FRONTEO Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President: Masahiro Morimoto, hereinafter FRONTEO) has recently obtained a huge amount of information from open sources such as securities reports and press releases distributed by companies. Developed a new AI engine "LooCA Cross (trademark pending)" that extracts the connection between a company listed on various sanctions list and a specific company or organization (entity), and developed the AI. We will start providing supply chain analysis services using the world's first supply chain analysis system "Seizu Analysis (trademark pending)".


With the existence of human rights risks in the supply chain and growing interest and concern about the export of technologies and products that can be used for military purposes, it is urgent for companies to evaluate the soundness of their own and business partners' supply chains and acquisitions in M ​​& A. I am. Since we started providing supply chain network analysis solutions in June 2021, many companies have asked us if their supply chain contains risky companies or if there is a risk of violating various export control regulations. I have received a consultation.By providing a supply chain network analysis service that uses the newly developed AI and a network analysis system equipped with it, a sanction list (eg, the Bureau of Industry and Security of the US Department of Commerce) will be set in the company's supply chain. It is possible to check whether the entity list etc. is included and respond to the company's request to prepare for possible risks.


New AI engine "Loo CA Cross"


By connecting the information of shareholders and business partners of companies around the world, a huge and complicated supply chain network and holding network emerge.It is almost impossible for humans to analyze how goods and services flow and how control is transmitted in these networks.FRONTEO has developed a new AI engine "LooCA Cross" to capture the flow of goods in a network and the propagation of force in a network that cannot be analyzed by human power. With LooCA Cross, you can find potential risky routes, chokepoint companies, and remote control of companies from a great distance from a huge number of apparent trading channels. Will be able to be found. LooCA Cross is an AI that helps you formulate strategies for economic security by finding meaningful connections in a vast network.


Supply chain network analysis system "Seizu Analysis"


"Seizu Analysis" can analyze a huge supply chain based on the information obtained from open source and extract the connection between specific entities (such as companies that are judged to be unfavorable for transactions) from it. Is possible.Normally, when a company tries to check the health of its supply chain on its own, it is said that it can only track secondary and tertiary suppliers, but Seizu Analysis can track up to a dozen or more suppliers ahead. ..


 FRONTEO will continue to develop solutions in order to provide information useful for understanding the current situation, visualizing risks, and formulating measures for Japanese companies facing the newly emerging issue of economic security. , We will support Japanese companies in risk management and strategic response to compliance risks.
