(TECH) IBM’s IT Knowledge Being Used To Conserve Water

"Algorithms developed at Haifa research center can detect burst pipes and even predict breaks.

IBM has recently embarked on a number of pilot projects both here and abroad using smart analytics to conserve water in municipal systems, The Jerusalem Post has been told.

Scientists at IBM Research- Haifa have developed complex algorithms that can help minimize water loss from burst pipes, streamline maintenance and reduce general water loss and even predict breaks, Pnina Vortman, senior manager, research scientist, and Smarter Planet Solutions leader told the Post on Monday."
