Artificial intelligence could be used to accurately predict tsunamis

Cardiff University

A reliable early warning system to detect tsunamis could be a step closer thanks to research from Cardiff University.

Researchers say their analysis of ocean soundwaves triggered by underwater earthquakes has enabled them to develop artificial intelligence (AI) that allow prediction of when a tsunami might occur. The results are published today in the journal Scientific Reports.

It is hoped this technology could assist experts in gaining accurate real-time assessments of these geological events.

Dr Usama Kadri, from Cardiff University’s School of Mathematics, said: “Tsunamis have a devastating impact on communities. Developing accurate methods to detect them quickly is key to saving lives.
