🗞️ Driving the news: As extreme weather events grow in frequency and intensity, artificial intelligence and cloud computing have become crucial instruments in our endeavor to anticipate and ready ourselves for these occurrences
• Huawei Cloud's recent development of the Pangu Weather AI model is a significant milestone in this endeavor, providing highly accurate and efficient global weather forecasts

🔭 The context: Traditional weather prediction models, based on physical equations and observations, are limited in their accuracy and scalability
• They often fail to capture the complex behavior of our atmosphere

🌎 Why does it matter for the planet: AI, combined with cloud computing, can improve the forecasting and understanding of weather events
• This would help countries better prepare and maybe avoid tragedies tied to erratic weather behavior

⏭️ What's next: The advancements in AI technology need to be nurtured and integrated into broad ecosystems, developed through public-private partnerships to further research, regulation, and talent development in the field

💬 One quote: "The path to realizing carbon neutrality must be technology intensive. AI technology must be implemented in various industries through ICT infrastructure combined with carbon reduction technologies to create breakthrough technologies and result" (IDC and Baidu whitepaper)

📈 One stat: IDC and Baidu published a paper stating that the technology can contribute up to 70% of carbon emissions reductions by 2060, equivalent to reducing more than 35 billion tons of carbon emissions from now until 2060.
