Booz Allen, Databricks Partner to Deliver AI Capabilities to Federal Government
Booz Allen Hamilton has partnered with Databricks, an enterprise data and software company, to deliver artificial intelligence capabilities to federal government agencies.
Databricks offers an open collaborative platform called Lakehouse, which was designed to unify data engineering, data science, machine learning and analytics projects, Booz Allen said.
Booz Allen said that combined with its own machine learning workflows, Databricks’ technology can automate and process large amounts of data on a single platform to allow users to rapidly train AI models.
Lakehouse is also expected to accelerate the data engineering processes used in genomics, an interdisciplinary field of biology focused on mapping and editing an organism’s full set of DNA.
John Larson, senior vice president at Book Allen and a member of the Potomac Officers Club, said Lakehouse will help Booz Allen deliver AI-driven deliverables and outcomes for defense, federal civilian and intelligence agencies.
“The accelerated collaboration, scale and data-driven insights that this partnership brings will add tremendous value for our federal clients,” Larson added.
Booz Allen’s federal government customers that use AI include the Department of Defense‘s Joint AI Center, Army Futures Command and the Veterans Benefits Administration.
Lawmakers recently introduced two pieces of legislation aimed at regulating the use and development of AI in the intelligence community, the DOD and certain other cabinet-level agencies.
The AI for the Military Act would require the Pentagon to implement educational and training programs to ensure that its officers are prepared to handle the emerging technology.
The second bill called AI Capabilities and Transparency Act is aimed at establishing an AI accreditation program led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. `
