“To help reduce the impact of flooding, a number of flood monitoring firms are now using artificial intelligence (AI) to help them sound the alarm before the waters rise.

Based in the Norwegian city of Bergen, 7Analytics is a team of computer scientists and geologists who offer businesses and local authorities real-time flooding predictions, and let them know which areas are particularly at risk of flood damage.

‘We can actually predict, based on the weather forecasts up to seven days in advance, what flooding will happen, and it’s down to the very finest grain,’ says 7Analytics co-founder Jonas Torland.”
