In-Q-Tel, the venture capital arm of the Central Intelligence Agency, is calling upon Addison-based Brainspace, to create custom features for the intelligence communities through a strategic partnership.
In-Q-Tel invests in technology that will keep the CIA ahead of the pack, and they are out to accelerate Brainspace, according to D Magazine. The figures of In-Q-Tel’s investment in Brainspace could not be released because of a nondisclosure agreement.
“It really validates the technology,” Brainspace CEO Dave Copps told D Magazine, adding that the association with In-Q-Tel was the most valuable part of the agreement. “The fact that it passed the muster on technology that’s vetted out to be worthy of these agencies is validation.”
Brainspace focuses on artificial intelligence and machine learning: e-discovery (through Discovery 5), internal investigations and defense intelligence. It specializes in unstructured data analysis and prioritize “creating machine learning that accelerates human learning,” according to a Brainspace news release.
“We’re going to continue to advance our core technology in machine learning,” Copps told D Magazine. “Our bread and butter is visualizations, connecting people to machine learning.”
