"Machine learning is nipping at the heels of conventional physical modeling of air quality predictions." "You can do a lot of physics to understand how ozone is found in different places, but what we did is we just collected a lot of data and trained these machines on it and they were able to predict [local ozone levels] without any knowledge of how ozone works in the atmosphere."

"While computer engineer Tapiwa M. Chiwewe says that he and his South African colleagues were able to re-use some of the air quality forecasting tool developed by their colleagues in China, they must also adapt it to local particularities. Johannesburg, for example, has a long mining history. The mining industry has left many exposed tailings piles and strong winds regularly pick up the finer particles, reducing air quality in neighborhoods downwind. [...] Johannesburg also lacks Beijing's dense network of air quality monitoring stations."

A guest post by Dr Alexandra Jahn, from the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research at the University of Colorado, explores how accurate scientists can be in their predictions of when the Arctic will see its first sea ice-free summer. #Arctic   #IceFree  
Around this time each year, many people turn their attention to the Arctic in anticipation of the annual minimum for sea ice cover.

While around half of the trash in the United States is still sent to be buried in landfills, Energy from Waste ( #EfW) facilities in recent years have found new ways to meet pollution controls, recycle metals, and reduce waste volume — but not without financial and potential health costs to the cities where they’re located. #Landfills are also no friend to the environment due to various pollutants, such as methane emissions, which are caused by buried organic material rotting. Methane is a greenhouse gas 86 times more potent than carbon dioxide on a 20 year time frame, so this is particularly important for climate change. But now more than ever before, cities have a responsibility to solve the underlying issue: reducing the waste before it ever gets tossed in a bin. #USA   #Waste

Something else that we should do, but that our current slate of politicians will not do.

Two new software algorithms that automatically quantify the amount of coronary artery calcium and detect the presence of fatty liver in CT scans have been developed. "The first algorithm quantifies the amount of calcification or plaque in coronary arteries, which can predict the risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack or stroke. The second identifies fatty liver in a patient's CT scans, offering information about the patient's metabolic state. If fatty liver is caught early enough, steps can be taken to prevent its progressing to cirrhosis, chronic liver disease or liver cancer."

"While the algorithms are useful on their own, they are particularly effective when used together, Zebra Medical said in a statement. Research shows that fatty liver is associated with a two to four times elevated risk of high-risk coronary artery plaque that can lead to a heart attack."
Machine learning player Zebra Medical has come up with two new algorithms that can help predict patients’ risk of cardiovascular events. Applying them to routine CT scans could help physicians identify high-risk patients early enough to ward off cardiovascular disease and fatty liver, which are both underdiagnosed.
