WUI Wildfire risk modeling with Artificial Intelligence

Dynamic risk modeling using remote sensing data


  • Our solution closes the information gap for risk modeling of wildland–urban interface (WUI) areas. WUI areas are a fast expanding risk pool for insurer.

  • In 2017 alone, US wildfire damage amounted to $16.2 billion. In comparison, in the 10 year period before (2007-2016) combined losses totaled roughly $15.8 billion.

  • Risk models based on claim history have limited predictive power for WUI areas. We provide additional data sources to improve risk model accuracy.


Our Solution


Our AI-models automatically detect wildfires on satellite images and digitize & categorize this information combined with additional data sources.


Our dynamically updated risk database contains data with a very high temporal & spacial resolution worldwide.


We provide a high throughput and low latency API for accurate and continuous risk assessment.


Digitalization & Automation

Sustainable digitalization and process automation using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) methods.

Data Digitization

  • Our machine learning models intelligently extract & categorize information from satellite images, health records, PDFs, location data, identity cards and more.
  • We use state-of-the art techniques in image recognition, natural language processing and signal processing to extract & categorize information.

Process Automation

  • We automate processes with ML that otherwise require human supervision.
  • We work on applications ranging from predictive maintenance in manufacturing to underwriting insurance risks.
  • We transfer existing processes into formal specifications that can be solved by ML-methods.

Prototyping

  • We believe that ML-solutions are best developed with iterative end-to-end prototypes.
  • This allows us to ensure that data quality & availability and model complexity reflect the business objective.
  • We develop prototypes that fulfill all critical requirements of the production system.
