Climate Modeling and AI

At a time when different parts of the earth are facing heat waves, wildfires and floods, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt believes that use of artificial intelligence (AI) could go a long way in predicting extreme weather. Experiments by semiconductor giant Nvidia at creating an AI-powered “digital twin” of the planet could be the first of many steps in this direction.  The concept of digital twins represents a scenario where an actual real-world product, process or system serves as a digital counterpart for simulation, testing, monitoring and integration. Though the concept itself isn’t new, the growing power of generative AI is creating excitement over the future possibilities.
