Reston, VA (September 22, 2020) — NCI Information Systems, Inc. (NCI), a leading provider of advanced information technology solutions and professional services to U.S. federal government agencies, and Tanjo AI, LLC, an award-winning machine learning (ML) company based in North Carolina, have been chosen by the U.S. Navy to provide an AI-enabled project management solution.
NCI is leveraging Tanjo AI’s proprietary ML technology to infuse new data analytics capabilities into NCI’s artificial intelligence (AI) platform, Shai — Scaling Humans with Artificial Intelligence — to deliver real-time insights and actionable intelligence to a range of federal government customers, including this latest project with the U.S. Navy.
NCI and Tanjo will be helping the organization to manage large and complex building contracts more efficiently, track subcontractors through machine automation, and ensure more timely project completion.
