Is Water Smart in 2040?
Shirley Ben-Dak, Vice-President of Strategy & Innovation for SWAN, joins the Water Foresight Podcast to offer her reflections on "Is Water Smart in 2040?" Shirley addresses the elastic term "smart water" and provides key insights into whether and in what form water may be "smart" in 2040. Also, we discussed the potential unintended consequences of continuing advances within the realm of smart water. Is there a "collapse" scenario in the future of water where society reaches a point of "digital capture"? Will society become too reliant and "exposed" with too much smart water technology? Finally, what are the ethical implications of the future of smart water? Will the ideas of privacy and informed consent be amplified or muted in the future of smart water? Should we fear a new, future IoT--an internet of toilets? The podcast is asking for a friend.

Water Infrastructure in 2040: Business as Usual or Transformation?
George Hawkins, the Founder & CEO of Moonshot Missions, joins the Water Foresight Podcast to discuss his vision for "Water Infrastructure in 2040: Business as Usual or Transformation?" There is no spoiler alert when it comes to George's well-known intellect, enthusiasm, and optimism--he supports the "transformation scenario" of the future of water infrastructure. So, what does that scenario look like? What are the strategies necessary for today to achieve the future transformation strategy? What are the two sides necessary for this transformation? How does digital technology play a role in this transformation scenario? Is infrastructure transformation limited to physical aspects or does it implicate leadership and culture? The podcast believes nothing in water is business as usual with George.

The Multiple Lenses of Predictive Analytics
Dr. Eric Siegel joins the Water Foresight Podcast to discuss "The Multiple Lenses of Predictive Analytics." What is the difference between "big data," "artificial intelligence," "machine learning," and "predictive analytics"? How will predictive analytics change (and change society) over the next 10 years? Will the application of predictive analytics expand throughout the water sector? Does lift modeling have anything to do with lift stations? What are the ethical implications or risks of predictive analytics? Is there a social justice challenge? Is there a cybersecurity challenge? Are there any current applications of predictive analytics from other sectors likely to make their way into the water sector? Are there emerging Constitutional issues in the future of predictive analytics? What is "deep learning"? Was this invented by Jack Handy? Finally, will predictive analytics keep slow drivers out of the left-hand lane during rush hour? The podcast is cautiously optimistic.
