Radio Free HPC Looks at Supercomputing Global Flood Maps

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


bubbleIn this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at how the KatRisk startup is using GPUs on the Titan supercomputer to calculate global flood maps.

KatRisk is a catastrophe modeling company focused on flood and wind risk. KatRisk develops event-based probabilistic models to quantify portfolio aggregate losses and exceeding probability curves. Their goal is to develop models that fully correlate all sources of flood loss including explicit consideration of tropical cyclone rainfall and storm surge.

  1. Great podcast, thanks for featuring us. You can look at the maps at our website You made very well informed comments about pricing, risk adverse behaviour, climate change and predictive modeling. Information symmetry between insurance companies and homeowners is also an interesting subject.
    Good work. Dag
