Using AI and data science, an MIT team was able to accurately predict rogue waves coming out of the blue in the middle of the ocean, in near real time, to help sailors change their navigation path and avoid destruction and death. Rogue waves, while rare, are unpredictable, tall (up to 100 feet) and devastating. The physical mechanism producing these waves is well understood, and is typically modeled using rotating elements.
You can download source code that simulates rogue waves to help you design your own rogue wave simulator and predictor. The source code and simulator described in this article is designed by Data Science Central's data scientist, independently from the MIT research team.
