EurekAlert: Artificial intelligence accurately predicts distribution of radioactive fallout

EurekAlert: Artificial intelligence accurately predicts distribution of radioactive fallout . “When a nuclear power plant accident occurs and radioactive material is released, it is vital to evacuate people in the vicinity as quickly as possible. However, it can be difficult to immediately predict where the emitted radioactivity will settle, making it impossible to prevent the exposure of large numbers of people. A means of overcoming this difficulty has been presented in a new study reported in the journal Scientific Reports by a research team at The University of Tokyo Institute of Industrial Science. “
