Research Forum 2018
Leveraging Big Data and Artificial Intelligence in Weather Observations and Forecasting
(18 October 2018)

The Hong Kong Observatory organized the Research Forum "Leveraging Big Data and Artificial Intelligence in Weather Observations and Forecasting" on 18 October 2018. Experts from local universities were invited to share their knowledge and research findings on application of big data and artificial intelligence (AI) in various fields including landslide monitoring, seasonal forecasting and stormwater management. The Observatory gave presentations on urban weather monitoring for smart cities and application of deep learning in rainfall nowcasting. Participants from public utility companies and government works departments also exchanged views on development and application of AI with the speakers.
