Big Data Brings Analytics and Insights to the Water Flow Resources Analytics Insight

#artificialintelligence

Data is everywhere, even the water sector has collected reams of data for decades. It has been only within the last few years that agencies, utilities, consultants and vendors woken up to unlock the hidden potential of data resources to manage maintenance and predict water flow. The move to leverage digital information in the water sector has been drastic with systems, to pair it with historic datasets and additional sensor data for creating customized digital dashboards and applications for water agencies. Historical information from data coming from water resources can be layered on real-time information for the workforce to take operational decisions on analytics which older workers over the years have relied on their gut to make. Water providers have been using Microsoft Power BI, to analyse patterns from data sources pulled together including water usage, customer complaints, planned capital expenditures, copper and lead test results and infrastructure age over an interactive site offered by Microsoft Power BI.


Life Below Sea Level in the New Age of Climate-Change Engineering

MIT Technology Review

Piet Dircke is standing on the sidewalk at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport pointing up to the building's second floor. Or, as he puts it, sea level. The tarmac, where planes taxi nearby, should be about four meters under water, he explains. Rising seas caused by climate change have made that work harder. But for Dircke, the head of water management at Dutch engineering consultancy Arcadis, there is a financial benefit: a global boom in business.

Internet of Things: Transforming Energy & Utilities Sector #IoT #Energy #Utilities

#artificialintelligence

Internet of Things (IoT), is a mammoth network of things connected with one another as well as individuals. This relationship could be between people to people, people to things and things to things. Basically, IoT is the concept to connect any device with an on and off switch with Internet or with each other. It is also applicable to any machine component e.g. There is a chance that everything is a part of IoT if it has an on and off switch.


Digital Transformation in Utilities sector

@machinelearnbot

It is easy to take for granted the technology we have at our disposal. We flick a switch and the lights go on, we turn on the tap and clean water comes out. We don't have to worry about gas for cooking. But today the Utilities industry is under pressure to simultaneously reduce costs and improve operational performance. Utilities sector is a bit late in digital innovations than Retail, Banking or Insurance.
