Hydroinformatics: Solutions for global water challenges
“Global water security is a multi-dimensional and enduring human goal. These multiple dimensions reflect human desire to manage risks related to water, including droughts, floods, landslides, desertification, pollution, epidemics and diseases, as well as disputes and conflicts.
Over the last 30 years, we have been whitenesses to modern digital technologies transforming our society (e.g. banking, transportation, tourism, entertainment). However, while digital
banking (e.g. payment apps), transport apps (e.g. Uber), tourism platforms (e.g. AirBnB), and video and music streaming services (e.g. Netflix, Spotify) have disrupted traditional sectors, improving planning and management of those global water-related risks through digital transformation has been slow. With 90% of the data in the world today that has been created in the last two years alone, the quantity of information available is unprecedented in human history. We can measure, sense and monitor the condition of almost anything. The question is then, what is the situation with the digital transformation of the water sector?”
