IWA Podcast with Prof. Zoran Kapelan: AI in the Water Sector

In this second episode of the IWA Digital Water Podcast Series, AI and the solutions to water sector challenges are discussed by the IWA Digital Water Programme Steering Committee Member, Professor Zoran Kapelan, and IWA Strategic Programme Manager, Katharine Cross.

The IWA Digital Water Programme white paper  ‘Artificial Intelligence Solutions for the Water Sector‘ is the basis for the discussion. The publication focuses on tangible solutions (rather than technologies) that were developed to address specific challenges in real-life water systems. Using applied examples, the topic of AI and its applications in the water industry are made clear.  The examples are selected to demonstrate that AI-based solutions can address real challenges and provide tangible benefits to the water sector.
