Value of data
"With this experience, we also decided to attend the Vietwater Conference & Exhibition. I walked around the exhibition floor and I honestly did not see any other company that is engaged in artificial intelligence and building predictive models to the same extent and at the same level as we are. So we see attractive opportunities and the contacts that we made certainly confirm this. We met several very interesting Dutch organisations that recognise the value of data and AI solutions and with whom we have identified synergies. We will be discussing future partnerships. Our strategic partner Royal HaskoningDHV, who has a branch in Vietnam, also helped us with valuable contacts before the event. As a result, the trip to Vietnam was already successful before Vietwater had even started. The efforts of the Netherlands Embassy and Consulate were also very valuable. I met many people at the opening dinner at the Consulate, and this gave us a head start."
"In all our contacts during Vietwater, we experienced genuine interest in what we can offer the water world. This includes operational and predictive water level management, optimisation of water distribution, decrease in pollution, optimised energy usage and decrease in environmental impact. An example case is a flood prediction solution we built for a UK river network. Based on data from water level sensors, rainfall gauges and geospatial information, our team built a model to predict short-term river levels and flooding instances. By enabling optimised planning and targeted flood response, our solution can support government in keeping people safer, while efficiently using resources and saving costs."
