Booz Allen, Hypergiant Industries form strategic relationship

McLean, VA-based Booz Allen Hamilton and Austin, TX-based Hypergiant Industries announced on August 6 a strategic relationship to help solve the toughest challenges organizations face, powered by AI solutions. The relationship will fuse Hypergiant Industries’ leadership in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and emerging technology with Booz Allen’s deep expertise as an AI innovator and integrator for the U.S. Government and Fortune 500 clients—driving to bring new AI solutions that help clients fully capture the promise of the technology.

“While AI holds significant opportunity, organizations often struggle to effectively implement the technology in a way that delivers real, repeatable value,” said Josh Sullivan, a Booz Allen senior vice president and leader of the firm’s Analytics and AI business. “Our work with Hypergiant aims to help bring AI out of the lab faster, empowering organizations to deliver explainable and transparent outcomes. We plan to work together to help transform the public sector by automating tasks and helping clients adopt innovative machine learning solutions to, for example, improve health outcomes for Americans. Booz Allen and Hypergiant will also explore ways to speed AI adoption by identifying models from Booz Allen’s vast experience deploying AI, uncovering opportunities to repurpose and create immediate impact.”

The strategic relationship aims to move past the hype of AI and put advanced analytics to work in meaningful ways for government and private sector organizations. The two companies will team on government contracts to deploy AI solutions at scale, changing the nature of how organizations achieve their missions and revolutionizing facets of government operations. In addition to teaming today, Booz Allen and Hypergiant will explore several areas where AI is best poised to deliver impact by examining and possibly repurposing the intellectual property of both companies.

“Booz Allen Hamilton has the kind of reach, scale, and knowledge that we get excited about,” said Hypergiant Industries’ Chief Executive Officer, Ben Lamm. “They also have a shared mission to help organizations and people change the world. Together, we will be able to leverage great technology and enable groundbreaking ideas, all in service to making substantial improvements to the world’s biggest problems. Together, we can create immense change and impact.”
