    Now, Artificial intelligence will soon oversee the maintenance of Seoul city’s sewage system.
    The Seoul Digital Foundation says it recently developed new AI tech that automatically detects any defects.
    Previously, hours of footage had to be viewed manually to check for flaws in the 9-thousand kilometers of underground pipes.
    The new system screens those videos and pick out any irregularities.
    Several districts in Seoul are currently running it on a trial basis.
    However, the plan is to integrate the system citywide by next year.
