China has successfully tested a technology that is nowhere in the world.
An earthquake prediction system has been developed in China that uses artificial intelligence to test earthquake activity.
China is one of the countries in the world where earthquakes are most likely.
The new system was developed by the China University of Science and Technology and the China Earth Quake Administration, which can analyze seismic data and predict possible earthquakes.
According to a report by the South China Morning Post, the system is currently being tested in two Chinese provinces of Yunnan and Sichuan.
These are the mountainous provinces where the highest number of earthquakes are recorded in China, and in Sichuan in 2008, an earthquake of magnitude 8 killed nearly 90,000 people.
This new system will likely be helpful in reducing the number of earthquake deaths in the future as it helps authorities to perform rescue operations more quickly and efficiently, closing nuclear power plants and reducing the speed of trains.
It is clear that forecasting an earthquake is a complex task, and scientists are not capable of predicting a major earthquake at this time but can estimate its probability in a few years.
Generally, it is dependent on human forecasters to make such estimates or forecasts that take into account other factors, including the evolution of the earth and its diameter in an area.
With this new system, human accounting will be replaced by a fully automated system.
According to a report published in the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology, the system has so far been used to predict 446 earthquakes with the help of manual computing methods.
It will now be tested for a year and if it is successful, it will be installed across China and used outside China.
The research team is already in talks with disaster monitoring organizations in countries affected by the earthquake, including Japan, Mexico and Turkey.
