Did you say Preligens?
Preligens was created in 2016 by two French engineers on the belief that intelligence professionals would never be able to cope with the tsunami of data made available by satellite images, infrared, electromagnetic streams, social network feeds and press. They came up with the idea of using artificial intelligence to automate the analysis of this multisource data and tip and cue the analysts towards "unusual" events requiring their expertise.
