Founded by the winners of the 2016 Aquahacking Challenge in Montreal, CANN Forecast ’s mission is to help prevent water-related crises by leveraging municipalities’ existing data . Nicolas St. Gelais, Co-founder and Scientific Director, has always had an interest in understanding water issues and exploring how technology can help us better manage it.
“Back in 2005, and even more importantly today, communities were asking to get back access to the rivers and water bodies neighbouring Montreal. Not knowing whether water bodies were safe or healthy for recreational activities created a challenge. During the 5-month hackathon, our team created a machine learning model that accurately predicts water quality in real time,” says Nicolas.
