Eightfold Selected as AI Platform for Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) GigEagle Application


Eightfold Talent Intelligence Platform Will Match Reservists and National Guard Members with Defense Projects

Eightfold AI, the leader in AI-powered talent intelligence, in partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp., the Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider, announced that they have been awarded an Other Transaction (OT) prototype contract for the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU), an organization within the Department of Defense (DoD), to develop and deploy a talent intelligence platform to identify currently undiscoverable expertise for the Department.

Eightfold's Talent Intelligence Platform will power a talent marketplace app titled "GigEagle," which matches DoD mission needs with military personnel, specifically Reservists and National Guard members, seeking short-term, project-based duties. The Eightfold platform will help more easily and closely connect DoD project managers with personnel that can best contribute to digital skill gaps on short-term projects.

"Eightfold's addition to Carahsoft's AI portfolio solves a critical need for government agencies to revolutionize their talent operations through both speed and intelligence," said Patrick Gallagher, Vice President of Sales at Carahsoft. "This added level of intelligence that matches individual skills with short-term project requirements is pivotal for service members and the Defense Department as the organization scales its strategic and highly innovative 'gig' program."

"We are excited to enable DIU's vision as they tap into their highly diverse and skilled talent network that is already committed to delivering on defense projects," said Kamal Ahluwalia, President of Eightfold AI. "It is gratifying to see how the sophistication of our AI, in combination with our modern user interface, advanced security, and unmatched scalability can bolster the competitive advantage of commercial and public sector organizations alike."
