Teo tells us about his work in artificial intelligence, his travels around the world, and how inspiration sometimes strikes in the pub.

Clouds make the weather, yet their detail isn't taken into account in weather forecasts. Artificial intelligence might be able to help.

Predicting the weather is hard. With more data and computing power becoming available, artificial intelligence can help.

How does your phone know what the weather's going to be like?

How a little insect can cause chaos.

I noticed a few people were confused about the choice of height for the triangle, so here is my explanation :)

m is the amount of crops that you can grow in 1 square unit of area.

c = mx*x is the amount of crops you can grow in a square field of length x.

So, c = m*Area of Square

For triangle, c = m* Area of Triangle = m (base*height)/2

Base = ax*x + b*x

Choose height = 2x/m so that:

c = m (ax*x + b)*(2x/m)/2

the m on the numerator is divided by m on the denominator to give 1, and 2/2 also gives 1

So, height = 2x/m means that the m "cancels out" and so does the 2 to give the desired quadratic formula:

c = ax*x + b*x

Hope this helps.
