NOAA Partners with Google to Boost Weather Forecasts with AI

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Google linked up to cooperatively steer artificial intelligence and machine learning-driven pilot projects that could advance the agency’s environmental monitoring, weather predicting, and climate research capabilities.
Through a three-year deal unveiled Tuesday, the two will collectively study and develop small-scale AI systems and eventually wider-ranging prototypes that might be infused across NOAA’s broader enterprise. Such resources would be of good use to the water and climate-focused agency, which is responsible for providing raw data for weather forecasts nationwide, including those used to predict hurricanes and other natural disasters.
