Case Study

GE DIGITAL

Project overview

GE DIGITAL

  • GE Digital is the software branch of GE.
  • 4,000+ employees.
  • $ 1 billion in annual revenue.
Deployment of visual intelligence solutions for the T&D sector.
Today, global T&D utilities spend millions of dollars every year on vegetation management and asset inspection programs. These legacy programs are costly, ineffective, and underutilize existing data. With the introduction of artificial intelligence, it is possible to discover new ways to plan and analyze grid networks and optimize systems and processes, all at scale. These changes can reduce outages while increasing compliance, improving safety, and reducing the possibility of catastrophic events such as wildfires or major regional outages.
GE Digital and Alteia have partnered to develop GE Visual Intelligence, a Visual Data Management Platform that embraces new remote sensing technology and A.I. This partnership will fundamentally alter the way GE Digital operates. With A.I, they will harness the power of existing data accumulated on their network and move towards a single source of truth across their portfolio. The future of business will be based on predictive models and a condition-based approach for operations.
