Our job is to help you mitigate risk, increase efficiency, and maximize performance.


We utilize AI and Machine Learning techniques that transform data into insights that establish strategic and operational advantages in complex and chaotic situations.


Implement custom solutions for complex operational issues.

Partially autonomous and information learning systems have been used in military and civilian technology since the Second World War.

With continual advancements and unique capabilities of AI and Machine Learning, these approaches are critical for safeguarding national security and establishing nuclear energy as a reliable, carbon-free, clean-energy source.


We solve previously unsolvable challenges.

We successfully incorporate a client’s domain knowledge to transform their abstract data into concrete solutions that evaluate and mitigate risk, increase efficiency to save time and money, and maximize performance.

Most AI companies offer a one-size-fits-all platform that requires a client to sort through their own data to come up with a general solution to a general problem. Blue Wave AI Labs was founded to use (and understand) data to solve previously unsolvable challenges and to offer specific solutions for unique problems.

We combine the resources of academia with the experience of industry experts to provide solutions to formerly intractable problems.

Since 2016, nuclear and defense personnel have mitigated risk, increased efficiency, and driven performance with our unique blend of industry, science, engineering, AI, and mathematical expertise.

Bharat Bhargava, Ph.D.
Professor of Computer Science, Purdue University

Bharat Bhargava is a professor of the Department of Computer Science with a courtesy appointment in the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Purdue University.

Professor Bhargava is conducting research in security and privacy issues in distributed systems. This involves host authentication and key management, secure routing and dealing with malicious hosts, adaptability to attacks, and experimental studies.

His recent work is on Intelligent Autonomous Systems and data analytics and machine learning. It includes cognitive autonomy, reflexivity, deep learning and knowledge discovery. His earlier work on Waxed Prune with MIT and NGC built a prototype for privacy preserving data dissemination in cross-domains.

Based on his research in reliability, he is studying vulnerabilities in systems to assess threats to large organizations. He has developed techniques to avoid threats that can lead to operational failures. The research has direct impact on nuclear waste transport, bio-security, disaster management, and homeland security. These ideas and scientific principles are being applied to the building of secure networks and systems.

Professor Bhargava is recipient of seven best paper awards in various international computer science conferences. Professor Bhargava is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and of the Institute of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers.
