VANCOUVER, Dec. 11, 2017 /CNW/ - Carl Data Solutions Inc.'s (CSE:CRL, FSE:7C5, OTC:CDTAF) Polish subsidiary is taking the next leap forward in developing artificial intelligence (AI) to monitor aging critical infrastructure. This ~300k USD research and development grant through the European Union will fund exploration into new ways that data collection and predictive modelling can improve water infrastructure safety and efficiency.
The research will focus on machine learning based AI that makes continuous predictions on how forecasted storm events will impact water infrastructure, allowing the time needed for workers to protect cities from flooding and other damage. An intelligent sensor that measures flow using a machine learning model will be developed that extracts more precise flow data than any other device currently available on the market. Another focus of the research will be sensor anomaly detection to improve the quality of data collected. AI will be trained to know if a sensor is giving incomplete or incorrect data, improving operational intelligence for the overall system.
Carl Data Solutions Poland will work closely with the Department of Decision Systems and Robotics at Gdańsk University of Technology, coordinating with a research team of PhDs and engineers who have been studying water infrastructure for decades. Piotr Stepinski, Carl Data CTO and an architect in designing the project, commented, "The outcome of this project has potential to allow Carl Data's Polish subsidiary to resell this innovative technology throughout the EU and North America. We are excited to have government and international support for developing these in-demand products and services."
