AI-based meteorological model serves accurate global weather forecasts

Chinese researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-based model with three-dimensional neural networks for accurate and medium-range global weather forecasts, according to a recent research article in the journal Nature.


Recently, AI-based methods have shown some potential in accelerating weather forecasting by orders of magnitude. But the forecast accuracy is still significantly lower than that of NWP methods, according to the article.

A large meteorological model research and development team from Huawei Cloud proposed a three-dimensional neural network adapted to the Earth's coordinate system to process complex and heterogeneous three-dimensional meteorological data.


During super typhoon Mawar this May, the Pangu-Weather performed excellently by predicting the turning path five days in advance.
