The Ark Labs in Florence, Alabama is a start-up that is developing technology to combine artificial intelligence with smart devices and the internet of things to monitor and control residential and commercial water usage.

The technology will help to boost water efficiency, reduce insurance claims due to water damage, and reduce demands on local water supply and wastewater treatment facilities.

In episode 5 of Ignite Alabama I talk to Robbie Hillis, the force behind this Florence, Alabama-based startup.

The Ark Labs is one of the startups chosen to participate in this summer's GIG Tank Accelerator program in Chattanooga.

After we cover the problem that The Ark Labs technology will solve, we get into a bigger discussion about entrepreneurship in Alabama, the fear of failure and desire for the illusion of security that seems to hold back so many people who might otherwise start a business (small or large), and the plethora of innovative ideas that are all around us.
