Clean Water AI

Project description

According to World Health Organization, over 2.1 billion people in the world lack safe drinking water at home, more than twice as many lack safe sanitation. And even in first world countries like Untied States, they still have water contamination problems such as Flint, Michigan. We want to help those communities to monitor their water before consumption through artificial intelligence.


Traditional water quality testing usually goes through chemical reaction, which is always one time use. To continuously monitor the water quality it becomes rather difficult. It also adds the cost where developing countries can not afford because the chemical based strips are one time use.


Clean Water AI can be used to continuously detecting the water quality in real time, and can be used offline in areas where internet may not be accessible. In addition, we are able to sense cholera, e-coli, and other harmful bacterias through single device rather than different test kits. Since we are using optical and AI based solution, we can easily train more dangerous bacterias and harmful particles as needed. Making it a lot more easier and cost effective to help communities around the world.


Water is essential for human life. We want to use AI to securing water quality and safety to everyone in the world, and we believe with enough help, we can change the world with his device.
