AI Weather Forecast Startup Sets Sights On Asia-Pacific Region

Atmo, an AI weather forecast system, has set its sights on the Asia-Pacific region to help improve the lives of citizens, said CEO Alexander Levy in an interview during the COP27 climate summit in Egypt last November.

Levy said during the interview that the Asia-Pacific region is “a vulnerable place” due to the massive population and vulnerability to extreme weather conditions.
