Grants, Contracts and Funds

PI for WRT-1010: ~$4 million over 2 years (2018-2020) for DoD/Picatinny Arsenal.
The project leveraged on Natural Language Processing to develop 2 systems: a Risk evaluation interactive panel and a Technology monitoring system, both based on metrics extracted from vectorized text. The team was composed by about 25 great people.

PI for WRT-1023: ~$500k in 2020 for the Defense Acquisition University. The project - based on Natural Language Processing - was focused on creating a prototype system to classify purchase requests by contract type, using a computational version of the knowledge base of a contracting officer we created.

Co-PI for WRT-1018: ~$750k in 2020-'21 for the Defense Acquisition University. The project was focused on defining educational macro credentials in key areas. My responsibility is on Data Analytics and included 3 seminars for DAU audience.

PI for Accenture project: As 10/1 the project has a residual value of about $450K. The project has both a research and education component.

PI for Subtask WRT-1049.11: About $200K. The project will deliver a recommendation system for the DAU - Extended to mid of '23

Co-PI for Siemens Financial Services project: About $200K. The project will deliver a system to help Siemens select sustainability projects to invest in - Active

Co-PI for WRT1073: About $334K. Started in Sep. '22, ending in Sep. '23 for the Defense Acquisition University. The project is focused on defining educational credentials in AI and Data Analytics
