Analytical AI has been awarded Phase 1 non-dilutive funding from Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology via the Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP). The award will support development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms for object recognition of common traveler items. This enhances the current Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA's) workflows and will promote more rapid and effective security checkpoints.
“Our goal is to help TSA use artificial intelligence techniques to differentiate stream-of-commerce items,” said SVIP Managing Director Melissa Oh. “Analytical AI has proposed to develop robust, network-ready screening tools that would meet current TSA requirements with the flexibility to adapt to future TSA mission priorities.”
