Artificial Intelligence Buoys or AIBs, are simulated stations which use data science techniques to provide observations at a location where sensors do not exist. AIBs are typically generated at popular locations to help in decision making for on the water activities.
This derived data station utilizes patented Nearcast AI technology. Nearcast algorithms apply machine learned behavior to our proprietary weather station observations – putting actionable weather information at your fingertips, where and when you need it.
The accuracy of AIB data is influenced by available weather and observation data in the surrounding area. AIBs continue to improve over time as more observations and feedback are collected. Installation of more weather station sensors close to an AIB’s location will also improve that AIB’s accuracy.
