(ECNS) -- The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) has invented the world's first artificial intelligence earthquake monitoring system after six years of research.
It can report all seismic source parameters within two seconds.
The fruit of USTC professors and a team led by Zhao Cuiping at the Earthquake Prediction Institute of China Seismological Administration, the system underwent testing at earthquake test sites in Sichuan and Yunnan provinces for a year.
The AI earthquake monitoring system can operate in real-time to timely process massive seismic network big data, greatly alleviating labor pressure while reducing false and missed alarms.
Research and development teams are seeking cooperation oppurtunities with international earthquake monitoring agencies in Japan, Turkey, Mexico and other countries where earthquakes occur frequently.
