The organization is licensing Seerist and its Foreign Influence platform to be part of an advanced curriculum program to develop intelligence analyst candidates.
RESTON, VA, 7 November 2023 – Seerist Inc., the leading augmented analytics solution for intelligence, threat, and security professionals, announced it has signed a new multi-year agreement with Norwich University, a private senior military college in Vermont, to be used by students in its educational curriculum.
Norwich has created a curriculum with advanced courses to train and certify students to become analysts in the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC), the Department of Defense (DOD), Fusion Centers, and the private sector. To ensure its graduates are recognized as highly competitive candidates when they enter the job market, the university is offering courses on specific requirements, including the use of Seerist, to achieve GEOINT certification.
“Offering our students the best education and relevant experiences and preparing them to become highly competitive individuals is paramount to every decision we make and every course we offer,” said Sharon R. Hamilton, Ph.D., Colonel (Ret.), U.S. Army and Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Norwich University. “We believe that graduates who have a working knowledge of the Seerist platform will be even more attractive to future employers, and we are very excited to offer this unique opportunity to our students.”
Students will gain experience using Seerist’s OSINT-based solution to forecast potential threats, identify current threats, track trends and patterns of instability, and contextualize threat events. Seerist combines artificial intelligence and human analysis from geopolitical and security experts to assess unfolding threat events and provide strategic insight and recommendations. Students will also leverage Seerist’s Foreign Influence Risk Index (FIRI) solution that presents a data-driven dashboard to gather, track, and analyze global foreign influence activities in real-time.
“Norwich is a leading institution in cybersecurity, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning; functions that align with what we do at Seerist,” said Jim Brooks, Seerist’s CEO. “It’s exciting to be a part of this opportunity and have a hand in helping strengthen the skill sets of the world’s future intelligence analysts to prepare to enter the workforce and advance the field.”
