Machine Learning Can Predict the Evolution of an Earthquake Swarm

Will humanity ever be able to predict for sure on time when an earthquake will occur? Will scientists ever be able to announce the population several months or weeks before a major earthquake will shake their cities, so that they can find shelter? Such things may not be possible for the moment, but the good news is that scientists are still looking for ways to make them happen. Researchers reported that circulating groundwater triggered a four-year-long swarm of little earthquakes that occurred at the Southern California town of Cahuilla. Computers…
