Japanese scientists have developed an artificial intelligence model that can predict the impact of tsunami floods using the world’s fastest supercomputer. The tool also works on normal computers
Japanese scientists created a new algorithm based on artificial intelligence (AI). According to a press release published by Fujitsu, the vehicle in question has the ability to predict the impact of the tsunami.
Scientists conducted the research on the world’s fastest supercomputer Fugaku, jointly developed by RIKEN and Fujitsu. The computing power of the device was used to run high resolution tsunami simulations.
Thanks to Fugaku, the research team from Fujitsu, Tohoku University and the Earthquake Research Institute of Tokyo University were able to create 20,000 possible tsunami scenarios to be used to train the artificial intelligence model.
Predicts in spatial resolution
A deep learning algorithm was used to analyze the tsunami waveform data observed in the open sea during the earthquake. The result is an artificial intelligence that can predict tsunami floods in near real time at high spatial resolution.
More importantly, this artificial intelligence tool can be used in normal computers. In this way, disaster response teams will have the opportunity to foresee the devastating impact of tsunami floods on buildings, roads and other surrounding infrastructures.
