AI in weather forecasting, prediction and communication
Whether tempestuous winds threaten the shores of Phú Yên or a cool breeze is due to sweep through the central highlands of Tây Nguyên, Vietnamese citizens and tourists need to know the local forecast so they can adjust their plans accordingly.
In Vietnam, weather patterns can vary dramatically from region to region, which makes weather forecasting extremely challenging for Vietnam Television (VTV), Vietnam’s state broadcaster.
Viewers across the nation tune in to VTV to receive daily and weekly weather forecasts. Businesses also rely on the station to inform their decisions, and farmers use the reports to guide crop and livestock management.
Although the public heavily relies on VTV, the station must continue to differentiate itself from the competition with broadcasts that are as accurate, easy to understand, and engaging as possible.
With this goal in mind, VTV wanted a process for developing and customizing 3D graphics quicker and easier to help the station provide the latest, most accurate information.
