Artificial intelligence can help detect earthquakes
Today’s Video of the Day comes from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and features a look at how artificial intelligence can help scientists detect and understand earthquakes.
While traditional methods can detect major earthquakes, they fail to pick up on smaller ones, such as those triggered by hydraulic fracturing.
Now, scientists are using artificial intelligence to pinpoint these quieter earthquakes in order to better understand those induced by humans.
