DCbrain offers artificial intelligence solutions to managers of complex systems; they support them in the understanding, monitoring and management their network. A lot of systems are shifting from hierarchal to distributed networks; artificial intelligence and deep learning help to manage these complex flows. DCbrain offers a solution, which is suited for a wide range of industries and companies, since its technology can be applied to any network of flows. Their software as a service is tailored to the specific needs of each organization and is easy to use for any operating department; no data scientist needed.
How it started.
Two technical engineers founded DCbrain 4 years ago. One had a background in optimizing existing flows and the other had a programming background. They realized that by combining these two fields of expertise a lot of value can be created. In 2015 DCbrain was fully launched by participating in the ‘Smart Grid’ contest of ENEDIS. ‘’We presented them a digital twin of their network that we created with our technology. Their first reaction was: ‘where did you get that? It is classified’ But we just created it with the data that was available’’.
By building a digital twin of physical networks and flows, DCbrain brings value to the data in the following ways. Their technology can simulate the flows and impacts of specific evolutions in the network. For example, DCbrain has simulated the effects of adding new sources of biogas to the grid for a utility grid provider. On top of that, they can conduct complex what-if analyses, which can be used for risk management. For example, what happens with the supply chain when a supplier is not able to deliver?
Lastly, DC Brain can optimize the process yields to optimize results on industrial assets. They already proved themselves successful in petrol-chemical companies.
The organization has its headquarter located in Paris at Station F, world’s biggest start-up campus. Here they are part of the AI factory, a program funded by Mircrosoft. Currently they are opening an Office in Brussels to target the Benelux area. The main reason for this is to target the many organizations here that are active in logistics, chemical industry and utility providers.
DCbrain and Clean Tech Delta.
The existing network of Clean Tech Delta responsible for linking clean tech initiatives to large organizations in the Randstad area was for DCbrain the reason to join CTD. Trough this partnership they seek to become integrated in the innovation ecosystem of Rotterdam. This way they would like to get in contact with potential customers who they can assist in managing their grid. Lastly the background and vision of Fred van Beuningen regarding venture capital and technology scale-up was a reason for DCbrain to join Clean Tech Delta.
