18/4 RESILIENCE session “Verbonden Water” – Disruptive innovations in Watermanagement
On April 18, Google and SIM-CI organize a Resilience expert session ‘Connected Water’.
This afternoon we will focus on the technology to get a continuous and dynamic picture of water data. We bridge water management, “Internet Of Things” and advanced analytics, so you can get an idea of the impact and value of disruptive innovations for you as water board and water company.
This is what to expect
- Keynotes on deployment and impact of technology for the collection and management of reference dates for water management and water supply
- Hands-on demonstration of VR/AR/AI based simulation applications
- Experts from the Association of Water Boards, Google, T-Mobile, Qlouder, & SIM CI
