How close are we to automated avalanche forecasting? Lessons from testing machine learning methods in Norway and Canada

Co-author(s): Karsten Müller, Pascal Haegeli, Rune Engeset

Artificial intelligence methods are increasingly applied in many areas in our daily lives and have fundamentally changed how decisions or services that require analyses of complex data are provided. Could this be the holy grail for avalanche forecasting as well? In this poster, researchers from Simon Fraser University and the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate share lessons from their explorations in machine learning and discuss their plans for future research and development.


This presentation will be live:

Monday October 5 (14:00 – 15:30 MDT), Tuesday October 6 (06:15 – 07:45 MDT)
Join our Zoom meeting for a discussion about forecasting with machine learning. Authors of this poster will be present throughout both sessions.
