  • Publication number: 20210133575
    Abstract: A water treatment plant which performs water treatment using a water treatment device includes an imaging device, a processing device, and a control device. The imaging device images a water treatment environment of the water treatment device and outputs image data obtained by imaging. The processing device causes an arithmetic device which performs an arithmetic operation using one or more calculation models generated by machine learning to execute the arithmetic operation employing the image data output from the imaging device as input data of the one or more calculation models. The control device controls the water treatment device on the basis of output information output from the arithmetic device by executing the arithmetic operation.
