VODA.ai is a company that uses artificial intelligence to virtually assess the condition and risk of each pipe segment in a water system.
VODA.ai works in three steps:
When the Consequence of Failure (CoF) is added, a Business Risk Exposure (BRE) score is quickly calculated and provided on the User Interface or on the integrated system, like ESRI.
Managers and engineers want to create effective operating and capital planning programs to lower their non-revenue water, improve customer satisfaction, and keep their workers safe – while staying within their budget.
Yet up to 70% of water is lost due to pipe failures, customer service is disrupted with each break, emergency crews are often called in during night hours, and pipes that are replaced often have over 5 years of remaining life left – incurring costs that could have been used elsewhere.
VODA.ai will help you identify more than 50% of pipes that will break before they actually do and place them at the top of your priority list. This helps create short term operating programs and long term capital plans.
daVinci ML has proven to be 3x more accurate than the historical breaks model and up to 65 times more accurate than age model.
VODA.ai uses utility data, public data, and proprietary interaction variables. With network effects – the more data VODA.ai’s daVinci ML ingests, the smarter daVinci ML becomes and the better the results are for utilities.
VODA.ai stands out in two areas:
VODA.ai is serving water for their utilities distribution, transmission, service lines as well as wasterwater utilities for their collection systems.
The kick-off meeting always takes place in person (temporarily virtual due to COVID-19). You’ll be assigned a project manager and will always have access to the CEO, George.
After receiving your data, we’ll process it, ask you questions to ensure that the data is clean, and complete the analysis.
We’ll present the results to your team and go live with the system. Once a quarter, we’ll refresh your data so you have the latest assessment of your system.
Many utilities don’t have clean data and we’ve adapted to it. Our data scientists and engineers have created methods to handle data that needs extra love. As long as you have at least 3 years worth of pipe failures and are willing to work with us to clean your data, VODA.ai’s daVinci ML will make it work and you’ll be happy.
You always own your data and we’ll never share your data. VODA.ai’s daVinci ML learns from all the data it ingests but never actually uses your unique data set for anything other than to assess your system. You can choose to opt-out of helping daVinci ML learn from your data.
We take security seriously and are happy to share our security policy prior to a commercial agreement.
When you give us your data, you can withhold your last year’s breaks. We’ll predict these breaks as if they didn’t happen yet and show you the results. You’ll see that our prioritization method is more accurate than anything else out there.
Pricing depends on the market, utility size, and length of the contract. We work directly with each utility to ensure we are developing a customized price that is both competitive and matched to the specific needs of the customer.
You are open to partner with VODA.ai as frequently or infrequently as you like. The benefit of having an ongoing subscription is always having a recent view of your network’s health, which could be different than just a few months ago.
Artificial intelligence, or AI, is the ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings.
Artificial intelligence finds patterns and provides insights faster and more accurately than humans to help make informed decisions. AI helps computers use human reasoning as a model for learning and adapting to better meet our customer’s needs.
Machine learning, or ML, is an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed.
Here are some of the benefits water utilities realize when partnering with VODA.ai:
VODA.ai’s software assesses the condition of every pipe segment with daVinci ML, our AI super-engine. VODA.ai uses a three-step process:
Machine learning (ML), is a subset practice of artificial intelligence (AI). AI is the overall concept of computers operating in an intelligent manner – meaning they do not just follow pre-programmed explicit instructions. ML is how these computers can actually learn, based on the unique environments and data they are analyzing, to continuously make solutions better.
No. We believe that artificial intelligence will be a useful virtual assistant to engineers, operators, and management for all water utilities around the world to enable personnel to work smarter and faster.
We love helping water utilities and VODA.ai’s daVinci ML becomes smarter every day. Today, we are helping engineers and operators become more efficient and create more effective plans. Tomorrow, we may also help teams that work elsewhere.
