InteliSwim is based on an Artificial Intelligence algorithm to reliably estimate microbial contamination (i.e. Escherichia coli and Enterococci) in beach water. Every year, billions of liters of untreated sewage water are poured into watersheds potentially endangering the health of citizens.
The traditional water quality measurement method requires a technician to take a sample and then bring it back to the lab for analysis. Then estimating water quality requires 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.
