US agency to build AI-powered digital twin of Earth’s atmosphere

“So we’re going to have this two-week rolling time window where you’ll be able to look back in time and see those current observations move around the world.”

The end result will be a system that gives meteorologists a unique view of Earth’s atmosphere. But that is not all. The AI ​​will also be able to recognize patterns in the data and flag anomalies.

The project will take more than a year, but Montgomery hopes to have a prototype to show this fall.

“If you have a current state of the world, then with all these data sources coming in, you’ll be better able to predict what’s going to happen in the future,” he said.

Digital twins already in use

Meanwhile, Matt Ross, Lockheed Martin Space’s senior program manager, said in a statement that the work is not entirely new to the company.

“At Lockheed Martin, we regularly use digital twins and AI to provide our government customers with the clearest current situational picture and actionable intelligence for their important mission. We are pleased to be able to use our technology expertise to collaborate with Nvidia on this project to provide NOAA a timely global display for their own important missions,” he explained.
