🌩️ Exciting News from the Intersection of AI and Weather Forecasting 🌩️

I'm thrilled to announce our groundbreaking development in lightning occurrence prediction, now featured on the
Nature Communications Editors’ Highlights webpage under "AI and Machine Learning."
Dive into our research freely accessible at https://lnkd.in/eYhkFU99, where we bridge traditional algorithms and AI to significantly enhance forecasting accuracy.
This work, spotlighted for its innovative approach, is proudly funded by the Compagnia di San Paolo through the project AIxtreme. Explore the highlight at https://lnkd.in/eUasQCAF

Stay tuned for more updates on how we're pushing the boundaries of weather forecasting with AI! 🌐💡

Andrea Mazzino's Research Evaluation (VQR 2015-2019): A, A, A, A

Monitoring COVID-19 Infection - Daily Update

Data sources: Dipartimento della Protezione Civile (Italian data) and www.worldometers.info (international data)

Nota per lettori non esperti:
In tutti grafici riportati sopra, l’asse delle ordinate è in scala logaritmica mentre le ascisse sono in scala lineare. In questo modo le leggi esponenziali diventano semplici linee rette. Più esse sono ripide e più significa che l’infezione si propaga velocemente. Tecnicamente, ciò significa che il tempo di raddoppio dei casi sotto esame si riduce.

A note for non-expert readers:
In all graphs above, the ordinate axis is on logarithmic scale while the abscissas are on linear scale. In this way, exponential laws become simple straight lines. The steeper they are, the faster the infection. Technically speaking, this means that the doubling time of the cases under examination reduces.
