Abstract

There is an urgent need to build models to tackle Indoor Air Quality issue. Since the model should be accurate and fast, Reduced Order Modelling technique is used to reduce the dimensionality of the problem. The accuracy of the model, that represent a dynamic system, is improved integrating real data coming from sensors using Data Assimilation techniques. In this paper, we formulate a new methodology called Latent Assimilation that combines Data Assimilation and Machine Learning. We use a Convolutional neural network to reduce the dimensionality of the problem, a Long-Short-Term-Memory to build a surrogate model of the dynamic system and an Optimal Interpolated Kalman Filter to incorporate real data. Experimental results are provided for CO2 concentration within an indoor space. This methodology can be used for example to predict in real-time the load of virus, such as the SARS-COV-2, in the air by linking it to the concentration of CO2.

PlumeNet: Large-Scale Air Quality Forecasting Using A Convolutional LSTM Network
An engine can forecast jointly the concentrations of nitrogen dioxyde (NO2), ozone (O3) and particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10) The forecasts are performed on a regular grid with a neural network whose architecture includes convolutional LSTM blocks.

Data-driven Air Quality Characterisation for Urban Environments: a Case Study
The economic and social impact of poor air quality in towns and cities is increasingly being recognised. Local authority maintained monitoring stations are geographically sparse and the resultant datasets also feature missing labels. We propose a machine learning-based method to accurately predict the Air Quality Index (AQI)

VayuAnukulani: Adaptive Memory Networks for Air Pollution Forecasting
Air pollution is the leading environmental health hazard globally due to factory emissions, car exhaust and cooking stoves. As a precautionary measure, air pollution forecast serves as the basis for taking effective pollution control measures. We present VayuAnukulani's novel end-to-end solution.

Role of Deep LSTM Neural Networks And WiFi Networks in Support of Occupancy Prediction in Smart Buildings
Knowing how many people occupy a building, and where they are located, is a key component of smart building services. However, relatively simple sensor technology and control algorithms limit the effectiveness of such services. We propose to replace sensor technology with time series models that can predict the number of occupants at a given location and time.

SOCAIRE: Forecasting and Monitoring Urban Air Quality in Madrid
SOCAIRE is an operational tool based on a Bayesian and spatiotemporal ensemble of neural and statistical nested models. It focuses on modeling each and every available component which might play a role in air quality. This tool is currently in operation in Madrid, producing daily air quality predictions.
