WHAT WE DO
Quantum Ventura Inc is essentially a technology innovation company with a single mission of delivering customer-centric advanced solutions to US Federal & State Governments and Private Sector customers.
Our Core offerings:
Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning: We specialize in developing tools and applications using CNN, RNN, Reinforcement Learning, Denoising Auto-encoders, Generative Adversarial Networks(GAN) and Bayesian Anomaly Detection Algorithms in the areas of cyber-security, Automated Vehicle Tracking, Real-time Video Analytics, Sensor Fusion, Cognitive Computing, Synthetic Data Generation and other Computer-Vision driven applications.
AI/ML Verification & Validation (V&V) of applications: By leveraging open-source tools and frameworks, our AI verification & validation tools will identify areas of concern, exceptions, red flags & vulnerable areas and provide remedial action for each application. By utilizing our Risk Framework, Assumption and Safety Violation framework, we will generate a Certificate of Robustness (COR) as the final outcome. Our tools will have 3 components DNN Toolkit, Bayesian Uncertainty Modeling and Probabilistic Verifier covering CNN. Once the AI/ML application goes into production, our Intelligent Run-time Agent (IRA) will provide 24 x7 monitoring to evaluate the production system and provide protective measures and insights. Our V&V tools will be available both as a service and as an installable product.
QuantumX Research Labs: Our core R&D areas include Advanced Machine Learning, AI/ML Verification & Validation (V&V) Tools, Neuromorphic Computing, Linux-kernel based software tools, Cyber Security, Blockchain, Quantum Computing and Sensor Systems.
Cyber Security: ‣ Red & Blue Team Services ‣ Dark Web & Cyber Monitoring ‣ Penetration Testing
Secure Mobile Technology: Diamond-Droid - We have recently launched a groundbreaking Android kernel-based secure mobile technology, "Diamond-Droid". For further details, refer below.
AI/ML/ Hyperspectral Imaging/ Neuromorphic/ Cybersecurity related topics:
DARPA: "AI Verification with provable guarantees" using advanced AI verification tools.
Partner: NC State University
Navy Air Warfare: "Certification of AI Systems - CORSI" using Advanced AI to certify AI/ML applications. (Phase 1 and Phase 2 SBIRs)
Partner: Lockheed Martin.
Missile Defense Agency: "Hypersonic Threat Detection" using bio-inspired processing, neuromorphic computing and Advanced AI. (Phase 1 STTR)
Partners: University of Florida and Lockheed Martin.
Navy Air Warfare: "Detection of UAVs and rogue drones using hyperspectral Imaging" (SBIR Phase 1).
Partners: Bodkin Imaging and Lockheed
Navy Air Warfare: "Vulnerability detection of source code using advanced AI/ML" - SBIR Phase 1
Homeland Security: "Opioid/contraband detection using hyperspectral imaging" - SBIR Phase 1
Department of Energy: "Cyber threat-detection using neuromorphic computing" - SBIR Phase 1
DOE-funded E-RECOV technology to extract precious metals and rare earth minerals:
Department of Energy: "Extraction of precious metals and rare earth minerals from electronic waste", a high-priority project for DOE/DOD needs.
Partner: Idaho National Labs (a DOE-funded FFRDC)
In collaboration with Idaho National Labs (INL), a federally funded research institution and Colt Refining & Recycling Inc, Quantum Ventura Inc has been selected for the STTR Phase 2 award from the Department of Energy.
During Phase 2, we are building a 7kg/day E-RECOV prototype plant and extract precious metals and rare-earths from e-waste. E-RECOV technology recovers more metal from waste electronics such as cell phones, hard disks etc, reduces chemical reagent use and lessens the toxicity of remaining materials. E-RECOV is 30% cheaper than conventional recovery technologies. E-RECOV extracts both precious metals and other metals. In addition, it extracts valuable and nationally critical rare-earth metals that are currently vulnerable to supply disruptions. The supply disruption of rare-earth minerals, which have a limited supply within the US would be a devastating blow to the US economy.
QuantumX is a product offered by Quantum Ventura that utilizes the Diamond-Droid technology
Owned and licensed by Diamondbay Technologies Inc, Diamond-Droid is one of the world's most secure and hardened Android Kernel for unsurpassed mobile security
Robust Kernel Security
For Android and IOT Devices
Currently, there are no robust kernel level military grade security protection available for android based devices including IOT which can prevent sensitive data leaks. Application level and file folder level policy frameworks are attack-prone.
Offers highest levels of Security
Our path-breaking kernel based security framework built around a modified, hardened Linux kernel, offers one of the highest possible levels of security for any android device. Our kernel resident security software framework" Diamond-Droid", can safely and securely intercept, deceive and defeat any "prohibited" event at the system level. Any number of such "Prohibited event filters" can be programmed and added as a loadable kernel module (LKM) with trust verification.
Fused Deep inside the Kernel
The Core Diamond-Droid Kernel Filter mechanism is fused deep inside the modified Android/ Linux kernel and is hard to reach by any hacker. Several checks and balances are incorporated in the patented software which keeps a continuous watch on the kernel files.
Diamond-Droid is securely installed in the modified android kernel of every mobile phone. Diamond-Droid filters provide the power and flexibility to be customized for the unique needs of the user.
QuantumX Technology/Diamond-DROID Platforms & USE-cases
Most of the solutions offered today are Application Level and File Folder Level policy frameworks that are easily compromised by an experienced hacker. QuantumX is not an Application-Layer-Based program, it resides inside the Android/Linux Kernel which is beyond the reach of a user.
Diamond-Droid will run on the following platforms/devices:
•Any mobile phone running Android
•Android / Linux based embedded devices including IOT devices. (changes will be implemented and tested by OEM vendors)
•Android smart watches
•All Linux based devices that need security
Our Target Clients
•Government Sector: Department of Defense , Department of Homeland Security and other Government agencies where data protection and privacy issues are of paramount importance.
•Corporate Sector: Corporate users who are concerned about data protection and prevention of IP theft and sensitive corporate data.
•Any OEM hardware device that runs on Android/Linux
•Mobile Payment Processors - We can convert a mobile phone into a Secure Payment Terminal which is a huge market.
•Android Wearable Device Vendors
•Android power-users who want to secure their Android Phones
•IOT manufacturers and IOT developers
Sample Use Cases
•i) Deny access to a specific high security or sensitive file, or even a specific piece of data record within the file;
•ii) Alert the user if data attempts to leave the device through the network interface;
•iii) Alter the return value by returning fake/empty data or some junk data fooling the hacker;
•iv) Trigger a warning email or pop up when there is a biometric verification query;
•v) Send "watch out" messages to administrators remotely or perform additional control functions on the cloud;
The list is endless and any type of restrictive functions can be programmed.
•In short, Droid Kernel Filters are similar to real-time Security Agents which can be programmed to do specific security control functions but these Security filters are at the most secure kernel level with significant checks and balances.
•Moreover, Droid Kernel Filters can provide the same level of security that other technologies currently provide. We will have all the benefits of an open OS like Android yet provide the highest level security.
