Machine learning technique drives patented processing for flood risk assessment

Enhancing competitive advantage in mapping tropical areas with patented capability

Expanding its portfolio of intellectual property and innovative AI/ML solutions

DENVER, March 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP; OTCQX: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in 3D geospatial products and intelligence solutions, today announced the award of two patents, expanding its portfolio of intellectual property and innovative AI/ML solutions.

One patent covers machine learning techniques that automatically measure a building’s first floor height above ground level. This measurement improves the accuracy of Intermap’s flood risk assessment capabilities to grow its market share of the U.S. and European flood insurance markets. The technology uses machine learning to inspect building frontage imagery and detect the first floor based on building features, then algorithmically measures the distance to the ground. The first-floor height above ground is a key measurement when determining the flood risk of a specific property. Intermap’s flood risk assessment solution provides property-specific flood risk information whereas other flood risk indicators are based on flood zones.

The second patent relates to producing bare-earth digital terrain models (DTM) under dense forest using airborne foliage penetrating P-band radar. This capability gives Intermap the unique capability to detect the ground through dense foliage and adjust the models of the ground below the canopy. Intermap is developing AI/ML-driven inputs to this patented process, such as automatic target detection, to enhance its terrain models. Accurate DTMs are critical for the creation of countrywide topographic basemaps used for policy formation, natural resource management, disaster management and land use planning. Ground detection through dense foliage cannot be achieved with LiDAR, IFSAR or optical photogrammetry techniques. Intermap’s patented radar and processing technology will be invaluable in supporting upcoming governmental mapping projects in tropical areas such as Southeast Asia.

“Intermap continues to expand its portfolio of IP and innovative solutions,” said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. “We pride ourselves on never being satisfied with current technology and remain at the forefront of geospatial analytics and capabilities. We incorporate AI/ML processing to develop new techniques and enhance existing processes. These new patents give us a competitive edge on upcoming national mapping projects and help the insurance industry protect clients from natural catastrophes.”

The market for fire detection is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period.
Fire detection is a critical part of any building design. They are available for residential, commercial, and industrial use. Fire detectors and control panels (including smoke, heat, and flame detectors) are essential in fire safety. They are specially used in homes for fire detection. Such systems are permanently installed to detect fires at an early stage and quickly inform the relevant emergency service. Fire detection products, such as flame detectors, smoke detectors, and heat detectors, alert the occupants through alarms and trigger automatic fire extinguishers, such as sprinklers. Successful fire prevention and protection depends on the performance of fire detection products. Thus, they are expected to offer accurate and early fire detection. A rise in new construction projects is generating demand for fire detectors due to various mandates pertaining to the compulsory installation of fire protection systems in new buildings.
The manufacturing segment is expected to gain a substantial market share during the forecast period.
Fires in manufacturing plants can be catastrophic due to the presence of large and critical structures. The manufacturing industry faces numerous fire hazards due to flammable materials, electrical equipment, dust accumulation, confined spaces, and chemical reactions. Fire protection systems are crucial in safeguarding lives, preventing property damage, mitigating environmental impact, and ensuring regulatory compliance. These systems are vital in protecting workers, reducing financial losses, and minimizing the risk of environmental pollution associated with fire incidents. The installation of fire protection systems in manufacturing plants is crucial. These products, such as fire suppressors and fire sprinklers, can extinguish fires and minimize risk, damage, and production downtime.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, March 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The Human Capability Initiative (HCI) concluded today in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, bringing in a new era in global collaboration for human capability development. HCI was held under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince, Prime Minister, and Chairman of the Human Capability Development Program (HCDP) Committee.

This groundbreaking forum gathering over 10,000 registered participants from more than 100 countries has set a precedent for international efforts in harnessing human potential, culminating in over 50 strategic partnerships and launches. These collaborations, spanning diverse sectors from education to artificial intelligence, mark significant strides toward global human capability enhancement.
Notable announcements include the Saudi Ministry of Education’s educational visa program set to make Saudi Arabia a global learning hub for over 132,000 international students, researchers, and professors, aligning with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 aspirations to attract and retain worldwide talent.
The Saudi Ministry of Education will also contribute to revolutionizing education in lower-income countries by officially joining the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) with a substantial $38 million contribution to equip young generations with the necessary skills for jobs of the future.
As the Kingdom prioritizes the future readiness of Saudi students across all disciplines, the Saudi Ministry of Education has unveiled plans to elevate its Curriculum Development Center into a national autonomous entity under the direct supervision of the Minister of Education. This revamped Center will focus on strategic curriculum planning and development aligned with international best practices and emerging global trends, preparing future generations for success in an ever-evolving world.
Further adding to the successes HCI has brought, groundbreaking education partnerships were struck between Saudi Arabia and some of the world’s biggest sector leaders including Porsche, Hyundai, LinkedIn, and IE University, leveraging the power of international collaboration to accelerate human capability development at home and abroad.
These initiatives, alongside others announced during the event, underscore HCI’s role as an enabling platform for impactful collaboration and a necessary catalyst for future-ready human capability development across the globe.
The conference featured a robust agenda, with over 100 insightful sessions led by global and local luminaries in government, industry, and academia including thoughtful future-facing discussions featuring Ministers of Education from around the world. Discussions spanned crucial topics such as the sustainability skill gap, job automation by AI, and the future of education and workforce adaptability, emphasizing the central role of human potential in addressing contemporary global challenges.
The CEO of HCDP, Engineer Anas AlMudaifer, commented: “HCI has inspired collaboration among the brightest minds in the world to future-proof people. Thought provoking ideas shared at HCI have and the thought-provoking ideas shared, and impact-driven partnerships forged today have reaffirmed that commitment. Unlocking the full potential of humanity requires global collaboration, and Saudi Arabia, as a global convenor, is sparking dynamic dialogue through HCI. The huge success of HCI has energized the world of human capability development, serving as an inspirational platform for more knowledge and collaborations to come, and more importantly, demonstrated that together, we can truly unlock the full potential of our societies.”
Saudi Arabia is undergoing a profound transformation under Vision 2030 that aims to create opportunities for citizens, open the Kingdom to the world and diversify its economy. At the heart of Vision 2030 lies the people, who embody the ambition of Saudi transformation. This belief in people is the aspiration behind the hosting of Human Capability Initiative, sparking actions among changemakers in governments, private sector and non-profit organizations globally to invest in the most valuable resource of our society – the people.
