AI systems may blow weathermen away

AI systems may blow weathermen away: "Weather forecasters could find themselves pushed out of a job by an artificial intelligence system designed to write clearer, less ambiguous reports.

Computer scientists at the University of Aberdeen, UK, were asked to generate an "artificial weatherperson" by operators of offshore oil rigs, who wanted more clarity in their forecasts. The vocabulary used by different forecasters can be vague and highly variable, says Ehud Reiter, who led the Aberdeen team."

I'm all for it. You get better more accurate forecasts by going to weather.com and waste less time on irrelevant weather data. Out with the weathermen... in with the weathergirls!!! :)
