AUSTIN, Texas — SparkCognition, a global leader in B2B artificial intelligence (AI) software solutions, today announced that its computer vision solution deployment with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) has been awarded Verdantix’s EHS Innovation Excellence Award.

“With businesses facing increased volatility and the requirement to do more with less, EHS leaders are redefining how they operate and increasingly adopting technology to ensure business resilience,” said David Metcalfe, Verdantix CEO. “The Verdantix EHS Innovation Excellence Awards recognize and demonstrate the instrumental role that EHS leaders and technology play in delivering positive social, environmental, and safety outcomes, as well as contributing to commercial success.”
