      Are we being short-sighted in our solutions to water management?

      We live in a dynamic environment. Our choices now can aggravate the problems we are trying to solve. A hotter climate will increase evaporation rates creating a dryer climate and increasing water demand. Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, hotter weather increases demand for colling (air conditioning and refrigeration). More carbon output from increased water processing and cooling demand creates a hotter climate. A new path forward is required.

      Helping Customers Manage Water Use With Better Data

      Copper remotely collects near-real-time data from existing water meters to deliver actionable insights to utilities and their customers. We’ll share results from a recent project in Colorado where Copper and Siemens partnered to establish a residential water resource management program. Come hear lessons learned from engaging users with near-real-time data, enabling rapid leak detection, supporting conservation efforts, and measuring the impacts at the meter!

      Treatment Systems for Agricultural Irrigation and Drainage Water

      Agriculture is the largest user of water in California. This sector must find a way to recycle the drainage water leaving the growing areas. There are many challenges to recycling: a) strict discharge regulations, b) drainage water flow is highly variable, c) complex mix of dissolved ions, d) salt accumulation in groundwater and recycle loops. This presentation will talk about our approach to solving these problems by leveraging biological solutions and adapting existing solutions to fit farmers unique needs

      Level 6 Cybersecurity

      Artificial Intelligence-Driven Analytics for Cybersecurity Strategy Development

      The use of AI and data analytics for technical cybersecurity support is common and well documented. But the use of AI in support of optimal cybersecurity strategy development has largely been ignored. This seminar offers novel approaches for applying AI within a very-large-scale data mining environment to calculate industry-specific cybersecurity decision support tools.
