Artificial Intelligence can accurately predict distribution of radioactive fallout 4.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
Scientists have created an artificial intelligence (AI) based computer programme that can accurately predict where emitted radioactive material will eventually land, over 30 hours in advance. "Our new tool was first trained using years of weather-related data to predict where radioactivity would be distributed if it were released from a particular point," said Takao Yoshikane from The University of Tokyo in Japan. "In subsequent testing, it could predict the direction of dispersion with at least 85 per cent accuracy, with this rising to 95 per cent in winter when there are more predictable weather patterns," said Yoshikane. When a nuclear power plant accident occurs and radioactive material is released, it is vital to evacuate people in the vicinity as quickly as possible, according to the research published in the journal Scientific Reports. However, it can be difficult to immediately predict where the emitted radioactivity will settle, making it impossible to prevent the exposure of large numbers of ...

The Supreme Court today directed the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) to set up a facility for safe storage of radio-active spent nuclear fuel at Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) by April 2022. It rejected the plea of the petitioner to close down Kudankulum nuclear plant out of safety concerns.  The apex court, which had earlier granted time till May 30 this year for the purpose, extended the time for the NPCIL to set up the 'Away From Reactor Facility' (AFR) to store the spent nuclear fuel. A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud considered the submission of Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the corporation, that the deadline for setting up of the storage facility be extended till April 30, 2022. The bench, however, made it clear that no further extension of time shall be granted to the corporation for setting up of the AFR at the nuclear plant in Tamil Nadu. The apex court had earlier allowed the Centre to ...

An elderly man and a young girl were killed, with several other people also in "cardiopulmonary arrest", after walls collapsed in a magnitude-6.1 earthquake that hit Osaka in western Japan on Monday, public broadcaster NHK said. Japan does not confirm deaths until a formal examination has been made and generally uses the term cardiopulmonary arrest in such cases. NHK said an 80-year-old man and a 9-year-old girl had been killed by collapsing walls. Live footage showed burst water mains and a house on fire after the quake hit Japan's second-biggest metropolis just before 8 a.m. (2300 GMT Sunday) as commuters were heading to work. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the government was assessing damage and that its top priority was the safety of residents. The epicentre of the earthquake was in the northern part of the prefecture, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. The agency originally put the quake's magnitude at 5.9 but later raised it to 6.1.
