Testing Artificially Intelligent Systems…. Not just possible…Easy!

A senior manager in our test group down at Eglin Air Force Base forwarded me a white paper by SOGETI a company in Europe. The white paper was titled, “Testing of Artificial Intelligence, AI Quality Engineering Skills – An Introduction”. In general the white paper was well done however the authors based their conclusion that AI testers will need a plethora of new skills to be able to test AI on the following statement, “AI is not required to learn, it could be using pre-programmed rules to handle all possible outcomes. However, for systems with more than basic complexity, this has proved to be a task too large and too complex to handle (it has been tried and failed multiple times since the 1960s)”. What these authors apparently didn’t now is that BRC did solve this problem in 1996 under the Army’s small business innovation research (SBIR) program. In 1998 BRC was awarded the Tibbetts award from the small business administration for “excellence in innovation” for this breakthrough. Continue reading “Testing Artificially Intelligent Systems….

Do You Know Who WE Are?

27 years of quality, service and commitment to our employees and customers.

This weekend we had our two last Holiday Parties for our Panama City Beach and Niceville Office employees. I would like to thank all of those that came and especially those that were involved in planning and running the events. Each year these events get better and I think everyone has a nice relaxing time. Most of all I believe that seeing people in person strengthens relationships and builds trust.

DoD Techlink Office to Release Article Highlighting BRC’s CORE Artificial Intelligence Tools

Yesterday I announced that we have started a promotional program to get the word out about our extensive experience over the past 27 years in Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning. Today I would like to announce that the Department of Defense Techlink office has written a Techlink article about our CORE toolkit that will be published as soon as it is approved for public release by the DOD Public Relations office. The evaluator that interviewed me for the story made the following comments when he passed the information about CORE on to Techlink’s editing team, “Honestly I doubt we will see another story with such advanced capabilities in our lifetime…… Once you read both documents you will understand the impact this technology does or will have on artificial intelligence in the immediate future.” The reviewer was talking about how the CORE toolkit gives non-AI experts the capability to quickly and easily build advanced AI/ML algorithms for their live, virtual and constructive applications.

2 Exciting Announcements for 2019 From Bevilacqua Research Corporation

BRC Logo

Every year I like to give a “State of the Company” address at the company Christmas party. However as we have grown to almost 350 employees in 15 states and have 4-5 different Christmas parties spread over the months of December and January, it has become increasingly difficult for me to share company news. I hope this blog will provide a way for us to overcome that difficulty by establishing open communications among our many employees distributed across the US as well as others outside of BRC that have an interest in and can benefit from the topics we hope to discuss. These will range from internal company news items to technology, Business mentoring and advice, and other topics of general interest to the Department of Defense contracting and customer communities…..SO…here we go….Edition 1, January 4, 2019.
