A weather forecasting as predicting of something is a complex computer task that has difficulties to follow the description of mathematical models. However, the forecasting of weather conditions that are narrowed to a particular location, region, city or a square kilometer, as the prediction of risks for the population and infrastructure is an entirely different type of task. In order to solve it, the IBM has created a system of hyperlocal forecasting that is the Deep Thunder.
IBM Research scientists have successfully demonstrated the ability to store one bit of information in as few as 12 magnetic atoms. Today’s disk drives use about one million atoms to store a single bit of information. The ability to manipulate matter by its most basic components — atom by atom — could lead to the vital understanding necessary to build smaller, faster and more energy-efficient devices.
