We are Building the World’s First Digital Twin to Enhance Our Climate Resilience

  • We start with hazards like earthquakes, floods and windstorms. In the United States alone, we have 630 million earthquake data points from seismic hazard maps; 1.8 billion flood data points; and 57 million wind hazard data points.
  • We then map those hazards to networks, including substations, power lines, seaports, buildings, bridges, highways and so on.
  • Finally, we analyze vulnerability factors such as damage ratio, downtime and recovery curves to predict both direct and indirect impact and recovery period.
