AMS Annual Meeting, Part 3: Jobs

Here is an essay from the American Meteorological Society meeting from one young meteorologist concerned whether there will still be jobs for human forecasters or whether computers will do all the work.

My estimation is that there will be a role for human forecasters for at least the next quarter century.

After that, who knows? The advance of both weather science and computer science (“Moore’s Law”) is so rapid, I won’t hazard a guess beyond that period time.
