EarthLab Luxembourg was formed in 2015 to offer innovative services for professionals managing multiple hazards, integrating earth observation data with varied sources of information, such as aerial imagery, crowdsourced pictures, social media, trade and markets datasets, internal exposure databases or ground sensors. With extremely innovative techniques like Deep Learning or Computer Vision and data-streams processing capabilities, we are helping to identify, treat and proactively act on underlying factors generating cumulative effects. EarthLab Luxembourg creates tailored applications directly oriented on the end-user needs applying the adequate technologies and extraction of information. We believe that platforms combining latest technological developments, artificial intelligence, Big Data and interoperability will standardize and bring a new definition of data centric projects and a new community of users. With our modular approach we can propose and run advanced services related to risk exposure for insurance, strategic assessment and asset management concerns in the public and private sector. Thanks to our science skills and earth observation insights we offer a new vision on multiple risks that span beyond any geographical border and for which the interlinked consequences are underestimated. The concept of the Platform as A Service is based on our dedicated hybrid cluster allowing our customers to use our solutions to create new products, optimize their losses in case of extreme event and adapt their strategies using predictive analytics. We offer a clear valorisation of the data by creating multiple potential uses into one single central toolbox.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES
We develop a highly flexible and data centric platform that allows to deal with the landscape of global risks. Our solutions are built on high-power computing to support decision makers in the event of risk manifestations, providing detailed, timely and relevant information. We provide to our customers a remote access to push their data and run their code on our data farm. A key advantage is that with our platform there is no ICT workload to setup, configure and maintain. We provide a dynamic vulnerability scoring in terms of operations, resilience of communities, supply chain and environment. We use in-house simulations models using analytics & cognitive science to anticipate the next landscape of major risks. We enrich risks models by creating information thanks to automatic recognition into massive datasets in order to give context to risk assessment. We also aggregate in real time thousands of datasets from socio and economic indicators allowing us to predict consequences of extreme situations (natural disaster, manmade accident, political event, pandemics, etc...).
Our different product lines provide end users with a central representation of the risks based on data feeds agglomeration and simulations based on different scenarios with a correlation with the local exploitation and the insured assets.
EarthLab Luxembourg implements its proper products and services relying on its private infrastructure. The implemented technologies are following the “Big Data” paradigms and fully subscribe to an elastic model ensuring future large scale capacities.
- Data analysis: integration of data from multiple sources, whether structured or not, in real time or not, such as Earth observation, weather, social networks, financial and economic indicators, terrestrial sensors, connected objects and proprietary data.
- Data Modelling: one of our priorities is to correlate different raw data to extract relevant information, KPIs, or metrics. Our data processing resides in the development of automated treatments, learning mechanisms and a cognitive approach.
- Our Max-ICS platform: we create solutions that are directly oriented to the needs of end-users, integrating next-generation artificial intelligencetechniques. Our customers can easily access and manage their uses by interacting with an ICT infrastructure fully developed and operated by EarthLab Luxembourg.
- We work in Lean Start-up mode to limit the risks associated with the creation of new services. This concept is frequently used in the ICT sector for the development of Minimum Viable Product (MVP), using key success factors or KPI, and to limit its implementation cost
The current EarthLab Luxembourg’s client base is insurance companies, financial services and industrial companies as well as brokers with regard to environmental risks and large industrial complexes with regard to man-made hazards.
We are processing highly innovating projects in collaboration with our four shareholders, coming from geo-information, telecommunications and ICT: Telespazio France, e-GEOS, HITEC Luxembourg and POST Luxembourg Group. We are acting in the open source and open data communities to share data science knowledge for communities.
