The real world is offline. The processors in your laptop can’t communicate with the atoms in the table it’s sitting on. It might seem obvious right now, but that’s only because nobody’s discovered a way to translate the physical world into data.
It’s a big problem if you want to train Artificial Intelligence to understand the real world. And without meaningful digital analysis, industries can’t grow.
This is especially the case with inherently physical industries such as Infrastructure, that lack the automation and transparency that’s transformed online industries. Infrastructure contributes 61% of the UK’s waste. The result is an estimated $5.2 trillion direct economic loss per year. But, from roads and railways to clean drinking water, Infrastructure matters to people and businesses everywhere.
Fixing this problem will unlock tremendous value in fundamentally important offline sectors, and enable many emerging technologies to reduce waste and create a future of sustainable growth.
That’s where we come in.
Sensat’s mission is to build the third platform, an intelligent eco-system that translates the real world into a version understandable to AI. This technology will help us to build a more sustainable future, using the wealth of new insight to help people make better decisions.
We do this by using drone, laser and satellite technologies to create digital representations of real-world locations—then infusing real time data sets from a variety of sources. The result is an accurate, digital and up to date copy of the real world in a machine-readable format.
This technology will help us to build a more sustainable future, using the wealth of new insight to help humans make better decisions.
This is an exciting time to be joining one of the UK's fastest-growing tech startups on our next phase of growth.
