What does AI mean for weather forecasting?

The WeatherPod team, Hosts Alan Thorpe and David Rogers and colleagues, have been developing  a new in depth focus on Artifical Intelligence and weather forecasting.

Three new episodes to view & hear …

The first two form part of a programme of Special AI episodes investigating the potential impact of AI on weather forecasting and the future role of physics.
  • The first features an interview with Kirstine Dale, the UK Met Office’s Chief AI Officer (CAIO). As CAIO Kirstine is charged with embedding AI in the Met Office’s core business – initially focusing on the use of AI in weather forecasting through leadership of the ‘AI for Numerical Weather Prediction’ (AI4NWP) programme.

  • The second AI Special features Amy McGovern, Director of the National Science Foundation AI Institute for Research on Trustworthy AI in Weather, Climate, and Coastal Oceanography, AI2ES. A key part of Amy’s research involves weather analytics and physical data science and she and her students are developing physics-based trustworthy AI methods as well as explainable AI.

  • Aside from AI, in the third new episode of The WeatherPod, Alan and David meet David Richardson, until recently Head of Evaluation at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts. David also has has over 35 years’ experience at the UK Met Office and also played a key role in establishing the THORPEX Interactive Grand Global Ensemble or TIGGE project on global ensemble forecasting.
    His work on ensemble prediction includes the configuration of ensembles to represent the uncertainties in the initial conditions and modelling systems, development of products and tools for forecast users, and evaluation of forecast performance.
