EarthLab Luxembourg was founded in 2015 to offer innovative services for professionals managing multiple hazards. It uses 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 highly 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 to the end-user needs applying adequate technologies and extraction of information. We believe that platforms combining the 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. We can propose and run advanced services related to risk exposure for insurance, strategic assessment, and asset management concerns in public and private sector with our modular approach. 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 Platform as a Service concept relies on our dedicated hybrid cluster allowing our customers to use our solutions to create new products, optimize their losses in case of extreme events, and adapt their strategies using predictive analytics. We offer a clear valorization 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 dealing 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 deliver remote access to our customers to push their data and run their code on our data farm. A key advantage is that there is no ICT workload to set up, configure, and maintain with our platform. We provide a dynamic vulnerability scoring in terms of operations, the resilience of communities, supply chain, and environment. We use in-house simulation models using analytics & cognitive science to anticipate the next landscape of significant risks. We enrich risk models by creating information thanks to automatic recognition into massive datasets to give context to risk assessment. We also aggregate thousands of datasets from socio and economic indicators in real-time, allowing us to predict the consequences of extreme situations (natural disaster, endemic 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 correlated with the local exploitation and the insured assets.
EarthLab Luxembourg implements its products and services, relying on its private infrastructure. The implemented technologies follow the “Big Data” paradigms and fully subscribe to an elastic model ensuring future large-scale capacities.
- Data analysis: integrating 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 intelligence techniques. 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 critical success factors or KPI, and to limit its implementation cost
The current EarthLab Luxembourg’s client base is insurance, financial services, industrial companies, and brokers about environmental risks and large industrial complexes concerning endemic 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
MAJOR SPACE PROJECTS
It is crucial to analyze the surface activities & the comportment in dark-fish or preservation of protected maritime areas. E.O., GNSS, & A.I. are very important: it offers the possibility of systematically analyzing all the area images. Max-ICS platform helps create or improve the A.I. models & supports the automatically scaled deployment within a public cloud.
During the COVID-19 crisis, agriculture came into the spotlight, helping to foster predictive solutions. Using different data sources & advanced analytics, EarthLab delivers various models and applications to support the domain.
EarthLab has launched an innovative solution to push the use of space data and A.I. on disaster/humanitarian response: it combines E.O. open & commercial data to feed a data processing chain defined by the actors
