How can environmental scientists and engineers use the increasing amount of available data to enhance our understanding of planet Earth, its systems and processes? This book describes various potential approaches based on artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, including neural networks, decision trees, genetic algorithms and fuzzy logic. Part I contains a series of tutorials describing the methods and the important considerations in applying them. In Part II, many practical examples illustrate the power of these techniques on actual environmental problems. International experts bring to life ways to apply AI to problems in the environmental sciences. While one culture entwines ideas with a thread, another links them with a red line. Thus, a a€œred threada€œ ties the book together, weaving a tapestry that pictures the a€˜naturala€™ data-driven AI methods in the light of the more traditional modeling techniques, and demonstrating the power of these data-based methods.In a regression problem, the map or the function of interest is the one that literally maps the inputs to the targets in some optimal sense. ... And if Y is categorical, then, for example, p(Y = 1|X = 10) could be the probability of a tornado occurring, if wind speeds happen to be 10 knots. Let us now ... We have already dealt with linear regression in Sections 2.3 and 2.4.3 of this chapter, but there is more to know.
