Use Nano/AI Technologies for Water Purification

Posted by: Taofeeq Ashiru

Campaign: Can we make drinkable water from other sources?

Considering that most of the pollutants are at the micro level, the nanotechnological solutions will be perfect for reaching such level for effective purifications. Combined with AI, such technologies will bring nano purification processes to another level.

I\'m still not clear what AI can contribute? I can think of things such as particle sorting etc. but is this still going to work at scale? sound rather slow and energy intensive...

Thanks for the question, AJ Kennedy. Nanotechnology uses same, similar or new technologies currently in but at the nanometers level. The catch is the ability to address particles or micro-organisms at a very small level. Addition of AI will also increase the efficiencies. For example, you could have membrane filters powered by AI at nano level for the purification of water.

Thanks for the idea Taofeeq. Can you give an example of other nanotechnological solutions?
