On 24 February, Amphos 21, an RSK group company, presented its novel AquaLearning project at the annual Water Innovation Day in Barcelona, winning third place. Organised by the Catalan Water Partnership, this year’s Water Innovation Day focused on “digital and circular solutions” and technological innovations to support the sustainable use of water in Catalonia, Spain.
AquaLearning is an artificial intelligence (AI) tool developed by in-house specialists at Amphos 21 that enables users to visualise the health of rivers and groundwater systems in a given region. Utilising machine learning and AI, the team has created an early warning platform for pollution and water quality management that facilitates the optimisation of supply services and sustainable water resources management. The technology offers a digital solution to the challenges of surface and groundwater management across Spain, which relies heavily on aquifers to supply it with water for drinking, irrigation and industry.
To confront the challenges of aquifer dependence, the AquaLearning tool uses historic and real-time data to map and analyse hydrological systems, offering local and regional assessments of the health of the water bodies. Developed as a highly adaptable technology, the platform monitors quality and uses machine learning to predict pollution risk ahead of time, enabling contamination to be mitigated before it poses harm to the consumer. This monitoring ability ensures the safety of resources, effective mitigation of potential pollutant risk and a rapid response time.
The third place success at the Water Innovation Day 2022 follows a first place at the Smart Catalonia Challenge in January 2021.
Congratulations to the AquaLearning team at Amphos 21.
