Microsoft AI for Earth
About the Project
In October 2020, Carnegie was awarded a Microsoft AI for Earth grant to support further development of the ML Wave Predictor, with objective to simplify the hardware it relies on, without compromising on its accuracy. This will in turn broaden its potential applications and make it more readily useable by communities around the globe. Over the next year, the team will access Microsoft Azure’s state of the art virtual machines, storage, and sevices (such as Azure Machine Learning), to deliver the Machine Learning Wave Predictor 2.0.
