Helsinki-Tallinn Tunnel Project measured with Headai-powered SDG Scorecard

Finest Bay Area Development starts a real-time measuring of the Helsinki-Tallinn tunnel progress against the UN Sustainable Development Goals

FEABY states in their recent press release, that being able to measure the project progress with AI-powered SDG Scorecard is enormously valuable. Organizations and companies have set the UN SDGs as their goals, but the challenge has been the metrics and reporting – how to do it in an objective, transparent, and timely way. Headai technology allows FEBAY to do transparent and real-time monitoring of the project performance in relation to the UN SDGs.

The Finest Bay Area tunnel project has set the target to follow and meet the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. We want to lead the way and we are extremely excited about this AI technology and what it allows us to do. Setting goals and objectives is one thing, but actually knowing the performance against the goals is crucially important to be able to improve and be transparent in all project operations, says Peter Vesterbacka of FEBAY.

Semantic networks link together information from chosen sources such as Open Data, archives, files, registries, and many more. The information is refined in form of self-organizing entities. By using multiple sources of information, we enable wider contextual understanding of the knowledge domain.”, explains Harri Ketamo of Headai and continues, “In order to use Big Data in complex decision making, we have to apply AI and Natural Language Processing. Most NLP is done with methods that make applications narrow, dependent on training sets, and so disable secure and transparent decision making. Headai goes beyond those limits by bringing together the strengths of self-organized learning, reinforcement learning, and cognitive sciences.

Finest Bay Area Development Is a development company working on creating gravity and economic growth to the Finest Bay Area region. The company is designing and preparing to start construction of the world’s longest undersea tunnel connecting Finland and Estonia where there will be four station areas including some floating and artificial islands. The purpose of the project is to construct an undersea railway tunnel between Finland and Estonia, in order to significantly reduce travel time between the countries. In the Project vision is that the railway tunnel would merge the Helsinki and Tallinn metropolitan regions into a single metropolis. The region may develop into a hub connecting Asia and Europe, as the tunnel project opens the opportunity to take the train from Helsinki-Vantaa Airport directly to Tallinn.

The company is currently conducting environmental impact assessments (Finest Bay Area Development Oy, Environmental impact assessment programme ( ) and detailed design of the tunnel.
