The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has launched a competition to improve, through Artificial Intelligence and/or Machine Learning techniques, the current precipitation and temperature forecasts for 3 to 6 weeks into the future from the best computational fluid dynamic models available today. This challenge is part of the Subseasonal-to-Seasonal Prediction Project (S2S Project), coordinated by the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP) and the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), in collaboration with the Swiss Data Science Center (SDSC) and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). The top three teams will receive cash prizes of up to 15K. The competition is now accepting submissions and two town hall meetings on 2 June and 10 June 2021 will present the competition rules and technical aspects. For more information on the town halls please email Nico Caltabiano: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
