Mitiga started as a spin-off from the National Supercomputing Center in Spain, which hosts MareNostrum, one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe. From there, we set out to brige the gap between boundary-pushing science and forward-looking businesses.
“Through machine learning, we can transfer data from data-rich countries to
data-scarce ones. Our methodology allows us to fill in the data gaps for every hazard we cover, and AI is allowing us to have that global footprint”
