EPA Implements Veritone’s Enterprise AI Platform to Automate Data Redaction
Veritone announced that the Environmental Protection Agency has adopted the company’s aiWARE enterprise artificial intelligence platform.
EPA will use aiWARE to automate the process of redacting personally identifiable and other sensitive information from the documents that it releases to the public, Veritone said.
According to the company, EPA’s staff is no longer able to perform redactions in an accurate and timely manner due to the unmanageable number of public records requests made to the agency.
Veritone noted that the agency is required to fulfill the public’s requests for records in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act of 1967, a law that was written before the internet.
AiWARE works with hundreds of AI engines across different cognitive categories to help developers turn audio, video, text and other data sources into actionable intelligence, according to its product page.
The platform supports AI-powered applications in the local and federal government, legal and compliance and media and entertainment verticals, the company said.
Veritone added that aiWARE can be deployed on a public or private cloud, on-premise, on hybrid environments or in a network-isolated environment.
The technology is already in use in various components of the departments of Defense and Justice, Veritone said.
Jon Gacek, head of government, legal and compliance at Veritone, said that the EPA is improving its operational efficiency by embracing automation technology.
By automating repetitive and time-consuming work, the EPA will also be able to move personnel to tasks that still require human oversight, Gacek added.
