ASCE IL Section EWRI Technical Workshop Series – Session #2
February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Topic: “Smart City, Smart Water, Smart Infrastructure?”
Time: 12:00 – 1:30pm
Cost: Free Event
Smart grid, Big Data, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), infrastructure resilience, and sustainability – we hear these words and phrases often. But what do they mean for the water resources field? Practitioners across many fields have opined on a diversity of meanings, along with associated directions that we should follow, while others are perhaps more skeptical. Do we actually know how to bring these often multi-objective projects to fruition?
This lunch-time workshop series will encompass a full range of presenters with experience in these initiatives, including municipalities, community leaders, consultants, and government organizations. These presenters will speak about a range of issues connected to the “smart” or “digital water” topic, including key drivers and incentives, project analyses and justifications, available field technology, data management platforms and digital twins, project management strategies, outreach, and more.
