Google has improved and expanded a programme that uses artificial intelligence to forecast floods in South Asia in partnership with Bangladesh and India.

The tech titan provided an update on how it has been expanding and improving these efforts, as well as a new partnership it has formed with the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in a blog post on Tuesday.

In recent months, Google has been expanding its forecasting models and services in partnership with the Indian Central Water Commission.

In June, just in time for the monsoon season, Google reached an important milestone: its systems now extend to the whole of India, with Google technology being used to improve the targeting of every alert the government sends.
