SETEC selects Alteia to support its digital transformation as their core platform for visual intelligence.

Alteia announced today a strategic agreement with Setec to provide its technology stack to support Setec digital transformation.

With the Setec Capture Platform, Setec plans to develop and deploy A.I-based applications for reverse engineering and smarter maintenance operations – starting with the digitization of roads and railways and automatic classification (guardrails, road markings, signs, etc.) and expanding to additional lines of business eventually (bridge and infrastructure inspection) – to enable Setec to better serve customers with increased efficiency.

Alteia was selected after a rigorous evaluation process that ultimately validated the maturity‚ scalability‚ and extensibility of Alteia’s platform as a service (PaaS) and the unique business value of Alteia in the field of visual intelligence. The Alteia technology stack enables Setec to aggregate and store gigantic volumes of disparate data (ranging from single images to point clouds, a set of data points in space that represent a 3D shape or object) in a unified data image and employ A.I and machine learning at scale‚ in near-real time‚ to make predictions that address critical business needs.

“The Setec Capture Platform is combining data science with engineering services‚ transforming how we develop and deliver services in reverse engineering and maintenance, and stay ahead of our competition. With tangible business results from our initial applications‚ we plan on scaling the platform across our organization. We are delighted to partner with Alteia, which has an exciting vision‚ proven technology‚ and demonstrated customer success” says Alexis Mariani, Director of Digital Engineering at Setec.

“Setec is a true innovator igniting digital transformation across their enterprise‚” says Benjamin Benharrosh‚ Co-founder at Alteia. “Setec ability to apply data science to transform business operations and create customer value will drive the organization as a leader far into the 21st century. We look forward to working with Setec to bring their vision to reality.”

In addition to building new applications on the Setec Capture Platform‚ Setec plans to customize and extend the functionality of pre-built SaaS applications available in the Alteia portfolio‚ including point cloud classification and construction site monitoring.
