Fighting Fire with Visual Data: An Open Platform for Visual Data Management and AI-Powered Risk Scoring



  • How Intel’s open AI and visual data management innovation can help transform wildfire risk mitigation for Electric T&D, answering these questions:
    1. Where are my assets?
    2. What’s around my assets?
    3. What’s in service?
    4. What needs maintenance?
    5. What should be prioritized?
  • How utilities and SIs can develop and run their own AI solutions while keeping control of their valuable IP
  • The business impact of integrated geovisual data management with artificial intelligence on downstream systems like EAM, GIS & ERP

Intense regulatory and market pressures are driving utilities to develop more scalable and cost-efficient solutions to manage risks from aging assets, vegetation encroachment and wildfires. To achieve this goal, utilities and their SI partners need better tools to manage and extract intelligence from their visual data. Instead of building these solutions from the ground up, utilities are asking for a platform that helps them leverage their visual data for better operational planning and management.

This webinar will cover Intel’s underlying visual data management and Intel AI technology, wildfire mitigation use cases, and the business impact of integrating geovisual data management with AI on downstream systems like EAM, GIS & ERP.

Intel will talk about how their open, extensible visual data management and AI platform creates new opportunities for utilities and SIs to take control of their data and run AI to get the insights they need. Utilities can create and run their own custom AI models, while maintaining control over their custom IP, preventing vendor lock-in.
