IBM Joins Efforts to Improve Beijing Air Conditions

Beijing has taken great strides in working to reduce smog and increase reform in the capital and throughout China. In addition to the government’s efforts, IBM announced recently it will partner with Beijing to map the air patterns with computer modeling. Using supercomputers to predict and study the air quality not only in real-time, but also three days in advance, IBM and Beijing hope to determine preventive measures for the city’s air quality. The efforts will also be able to pinpoint pollution sources, which can then be remediated. IBM is also designing systems to manage China’s electrical grid, and suggesting wind turbines and solar power to limit the amount of power being wasted.
