Development of Artificial Intelligent Techniques for Atmospheric Applications

Project Details


Atmospheric processes have played important roles in our economy and society. In 2017, Taiwan had suffered and experienced a crisis of drought over Shihmen reservoir during March 2017; an unexpected and wide-spread power cut at 16:51 on 15 August 2017, in the middle of a very hot summer; the heavy flooding over Tainan and Pingdon areas on 29 July 2017 after the passing of typhoons Nesat and Haitang; and heavy rainfalls over Northern Taiwan on 6 June 2017. The amount of observational data has significantly increased; the science and technology for artificial intelligence to turn data into answers have grown in the past few years. These two trends have enabled the development of new tools to solve mentioned problems. In this project, we intend to develop new tools of artificial intelligence for air pollution prediction, heavy rainfall prediction, drought predictions, and public health prediction.
