Northumbrian Water Innovation Festival 2019

Registration for this year’s NWG Innovation Festival 2019 is now open!

Now in our third year, we have a fantastic range of events tackling a broad range of challenges with attendees from many different sectors.

I would like to highlight to you in particular the Data Hackathon events we are hosting in collaboration with our sponsors Aiimi and Microsoft:

Tuesday 9th – Thursday 11th July, Newcastle Racecourse

Every Second Counts– this Hack will raise the bar for customers who experience a water supply interruption. We need your help to use data effectively in order to manage interruption events, provide the best possible service to customers during an outage and minimise the disruption it can cause.

CloudbustingWe’ve got a great cloud, but can we make it rain? Tapping into the capabilities of AI and advanced analytics in the Azure cloud we want to explore how to generate more value out from our existing data.  We will see how can we use the cloud capabilities to gather in more contextual data from media such as video, images and sound.  We will then use these insights to help tackle big challenges like climate change and employee safety.More details via this link, andclick here to register!

Absolute ClarityWe monitor the quality of our water throughout each stage of production process, right from source to tap, to make sure our customers receive the very best. Real-time monitoring generates a huge volume of data and we are confident that with your help there is insight to be found to help us improve things even more. Could you work out what the ‘perfect blend’ is for our customers? This hack will combine water science with data analytics to ensure every last glassful is perfect!

I hope you’ll be able to join us, as usual we’ll be laying on a whole range of fun and inspirational activities to go with the serious matter of solving some of the industry’s biggest challenges!
