AI.Reverie Awarded $1.5M AFWERX Phase 2 SBIR Contract from U.S. Air Force

Top synthetic data company to support the mission by improving navigation via computer vision

NEW YORK - July 13, 2020 - PRLog -- AI.Reverie, the leader in synthetic data for improved artificial intelligence, today announced that it has been awarded a $1.5 million Phase 2 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract by AFWERX to build AI algorithms and improve navigation capabilities for the United States Air Force.

AI.Reverie will be supporting the 7th Bomb Wing at Dyess Air Force Base through their Rapid Capabilities office by leveraging synthetic data to train and improve the accuracy of vision algorithms for navigation. The use of synthetic data, or computer-generated images, solves the resource barriers associated with real data: the high cost and slow turnaround of hand-labeled photos stalls deployment of vision algorithms needed to save lives.

"We are delighted to be awarded this Phase 2 SBIR contract and look forward to partnering with the U.S. Air Force's 7th Bomb Wing on this project," said Daeil Kim, CEO and Co-founder of AI.Reverie. "Our goal is to equip soldiers to successfully navigate any situation, and we are proud to contribute to the United States military's mission to protect our country."

"As the world has gotten smaller, the ability to navigate based on visual terrain features has become an ever increasing challenge. Computer vision algorithms can be trained to recognize these world-wide terrain features by ingesting large amounts of diverse data," said Anthony Bunker, Maj, USAF. "We are excited to collaborate with AI.Reverie to improve navigation capabilities given the company's ability to generate fully annotated data at scale with its synthetic data platform."

AI.Reverie's Phase 2 SBIR contract closely follows its co-publication with the IQT Lab CosmiQ Works of a paper highlighting the value of synthetic data to train computer vision algorithms. The research partners also released RarePlanes, the largest open dataset of real and synthetic overhead imagery for academic and commercial use.

Aug 13, 2020

NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream. Both went off-shoulder for the big night in Beverly Hills, California. Erivo, the “Harriet” star and fashion standout, said her dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve gown, Erivo told E!, took 800 hours. A huge blue stone dropped from her short necklace. Shades of pink had an early trend moment on Kirsten Dunst...

Solidarity march against anti-Semitism, acts of hate

Aug 13, 2020

NEW YORK — Throngs of demonstrators joined by elected officials walked solemnly across the Brooklyn Bridge in a solidarity march Sunday against anti-Semitism and all acts of hate. The “No Hate, No Fear" march was organized by New York's Jewish community in the wake of recent anti-Semitic attacks, including a knife attack at a Hanukkah celebration north of New York City that left five people wounded and a fatal shootout at a kosher grocery in Jersey City, New Jersey. The crowds of participants jammed the streets in lower Manhattan as they waited their turns to get across the bridge. “It...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Aug 13, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Aug 13, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Aug 13, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
