NOAA Unveils AI-Powered Weather Forecast Translation Capability

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has introduced an artificial intelligence tool for weather forecast translation.

Ken Graham, director of NOAA’s National Weather Service, said the AI use case will replace the agency’s manual translation capabilities and improve community and individual readiness and resilience. The current AI-based translation capability can translate English weather forecasts from English to Chinese and Spanish.

NOAA plans to include Samoan and Vietnamese as it continues to develop the capability. The agency also noted that other languages may be added in the future, Nextgov/FCW reported.

The agency has been improving its technological capabilities in recent months to ensure that the public receives the best weather forecasts.

In August, NOAA worked with the Department of Commerce to increase the capacity of the Weather and Climate Operational Supercomputing System. According to NOAA, WCOSS improvements make room for U.S. Global Forecast System range and accuracy upgrades, Rapid Refresh Forecast System integration and Global Ensemble Forecast System functionality expansion.
