    Brian Drake, Defense Intelligence Agency Science and Technology director of Artificial Intelligence shares results of the SABLE SPEAR program during the DIA DoDIIS Worldwide Conference, Aug. 20, 2019, at the Tampa Convention Center in Florida.

    Fentanyl kills approximately 24,000 Americans every year. This is the equivalent of an airliner falling out of the sky every day. The White House designated the threat of fentanyl a national health emergency. As part of DIA’s support to defense elements in the counternarcotics mission, the Americas Regional Center (AMRC) commissioned SABLE SPEAR. SABLE SPEAR is a mass data analytics effort using open sources and machine learning to understand the synthetic opioid supply chain from “nature to needle.” SABLE SPEAR ingests large datasets residing on the Internet, looks for indicators of illegal or suspicious activity, and surfaces military, diplomatic, and law enforcement opportunities to abate the threat.
