Synergy effect Through Human and Artificial Intelligence
Towards New Era in Seismology

MEXT project for Seismology towards Research Innovation with Data of Earthquake (STAR-E)

SCROLL

The world has entered the age of artificial intelligence. Information analysis technologies based on machine learning techniques, in particular deep learning, have seen rapid growth in various scientific fields and are also finding many applications in day-to-day life. For example, the adoption of artificial intelligence in seismology has significantly increased in recent years, where cutting edge deep learning architectures can now surpass even the most experienced seismologists in problems such as seismic wave detection. While such advancement is undoubtedly useful, the reasoning of machine learning models can be difficult to interpret. However, artificial intelligence has yet to surpass the human intelligence of seismologists in terms of uncovering/understanding the activities and underlying mechanisms of earthquakes, which is essential from the perspective of disaster prevention and mitigation. By integrating human expertise that has been cultivated over the long history of seismology and state-of-the-art artificial intelligence, our project “SYNTHA-Seis” explores a new horizon to accelerate earthquake research and contributes to the prevention and mitigation of future earthquake disasters.
   SYNTHA-Seis is supported by the MEXT project for Seismology towards Research Innovation with Data of Earthquake (STAR-E).
