In s blog post and accompanying paper, researchers at Google detail an AI system — MetNet — that can predict precipitation up to eight hours into the future. They say that it outperforms the current state-of-the-art physics model in use by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and that it makes a prediction over the entire U.S. in seconds as opposed to an hour.
Google says that its MetNet machine learning algorithm can outperform NOAA's precipitation forecasting model for timescales up to 8 hours ahead.
