New AI-Powered Predictive Maritime Intelligence
Predictive maritime intelligence company Windward announced the release of its next-generation Maritime Predictive Intelligence solution powered by Maritime Artificial Intelligence Analytics (MAIA️). Consisting of 10 billion datapoints and 300 behavioral analysis models, MAIA️ is designed to empower organizations to make smarter and faster decisions and optimize operations.
According to Windward, recent sanction advisories from both the OFSI in the U.K. and OFAC in the U.S. highlight the need for a new global standard in maritime operations, ushering in a paradigm shift in best practices affecting insurers, shipping companies, banks and traders alike. Windward said its solution provides governments with sophisticated solutions to protect national interests and citizens.
MAIA️ screens, searches and analyzes dynamic maritime data to connect the dots and discover potential risks and questionable business partners. By continuously applying MAIA️’s behavioral analysis models, Windward’s solution provides dynamic Predictive Intelligence based on vessel identity, cargo visibility, true location, voyage patterns and more. MAIA️ links this knowledge into patterns and profiles that create new insights and enable the digital transformation of the maritime ecosystem, its developer said.
“We are excited to usher in the era of Maritime 4.0, the next evolution of maritime intelligence empowering all stakeholders in the ecosystem,” said Ami Daniel, CEO of Windward. “Risk management lies at the core of any business operation, and maritime is no exception. With our Predictive Intelligence solution, we are giving authorities, banks, insurers, shipping companies and others the most comprehensive view of maritime risk and enabling the highest level of accountability and transparency.”
Voyage Irregularities is one of the many new features powered by MAIA️, providing clients with a 360° smart profile of each entity to bring transparency and accountability to the global maritime grid. By detecting inconsistencies and behavioral irregularities, including the vessel’s age, ship to ship transfers, course deviations, transmission gaps, flag hopping and more, Windward’s Predictive Intelligence solution enables industry players to be proactive, ensuring they only do business with entities that comply with all the latest regulations.
