Learning the significance of data points allows artificial intelligence models to make better predictions, which will help us tell when hurricanes or disease outbreaks are imminent
6 January 2023
We could soon better forecast catastrophic events like disease outbreaks and floods thanks to work that allows artificial intelligence models to make predictions from scant data.
“Forecasting extreme events with AI will no longer need ‘big data’, unlocking countless opportunities to accurately predict disasters where data is limited, from hurricanes to earthquakes to pandemic spikes,” says Ethan Pickering, who leads a team at Bayer Crop Science researching machine learning.
Standard computer prediction models require large data …
