IBM to clean China’s air with big data analysis

IBM has partnered with Chinese officials in an attempt to control Beijing’s rising pollution problems.

The company is unveiling a 10-year initiative in partnership with the locality’s government to improve the nation’s energy systems and protect its citizen’s health.

Beijing is one of China’s largest municipalities, yet is also affected by some of the worst air quality in the country, with the pollution levels often rising to extremely hazardous levels.

The city is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges which trap the smog, leading government officials to declare a “war on pollution” in the area.

During its battle against poor air quality, the local government has tried closing factories, roads and byways to curb the rise in pollution. These disruptive measures have irritated its citizens and made little difference, it is claimed.

This is where IBM hopes to step in, organising the local government’s policies through the collection and analysis of big data.

The firm hopes to map the problems facing Beijing using computer modelling, as well as predict and study the pollution patterns of the city.

It will install the latest in optical sensors and meteorological satellite data and crunch all the numbers with its jeopardy-loving supercomputer Watson.

It’s “Green Horizon” program will see it use big data analytics to readily forecast the availability of renewable energy sources like wind and solar power.
