Information Integrity is being introduced to the world of digital media by Blackbird. For a more genuine information environment, we assist corporate and national security organizations in understanding the narrative that lies behind the story. To counteract misinformation, Blackbird.AI combines machine learning with multidisciplinary human intelligence. In order to provide a more automatic understanding of disinformation (fake news) campaigns and damaging digital media, we have developed a proprietary AI-Driven SaaS platform. Understanding propaganda campaigns and automating mitigation and reaction activities are goals supported by Blackbird's Constellation Platform. Constellation is capable of identifying and highlighting threat actors, entities of interest, accounts (including bots/botnets and/or influencers), coordinated communities, connections, photos, videos, and data streams. It also offers automated reports that enable the analyst to gain automated insights. By integrating their data pipeline with Blackbird's contextual data enrichment, analysts can gain a deeper understanding of their data and metadata, providing them with new insights into threats. They can also use our Constellation's Dashboard to understand these systems through interactive visualization and AI that is human interpretable. GOVERNMENT (National Security, Interior, Intelligence, OSINT/HUMINT teams, and Innovation/AI think tanks) are the target customers. A Fortune 500/Global 5000 enterprise organization's CISO or CMO is considered an enterprise.
Organizations may fly their satellites with the aid of Cognitive Space, which uses artificial intelligence to revolutionize satellite operations for mission management, collection planning, and communications link coordination. The economy in New Space is drawing enormous investment and expanding tremendously. Thousands of new commercial spacecraft will occupy space. But for New Space enterprises, developing the necessary "ground architecture" is a huge barrier that often entails a considerable financial investment, a multi-year time commitment, and a high level of execution risk as they grow their business. The plumbing and processes necessary to monetise their constellations are typically unknown to satellite businesses, and they frequently have no clue how to develop the ground infrastructure that will support their commercial goal. Derisking and accelerating their buildout timetable, as well as an operational capability, are provided by Cognitive Space, which is subsequently used to improve their continuing operations. New Equipment for a New Space Advanced SaaS services are offered by Cognitive Space to satellite operators and providers of space infrastructure for maximizing revenue and performance yield, predicting future capacity, and managing collection management as satellite constellations expand and scale. Our efforts will significantly enhance how we keep track of the Earth for comprehending its economy, environment, and national security. Visit www.CognitiveSpace.com to learn more.
