Large-Scale Multimodal Deep Learning for Nuclear Nonproliferation Analysis

Barry Chen

Executive Summary

We are developing a deep-learning neural network system to discover and assess patterns in multimodal data gathered worldwide across all media fields for indicators of nuclear proliferation capabilities and activities, revolutionizing our data analytic capabilities to support national security, nonproliferation, cyber and space security, intelligence, and biosecurity.
