Ongoing projects with industry, government and academia

This is a list of industrial partners and governmental organisations we currently work together on projects involving High Performance Computing (HPC) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

 hyperion group logo          


Hyperion has more than 25 years of experience bringing ongoing value to global, regional and local operating companies in the Process Industries. They are leading providers of consulting and engineering advisory services, specialized technology and implementation of advanced process systems solutions in the hydrocarbons, chemicals and power generation industries.

How do we collaborate?

Computational scientists at CaSToRC are creating AI algorithms with Hyperion that use vast amounts of production plant measurement data to develop models to predict critical quality parameters of the processed material based on real-time conditions. The models will be embedded in Hyperion’s solutions and serve as virtual instrumentation that will infer measurements that can be used to help isolate low quality material more efficiently and dramatically reduce the waste and thus the costs for the company.  You can also read the Press Release.
