IBM Broadens Push in China, India to Predict Pollution Patterns

  • Indian capital to study link between traffic patterns and smog
  • Cognitive computing applied to policy responses to dirty air

International Business Machines Corp., which has been developing artificial intelligence to help fight Beijing’s toxic air pollution, plans to work with other municipalities in China and India on similar projects to manage air quality.

IBM Research, a division of the company, will help an advisory body known as the Delhi Dialogue Commission to understand the link between traffic patterns and smog in the Indian capital so that decisions related to improving air quality can be backed with modeling, the Armonk, New York-based company said on Wednesday.
