An Open Network for the World's Geospatial Analytics

The Flyingcarpet network provides organizations and smart contracts with geospaital truth. Data scientists compete to create machine learning models from satellite imagery. Models are tradable via NFT ownership tokens.

Aerial Data as a Source of Truth

Models are created for new geospatial use cases via a decentralized competition of data scientists. Competition funding is incentivised via model ownership NFTs that encapsulate all future model revenue. As smart contract oracles, these models enable game-changing decentralized applications, such as parametric insurance where pre- and post-state satellite analytics can trigger automated claims.

From DAOs, to insurance companies, to agri-companies, to governments, the Flyingcarpet network enables actionable insights through rich AI-powered analytics.

Coconut Fields

Namaliu, a farmer in Papua New Guinea, has a problem. He wastes countless days walking up and down his coconut plantation with a clipboard and pen, manually counting his yield and inspecting his trees. The machine learning model instead processes visual data of Namaliu's plantation, extracting insights and analytics about its projected harvest.

Now, not only can he track theft and monitor yield much more effectively, he can also sell the analytics to third parties, such as government bodies or commodity traders.

Digitising Infrastructure

Infrastructure projects are incredibly costly, typically involve multiple stakeholders, and can be dangerous for the feet on the ground. A machine learning model can process the visual data relating to the bridge and extract insights and analytics about its condition.

Any abnormalities or weak sections are identified and rectified before they become costly - or deadly - problems. Flyingcarpet models can analyse a huge range of infrastructure, including rooftops, roads and power lines.

Setting Insurance on Fire

Insurance claims often take years to settle, payments are based on generic historical data, and brokers typically take a hefty 25% commission. With Flyingcarpet, a machine learning model determines the physical state of insured locations by processing raw satellite imagery gathered both before and after natural disasters occur.

By building on top of the decentralized Ethereum blockchain, insurers and customers operate within a commission-less protocol, enabling participants to capture all network value.
