IBM’s Watson fed images to estimate water use efficiency in California

Don DeBoldFew environmental limits are as obvious to people today as water availability. Particularly in drier climates, availability can be a pretty unforgiving equation. Even there, a family might pay less for water than for cell phones, but there is often a pretty complex system behind your tap that keeps it running. The challenge of water availability rises beyond engineering. It becomes a delicate dance managing demand, forecasting supply, and sustaining ecosystems. Decisions have to be made based on information that is never complete, so any opportunity to obtain more useful information is liable to get a thirsty look from water managers. Of course, a truck load of information won’t do you any good if you can’t extract the bits you need. One tool for working with potentially valuable truck loads is…
