Computer scientists at Loughborough University in the U.K. have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that can predict air pollution levels hours in advance.
The technology has the potential to provide information on the environmental factors that have significant impacts on air pollution levels.
The project is focused on predicting particulate matter less than 2.5 microns (10-6 m) in diameter, also known as PM2.5, a type of pollution often associated with reduced visibility in cities.
The AI system predicts PM2.5 levels in just a few hours, one to two days in advance. In addition, it interprets the various factors and data used for prediction, which could lead to a better understanding of variables that can impact PM2.5 levels.
