InteliSwim is based on an AI algorithm to reliably estimate the concentration of E. coli in the river. Every year, Canada pours more than 150 billion liters of untreated sewage water into nature and potentially endangering the health of citizens.
The traditional water quality measurement method requires a technician to take a sample (from the shore for example) and then bring it back to the lab for analysis. Then estimating water quality require an incubation time of ± 24 hours. By using these methods, beaches are closed too late – the day after a peak of contamination – putting swimmers at risk.
