AI developed by DeepMind and the Met Office in the UK can predict rain more accurately than current forecasting models over the very short term.

UK-based DeepMind – an AI subsidiary of Google parent company Alphabet – has previously achieved high-profile success with neural networks trained to play the game Go and to investigate protein folding. It has now applied its deep-learning approach to short-term rain “nowcasts”. These usually focus on the next 2 hours of weather and …
