The capability of AI to generate data-driven insight makes it key incorporation in the modern water management systems.
FREMONT, CA: Due to widespread urbanization and population explosion, the demand for water is steadily increasing. Based on a report, the demand for freshwater has increased more than twice the rate of population growth. It’s high time to take all the effective measures to avoid the impending ubiquitous water crisis. Technologies are transforming the various segments of our society. The issues concerning water can also be addressed with the help of artificial intelligence.
As the water flows through the pipelines, there is a massive potential of collecting and processing data alongside. Several modern water utility facilities are incorporatingAI-based analytical systems that are complemented by IoT sensors. Such a combination of technologies can continuously track, estimate, and respond to water demand most sustainably and effectively. Smart water management systems place AI at the core of managing water. The system’s AI capability enables it to analyze everything that’s happening in the system while the machine learning (ML) elements allow it to constantly improve its understanding of the most appropriate responses during varying situations.
AI is becoming an essential weapon in the fight against water wastage. According to a report, the US alone loses 7 billion gallons of drinking water each day. Such a level of waste can be reduced with the deployment of AI that can analyze water flows in real-time and send alerts to the concerned authorities in case of a leakage or damage to the pipelines carrying water. Such a system eliminates water wastage while also saves significantly on operational costs.
Utility firms realize the capacity of AI to address water-related challenges. The above trend can be accounted from the fact that modern water management systems are all being laced with AI capability.
