“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) announced that DataRobot, Inc. of Tysons Corner, Virginia has received $200,000 to begin testing a prototype of a machine learning platform for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Global Travel Assessment System (GTAS). The award is part of DHS S&T’s Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP).”
“Developing predictive models in GTAS currently requires data scientists and specialists who work at a pace that risks a model being outdated by the time of its completion. DataRobot proposes to apply automated machine learning (AML) to GTAS to expedite the model development process.”
“DataRobot received its award under SVIP’s Innovation Other Transaction Solicitation (OTS) Open Source Predictive Analytics, Entity Resolution, and Visualization Tools for the Global Travel Assessment System (GTAS).” Read the full article here.
