Machine learning used to predict earthquakes in a lab setting

23 Oct 2017, Univ of Cambridge

Researchers have used machine learning techniques to successfully predict earthquakes by identifying a hidden signal leading up to an earthquake. The results can also be applied to landslides and avalanches, and shows great potential to be applied as an early warning system that predicts an earthquake long in advance.
