We enhance machine intelligence with human knowledge.

Minerva Intelligence Inc. is a knowledge engineering company based in Vancouver, Canada, with a subsidiary office in Darmstadt, Germany. Our proprietary evidence-based decision-making software is bringing the benefits of artificial intelligence technology to industries dependent on reasoning with complex technical and scientific data. 

Our proprietary cognitive AI combines machine intelligence with human intelligence to reason with information that humans find overwhelming, while providing the explanations needed to trust the results.

Minerva’s applications currently focus on earth science-related domains including natural hazards and mineral exploration; however, our technology has application in diverse industries and domains.

Orogen Royalties

Dave Groves

“Orogen has successfully utilized LEO to organize and search large numbers of scanned exploration documents in its proprietary property-file collections. With LEO, we are able to quickly search through hundreds of documents using keyword searches and obtain a listing of relevant documents along with contextual reference and a listing of other key geological words in the document. The resulting information is particularly useful in identifying geological features to support early exploration target concepts in targeted terranes.”

“By using Minerva’s cognitive AI to identify the geochemical relationships between various structures, we can essentially get an unbiased second opinion to augment our own exploration effort and at a price that’s about the cost of a single RAB hole.”

Nathaniel Tougas

“By using Minerva’s cognitive AI to identify relationships between various geomorphological parameters, we can essentially get an unbiased second opinion to augment our own geohazard assessment. The GAIA Landslide Map provides geological engineers with AI tools and insights that have never been available in our field, and this is truly exciting to me.”

Nathaniel Tougas, P. Eng.

Lionel Jackson

“Minerva’s synergy of AI with the fruits of Earth science research is not limited to mineral exploration… its AI is powerfully applying geotechnical knowledge to natural hazards avoidance and risk management faster than is possible with humans alone. The results are transparent to stake-holders.”
