Artificial intelligence will soon oversee the maintenance of the sewage system in Seoul.
The Seoul Digital Foundation says it recently developed new AI tech that automatically detects malfunctions.
Seoul has some 9-thousand kilometers of pipes underground, and so to diagnose defects, engineers have had to look at hours and hours of video footage.
But the new system screens that footage and finds irregularities on its own.
Several districts in Seoul are currently running the system on a trial basis, and the plan is to take it citywide by next year.
