As evidence mounts that extreme weather this summer is being driven by climate change, artificial intelligence is helping predict where conditions will shift.
A new AI tool could allow scientists to more accurately forecast Arctic sea ice months into the future. IceNet is almost 95% accurate in predicting whether sea ice will be present two months ahead, researchers say. It’s one of a growing number of uses for AI in predicting climate change.
“AI has significantly improved the efficiency of running complex climate models that historically have been computationally intensive,” Daniel Intolubbe-Chmil, an analyst at Harbor Research,, told Lifewire in an email interview.
