IBM launches Deep Thunder to use machine learning and big data for local weather forecasts

IBM’s weather forecast and data arm has launched Deep Thunder, a machine learning-powered service designed to provide customised local forecasts. The Weather Company, which IBM recently acquired after a long partnership, uses global weather forecast models and sophisticated analytics to provide forecast and climate data to companies and organisations across the globe. Adding The Weather Company’s datasets and forecasting capabilities has given IBM the scope to mix in its own analytics and machine learning technology to create Deep Thunder. The software can provide weather analysis for targeted areas at a 0.2 to 1.2 mile resolution. The application of machine learning-based weather impact models developed by IBM Research allows Deep Learning to assess the effect of weather on a certain area, taking into account historical forecasts and environmental data such as…
