Webinar - Harnessing AI for optimization and sustainability in the water and wastewater industry

  • Webinar - Harnessing AI for optimization and sustainability in the water and wastewater industry




Artificial Intelligence (AI) holds tremendous potential for water utilities to achieve their sustainability goals. Already, some AI-based technologies are being employed to optimize various processes within water treatment plants. A notable leader in this field is Siemens, actively utilizing AI across design, engineering, operations, and maintenance aspects. For instance, AI plays a crucial role in detecting asset wear or failures, such as in pumps and pipelines, and in pinpointing leaks within water networks.

Predictive modeling through AI also contributes to expediting the net zero transition by optimizing network efficiency and minimizing the environmental impact of water infrastructure.

In this webinar, Smart Water Magazine and Siemens will explore how AI can help plant operators successfully implement AI in their operations. Join us to explore the cutting-edge innovations and insights that this technology brings to the water utilities sector. Together, we can pave the way towards a sustainable future for water management.
