SAIC and Sinequa team to support NASA’s global information access

Science Applications International Corp. of Reston, VA and France-based Sinequa announced on November 5 that they are working together to deliver an intelligent search experience with Sinequa’s advanced natural language processing and machine learning technologies for NASA’s global information access capability at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

SAIC, recently awarded a contract to deploy and sustain a global knowledge management capability for NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, chose Sinequa’s insight engine to help search and analyze NASA’s structured and unstructured content while improving the search experience, which supports missions and operations.

“Organizations like NASA have been looking at how to utilize decades of information and reports and to extract valuable insights from those data stores. In the past, knowledge managers and corporate librarians helped with that process but now tools such as Sinequa’s AI-powered search technologies are providing these insights using machine learning, state of the art natural language processing and knowledge mining,” stated Dave Schubmehl, research director, AI software platforms, content analytics and search at IDC. “At IDC, we see this as an emerging trend to improve the search and information finding and use experience across a broad range of industries and government agencies.”

“We are excited to work with Sinequa on this important contract. Using its knowledge management platform, we are helping NASA to access and utilize decades’ worth of information,” said Bob Genter, SAIC executive vice president and general manager of the Civilian Markets Customer Group. “By better connecting NASA’s workforce to digital content, we can help them deliver on critical space missions.”

“To be selected by such a well-known and a highly-regarded organization to provide a solution to the experts at NASA is thrilling,” said Xavier Pornain, senior vice president, North America at Sinequa. “Together with SAIC, Sinequa’s powerful search and analytics technology will unlock NASA’s galactic treasure trove of information and make it actionable to the engineers and scientists who are planning future missions.”
