Brainspace’s new parnership with In-Q-Tel

Yahoo Finance recently announced that Brainspace has reached a partnership agreement and investment from In-Q-Tel, Inc. (IQT). The result of this strategic alliance will accelerate the market presence of Brainspace in analytics for digital investigations. By supporting Brainspace’s technology, IQT also ensures that operational requirements declared by the United States Intelligence Community (IC) are met. The IC serves to protect the U.S. in many areas ranging from climate change to foreign technology threats.

Brainspace combines machine learning technology and interactive data visualizations. Their mission is to change the way people interact with data and accelerate human learning. They created the Brainspace E-Discovery 5 to tackle challenges with advanced technology. The 5 parts to E-Discovery are:

  • Reveal Connections that Make the Case

  • Augmented Intelligence to Accelerate Review

  • Machine Learning for Intelligent Culling

  • Understand Who Knew What, When

  • Play Well With Others

“Throughout the intelligence community there is a huge challenge and untapped value in being able to surface insights, answers, and threats in unstructured data. Add the exponential increases in the volume, velocity, and complexity of data and the challenge seems almost insurmountable,” said Dave Copps, Chief Executive Officer at Brainspace. “Our products directly address this need through augmented intelligence. Brainspace Discovery 5 utilizes interactive data visualization as a sort of Lingua Franca, connecting people with machine learning and radically improving their productivity. IQT’s investment further validates our mission at Brainspace and reflects the need for machine learning, powerful user experiences, and next-generation investigative tools in a growing number of industries, including federal.”

IQT is a non-profit investor that makes strategic investments with U.S. government agencies that focus on improving national security. Their company accelerates the development and delivery of their selected company’s technologies to support the U.S. intelligence community. Since their founding in 1999, IQT’s mission has been to discover and partner with startup technology companies that seek to protect and preserve the U.S.’s security.

“When I saw the work that Brainspace was doing inside of very large enterprises with machine learning and analytics, I knew this was something IQT’s government partners would find valuable,” said Eugene Chiu, Investments Partner at IQT. “Their unique approach of connecting researchers and analysts to machine learning through interactive visualizations will produce extraordinary value for the intelligence community and beyond.”
