Argus is a highly configurable dual-use threat detection AI solution 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 predict supply chain influence, software vulnerabilities, logistics disruptions, viral mis/disinformation, insider threats, and more.
"[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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
