AI in Water Management: BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues
Dec 28, 2022
35 registered participants from 73 countries – online conference inspires interested parties from research, water management and politics worldwide
The BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues are supported by the Export Initiative for Environmental Protection − GreenTech "Made in Germany" of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV), and the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises (SenWEB).
635 registered participants from 73 countries were eager to learn about Artificial Intelligence: Reshaping the Water Industry. The event series built upon the success of previous years’ events. "Not least thanks to the continuous support of the BMUV and the Berlin Senate, the BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues have developed into an international format with great appeal, a platform that brings German and Berlin projects, companies and initiatives to international visibility and connectivity. The renewed registration of more than 600 participants from all over the world shows this impressively", says Julia Braune, Managing Director of German Water Partnership e.V. and member of the advisory board of the event series. Stefan Tidow, State Secretary of BMUV, who provided the conference’s opening remarks, also emphasized the high global relevance that BLUE PLANET has acquired in recent years.
In 2022, the program was once again full of top-class speakers who looked at the many possible applications of AI in the water sector and the challenges which must be overcome when moving from research to application. Highlights included presentations by Sella Nevo of the Google Flood Forecasting Initiative, Nicolas Zimmer of the Technologiestiftung Berlin, and the joint keynote by Prof. Dr. Andrea Cominola of the Technische Universität Berlin and Dr. Riccardo Taormina of the Delft University of Technology, as well as the contribution of Dr. Newsha Ajami from Berkeley Lab's Earth & Environmental Sciences.
All talks and sessions can be viewed online free of charge on BLUE PLANET’s website: https://blueplanetberlin.de/review-artificial-intelligence/
Conference participants gained insights into innovative application examples, projects and technologies from Germany, Spain, the USA, the Netherlands and the UK. The multimedia online event platform enabled international networking before, during and after the event.
The digital event was offered in English and was free of charge for participants. For more information on the BLUE PLANET Berlin Water Dialogues, please visit www.blueplanetberlin.de and follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter.
