AI for Weather prediction

The use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the area of weather prediction is nothing new, but with the advent of deep learning and very large models, the number of use cases that can be solved with it are on the rise.

Area of weather prediction seems like a natural habitat for machine learning, because of the abundant data. Weather data like temperature, humidity, and rainfall rates have been collected for a long time (more than 100 years in some places) and it seems like an obvious direction for machine learning.

Short-term precipitation forecasting

Machine Learning and especially Deep Learning can improve and speed up the simulations of linear and non-linear dynamic systems. Their advantages over classical numerical methods are:

  • 5x-50x faster compute time
  • accurate at short timescales
  • reduced hardware requirements

Predicting the weather or simulating fluids are just some of the tasks where our models beat classical methods. Deep learning algorithms often used here are 3D convolutional neural networks and generative adversarial networks (GANs).
