      Description

      Predicting Earthquakes with Apache SystemML.

      Earthquakes take a dreadful human toll. Some 10,000 people die each year in earthquakes and their aftermath, but the toll can be much higher. Over 230,000 people died in the tsunami that followed the magnitude 9 quake off the coast of Sumatra in 2004; more than 200,000 died in Haiti in 2010 after the country was hit by a magnitude 7 quake; and more than 800,000 are thought to have died in a quake in China in 1556.1

      So a better way—any way—to forecast quakes would be hugely valuable.

      With the recent advancements in research in the fields and after some successful predictions, we strongly believe that it is possible to predict an earthquake.
