to company filings and microprocessor manuals to flag vulnerabilities in terms of supply chain influence, hacked hardware components, and viral propaganda. Argus performs the work of thousands of analysts and extracts game-changing predictive insights that save government and business billions of dollars.

Automate cognitive work at scale.

Most conventional software can't adequately analyze text data as it appears in changing contexts. As their universe of data becomes bigger, they become slower and less effective. In contrast, Argus performs complex cognitive work with increasing accuracy as the scale grows, despite changing contexts, due to its continuously learning AI.

Surface critical insights in real-time.

Argus autonomously ingests and contextualizes a growing universe of messy data to assemble a dynamic mosaic of relevant information. This allows Argus to spot signals in the noise at unmatched speeds.

Avoid painful manual data labeling.

Most static AI tools require massive amounts of initial and ongoing training and labeling. Accrete’s models learn implicitly and require no explicit rules or labeling. This enables Argus to accurately perform cognitive work at scale without the time-consuming manual labeling.
CUSTOMER QUOTES

"[Accrete's] AI-based knowledge graph construction capability has enabled DoD to identify, track, and map illicit activities at a speed and scale that is three times faster than what human analysts could perform while maintaining similar levels of accuracy.

Armed with this new capability, DoD has already searched and analyzed millions of records and identified dozens of Chinese technology investment firms with illicit operations across the globe. DoD has also been able to expose the networks and methods these firms use to access critical AI technologies.

Since applying [Accrete's] knowledge graphs to this problem, DoD has learned that many of these firms sought partnerships with U.S. companies while obscuring their real identities to escape U.S. sanctions and restrictions."

"Accrete is cutting our most complex and intensive engineering timelines by months (a 50% reduction in timeline and an 80% decrease in manpower), while dramatically improving the accuracy of our technical solutions. Their continuous learning platform is so revolutionary that we are now able to embark on technical projects that were too manually intensive to even consider. We strongly believe that with Accrete’s cutting edge technologies we are prepared for the intensively competitive international landscape, where artificial intelligence is the key to staying ahead of our competitors and assuring our national security."

"Accrete's ability to automate contextual understanding from massive amounts of data to better understand adversary intent is a challenge faced across the supply chain risk management community.

Accrete has demonstrated that modern data analytics techniques can outperform current methods in identifying potential foreign intelligence adversary influence in the Department of Defense supply chain. This solution is relevant to many Defense Department organizations."

Problem
Foreign adversaries are manipulating and hampering the U.S. supply chain, creating potential shortages in areas like semiconductors and other key hardware. This interference has a direct impact on many DoD operations.

Most data in the world is public, with many foreign threats hiding in plain sight. And given the sheer volume of that data, it is difficult for decision-makers and defense analysts to locate those threats to protect the U.S. supply chain. To make matters worse, traditional analytics and static AI tools don’t work because they aren’t smart enough and can’t scale.

Solution

Argus and its continually learning AI detect anomalies in the U.S. supply chain that are hidden in public data. This enables it to identify vulnerabilities and emerging threats quickly.

By gathering, reading, and continually learning from the massive amount of data associated with the U.S. supply chain, Argus connects the dots and surfaces game-changing predictive insights to help the DoD discover the shortest path to the most valuable insights and make better decisions faster.


To do what Argus is doing with traditional methods would cost the DoD an estimated $238 million, or the equivalent of 2,000 analysts, per year.

How did Argus do this?

So far, Argus has analyzed over 45 million documents relating to more than 12 million entities and more than 12,000 investment projects in more than 180 countries. Through its analysis, Argus has already inferred 200 million relationships, resulting in the discovery of valuable insights that directly help locate active foreign threats and secure the U.S. supply chain.
