Artificial Intelligence (AI) enables utilities to speed up analysis of sewer pipe inspection videos, while ensuring accuracy. This allows their workforce to focus on making timely maintenance decisions instead of conducting routine inspections. Other benefits include reduced costs, lower rates of error, and fewer disruptions in service. To help lower the hurdle of deploying AI, utilities can work ...with solution providers experienced in the challenges that affect this sector. DC Water enlisted the help of Wipro, an IT services provider and member of the Intel® AI Builders program with expertise in the utility industry as well as computer vision, machine learning and related technologies.
