RFHPC89: KatRisk Using Titan to Compute Global Flood Maps

  • by

In this episode, 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.
