April 13, 2021 - New York — Clarifai, a leading AI lifecycle platform provider for managing unstructured image, video and text data, announced today that it has partnered with Palantir, Inc. (NYSE: PLTR) to deliver its Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms on Palantir’s data management platform. This effort is part of the first phase of the U.S. Army’s Ground Station modernization in support of its Tactical Intelligence Targeting Access Node (TITAN) program.
Palantir was awarded a Phase one Project Agreement through an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with Consortium Management Group, Inc. (CMG) on behalf of Consortium for Command, Control and Communications in Cyberspace (C5). During the first phase of the initiative, Clarifai is supporting Palantir by providing object detection models to facilitate the design of a ground station prototype solution.
“By providing our Computer Vision AI solution to Palantir, Clarifai is helping the Army leverage spatial, high altitude, aerial and terrestrial data sources for use in intelligence and military operations,” said Dr. Matt Zeiler, Clarifai’s CEO. “The partnership will offer a ‘turnkey’ solution that integrates data from various sources, including commercial and classified sources from space to ground sensors.”
“In order to target with great precision, we need to be able to see with great precision, and that’s the objective of this program,” said Lieutenant General Robert P. Ashley, Jr., U.S. Army (Ret.). “The TITAN program unifies ground stations to connect intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance sensors from all domains to accelerate communication and decision making.”
The results of the first phase of this competitive contract will be used by the Army to inform awarding future phases and eventual production of ground stations for the TITAN enterprise.
