Aquavo

Project Info

Project Description


Aquavo is a crowdfunding charitable organization to purchase/reserve water for more water-efficient usage and environmental water.
Through algorithmic trading, we will optimize the amount of water preserved and redistribute water to encourage water efficiency.
Contributors will subscribe while being incentivized by tax reduction, carbon offset credits, and educational impact. Furthermore, this helps with the social image of the contributors and can raise awareness regarding water resources.


Data Story


AquaAlgo water trading system purchases water allocation credits using data science to optimize the contribution to efficient use and environmental water flows. This Machine Learning system analyzes data such as the river flow, rainfall amount, water trading prices, weather forecast, and Natural Language Processing analysis of River Murray flow reports.

Challenges

Showcasing our regions

How might we promote South Australian regions to boost regional development?

Go to Challenge | 16 teams have entered this challenge across all checkpoints that have passed.

Helping a social impact ‘start up’ (small organisation) to tell their story

Small and informal community/interest groups who have formed to solve local problems need data to know if their activities are making a difference and to re-design programs. How can we help these groups tell their story through data so they can seek support (political, financial, and on the ground) by showing how their programs are working, and decide where to focus next?

Waterwise

How can we protect and preserve our water resources?

Innovative ways to be efficient with water

Innovative ideas about water efficiency. Climate change means that we will have more unpredictable weather. Some of Australia is in drought and some areas have plenty of water. That changes each year. Water efficiency was a focus around the millennium drought. We want new, innovative and untapped ideas on ways to be efficient with water use. These ideas could include how we use water, how we can save water, how we waste water, how everyone can make a difference in using water wisely, water rules and ideas on saving water for the future.
