Datathon – Sofia Air 2.0 – Solution – (Virtual) forests to reduce PM10 pollution in Sofia

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Datathons Solutions, Prediction systems

Sofia is a city with significant concentrations of particulate matter less than 10 micrometers in diameter (PM10.) A high concentration of PM10 is disruptive to life and the climate. The purpose of this project is to predict the concentration of PM10 at a particular day given the climatic conditions. This is important in allowing the making of policies to reduce the pollution in the city. Our contribution consists of a random forest regressor that acheives the purpose with 70 to 80% accuracy.
