About VODA.ai: VODA.ai helps water utilities prioritize their infrastructure using machine learning. It is proven to be up to 65 times more accurate than traditional methods and twice as accurate in finding lead pipes. VODA.ai was founded in 2017 and is used by many of the Leading Utilities of the World. It is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. VODA.ai's patent-pending machine learning and deep learning technology discover patterns from other pipes and enables science-based decision making. 


George Demosthenous worked in the water industry for years, and often heard his utility friends complain by the amount of pipe failures they had to deal with. They shared their frustration over bad press and felt that planning was time-consuming and complicated.












While George was working on a master’s degree at Harvard, he took an innovation course from Jim Fitchett. Jim had previously run a company that used advanced technology to predict the health of people. They found patterns that led to health events and then applied those patterns to groups of people, predicting the likelihood of diabetic complications, cardiac episodes, and other avoidable events.

Over coffee one day, George told Jim about the problem of poor health of water pipes. A lightbulb went off in Jim’s head. If the health of people could be predicted, why not water pipe health as well? Soon after, they founded VODA.ai to help water professionals plan more effectively, easier, and faster – way faster.
