The Flint water crisis revealed that our water quality can be unsafe if we only rely on the governments. Only when the global citizens have the right and access to keep track of their own water in their community and give real-time feedback. All of the data should be securely stored and cross verified by the blockchain ecosystem.
What it does
Water Guardians are striving to enable global citizens to the access of clean water. Our work is a bottom-up software and policy solution with blockchain, computer vision, and text analytics.
How we built it
We have been using several Microsoft Azure API and other computational resources, such as the AWS credits. The techniques of machine learning and blockchain have been used as well.
Challenges we ran into
It was challenging to integrate different tools into our App Web sometimes.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our work allows the residents, scientists, and governments protect water together and cross validate each other’s water data.
What we learned
How to use to power of AI to benefit the world.
What's next for Water Guardians
We will call for the global citizens' help to develop our blockchain ecosystem for better water quality.
