Industrial artificial intelligence and software as a service enterprise provider Detect Technologies on Tuesday said it has signed a global agreement with energy company Shell to deploy its integrated AI Solution 'T-Pulse' across operations of the Shell.
This makes Detect -- the first technology start up which was part of the Shell E4 programme to sign a global framework agreement with Shell.
Shell Ventures has signed an investment agreement to further the company's growth, a company statement said here.
''We appreciate Shell's continued confidence in Detect. To have the world's top energy companies sign a global agreement investing in Detect is a strong show of faith in our trajectory,'' Detect Technologies, CEO and Co-Founder Daniel Raj David said.
''This is a testament to our mission of driving change through AI and advanced technologies to create a safer and more efficient industrial world,'' he said.
T-Pulse is a ready-to-use and commercially centralised technology. Built for enhanced safety and reliability of people, equipment and processes, T-Pulse has already been deployed across construction, petrochemical, ports, power, metals and mining, pharmaceuticals among others.
''From the early days of piloting Detect's T-Pulse technology Shell has been impressed with the product and the ingenuity of the team behind it,'' Shell Vice President of Computational Science and Digital Innovations, Dan Jeavons said.
''T-Pulse has proven to generate actionable insights that have made our operations measurably safer. It is encouraging to see the impact of T-Pulse at Shell growing to help achieve goal zero'', he added.
