Seeker: AI Earthquake Tracker Is Inspired by Speech Recognition Technology. “The state of Oklahoma has witnessed a stunning rise in the frequency of earthquakes, which has been linked to an increase in the use of fracking technology in the oil and gas sector. Starting in 2009, the annual number of quakes measuring above magnitude 3.0 in the state exploded from fewer than three to as many as 903 in 2015. Now, all this seismic activity has prompted scientists to develop a new tool for tracking it — drawing on speech recognition technology.”
