AI pioneer Massive Analytic wins DASA competition
Private London-based artificial intelligence pioneer Massive Analytic has won a Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition to investigate the application of its patented leading edge AI technology, Artificial Precognition.
The technology helps to identify new ways to enable defence and security forces to effectively conduct electromagnetic (EM) operations across multiple domains.
The company is developing cognitive radio systems powered by the advanced mathematics behind its Artificial Precognition to improve how UK defence can sense, manage, visualise and utilise the EM spectrum, in real-time.
Founder and CEO George Frangou said: "The deployment of robotics and AI can, and will, change the course of history. Victory on tomorrow’s battlefield will depend on huge computing power, smart algorithms and the brutally efficient application of the two to a narrow domain.
"I can’t think of anything more important than UK forces being able to continue to have trusted communications in the heat of battle. This is our goal for this project.”
DASA, launched in 2016, is a cross-government organisation that finds and funds exploitable innovation to support UK defence and security quickly and effectively, and support UK prosperity. Their vision is for the UK to maintain its strategic advantage over its adversaries through the most innovative defence and security capabilities in the world.
Jess Lucas, Competition Delivery Manager at DASA said “Our remit is to find and fund innovations benefiting our defence and security end users, but we also seek to generate economic prosperity for the UK on a national and regional basis, so we are particularly pleased to support smaller businesses to develop their ideas, helping them to grow whilst helping us to co-create defence and security solutions.”
