Expect Labs, a company that is among the leaders in the field when it comes to anticipatory computing, has announced a “strategic investment” partnership with In-Q-Tel (News - Alert). In-Q-Tel is an investment firm that has done quite well when it comes to identifying firms that work in innovative technology solutions. Most of the companies that In-Q-Tel works with have a very specific mission, and that is to support the tasks and missions of the United States Intelligence Community.
Expect Labs is perhaps most well-known for the creation of the MindMeld API. This developer platform is the first that makes it possible for companies and clients to build voice driven interfaces for any application, device, or website, in just a matter of minutes. The partnership between Expect Lab and In-Q-Tel will use the application for a wide range of applications that U.S. agencies will find useful.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Expect Labs to leverage its MindMeld technology,” said George Hoyem, Investments Partner at IQT. “Their solution has great potential for creating next-generation, contextual search experiences that can allow government to work more efficiently and derive insight from big data content.”
Intelligence service workers are starting to rely on a wide range of devices that include televisions, tablets and smartphones. Because those kinds of gadgets don’t have an easy to access physical keyboard, that makes it harder to rapidly search and process a ton of information. The MindMeld API allows users of the application to apply it to a huge range of different apps and allows them to use voice commands to search and catalog.
This kind of application will save a huge amount of time and money, and will allow users to also save a great deal of effort. When it comes to the intelligence community, every second and every bit of effort counts, and this partnership will only improve the work being done.
