Amelia: The Virtual Assistant Empowering U.S. Navy Sailors Onboard and Onshore

The U.S. Navy is developing an AI-powered virtual assistant named Amelia, capable of understanding emotions and providing answers sourced from authorized data and aimed at supporting sailors both at sea and on land.

“We’re excited about the unsupervised learning in Amelia because the benefits and mission outcomes we measure if we partner well -with [General Dynamics Information Technology] and [Amazon Web Services] here- will be compounding, this is part of larger campaign to make [information technology] invisible so our nation’s defenders have more energy to put on mission,” said Justin Fanelli, acting chief technology officer at the Department of the Navy.
