We are looking for new verticals where our year-ahead predictive sales and weather analytics can help in business or humanitarian sectors. Our technology predicts year-ahead weekly temperatures, rainfall and snowfall by week out one year for every 1 mile on Earth. It also predicts any 3rd party metric, namely seasonal merchandise (beverages, apparel, auto parts, lawn and garden, allergy, equity performance, ag applications, etc.) where we can get 3-5+ years of weekly by location sales data.
We have a new partnership with Amazon Data Exchange and would like to foster this partnership with more innovative products, they have mentioned sports teams, sports apparel, etc.
We could explore new verticals like the airline industry in predicting flight delays a year ahead by week by airport, deicing costs, fuel costs circling in bad weather to predict these metrics a year ahead.
Disease or hospital applications on predicting emergency room visits due to bad weather – rain, snow, heat, cold all create a big influx in surprise emergency room visits. This could be predictable on some level. Predicting disease outbreaks for things like Malaria where mosquito infestations occur a couple weeks after heavy rain. etc.
