Neural Networks & Earthquakes

By Helen Hill for MGHPCC

The potential for loss of property and life, has made earthquake forecasting and prediction an active area of research for statisticians and earth scientists. While it is not currently possible to make deterministic predictions of when and where earthquakes will happen, new techniques like those recently reported by the Meade Group in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard using computers housed at the MGHPCC, bring closer the day when the behavior of a seismically active region can me modeled quickly enough to be able to provide meaningful lifesaving guidance to at risk populations.
