Episode 14: Machine learning and artificial intelligence in weather and climate research
/

In this episode of The WeatherPod, hosts David Rogers & Alan Thorpe meet Yuhan (Douglas) Rao, a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies in the US, and Chen Chen, a Senior Research Scientist at the Centre for Climate Research Singapore.

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence methods are gaining popularity in weather & climate research and, in some cases, enhancing forecasting skills. Looking ahead, they may even replace traditional methods of forecasting.

In this episode of the WeatherPod we’ll be discussing some current research problems that are benefitting from the use of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence with two early career scientists – Yuhan (Douglas) Rao, a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies in the US, and Chen Chen, a Senior Research Scientist at the Centre for Climate Research Singapore.

Both Doug and Chen are members of the Young Earth System Scientist community which has helped to facilitate this episode and provide a glimpse of the innovative research in our field being carried out by the next generation of scientists.
