Anticipating Earthquakes

Major earthquakes can cause great destruction, injuries and death.  Anticipating these events has been extremely challenging.  Recently we have pioneered a new approach involving nowcasting, a term borrowed from economics and finance, together with machine learning.  These new methods allow us to rigorously compute earthquake probabilities directly from observed data, over short time scales of 1 to 3 years in the future, compared to the current 30 -year time scales.

John Rundle will be speaking in the following theatres:
