摘要： In a potentially historic marriage of supercomputing and big data, IBM goes live Thursday with a global weather model that it says can provide far more accurate forecasts for the entire world.
IBM is launching a new weather model offering high resolution forecasts globally with detail as small as 2 miles wide.
The system is called GRAF, or Global High Resolution Atmospheric Forecasting, and will have many applications globally for governments and industries including airlines, agriculture and retail.
GRAF will issue 12 trillion pieces of weather data every day and process forecasts every hour.
IBM became a leading player in meteorology when it purchased the Weather Company a few years ago, retaining the data gathering and forecasting units while splitting off the Weather Channel.
