California [United States], August 31 (ANI): Using artificial intelligence, researchers at Google and Harvard have developed a system that can predict where earthquake aftershocks may occur.
To train the neural network, the researchers used historical seismological data, 131,000 mainshock-aftershock pairs to accurately predict aftershocks, Engadget reported.
Despite the accuracy compared to Coulomb's forecast method, the AI system is not completely ready. Researchers note that the system counts only one type of aftershock triggering when predicting, rather than accounting for static and dynamic stress changes. (ANI)
