Research: Smart water infrastructure and analytics.

The City of Abbotsford, BC fitted all of the approximately 24,000 homes and businesses with smart water meters that record usage at the hourly level. Given this unique data resource, there are many interesting research problems to work on—including leak or loss detection, predicting or forecasting usage, customer modeling to improve hydrographic modeling, scheduling of infrastructure maintenance, and infrastructure planning—and many of these appear to be amenable to artificial intelligence tools and techniques.
