Cignal LLC Awarded Phase 1 Funding by DHS S&T Svip

Company Creates High-Fidelity Synthetic Data to Train Artificial Intelligence Models

Cignal LLC, a technology startup that develops cutting-edge capabilities for the rapid training and deployment of advanced inspection and security systems, announced that it was awarded Phase 1 project funding by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP).

During this project, Cignal will enhance its working prototype and training workflow product, Cignal Workbench, to generate high-fidelity synthetic volumetric data for Computed Tomography (CT) applications and Advanced Technology (AT) X-ray inspection systems. The result will be a virtually unlimited source of labeled training data, leading to automated and continuous training of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) models.

AI models rely on large amounts of labeled training data to learn, and generating this data for screening applications currently is a labor-intensive, manual process. However, Cignal’s creation of synthetic data to train AI models eliminates the need for manual image labeling while increasing the overall amount of quality training data.
