Hello ATS. We're all familiar with the popular app known as Shazaam which tells you which song is playing, right? Shazaam uses an algorithm to identify patterns in music to recognize songs. Stanford researchers have used that idea to build a Shazaam for earthquakes, originally intended to locate microquakes but now can use this information to predict larger quakes. They call this tech F.A.S.T. for Fingerprint And Similarity Thresholding




Stanford researchers thought the same idea could be applied to earthquakes, so they developed Fingerprint And Similarity Thresholding, or FAST. It searches through large databases of seismic activity looking for patterns that indicate an earthquake has taken place — including small events that don't register as earthquakes with conventional equipment.

These microquakes might not wake anyone up at night, but they could help scientists predict how often large quakes might occur and where they might strike.


Pretty cool, huh? Who would have ever thought Shazaam might save your life while telling you who the artist is that sings that song you don't remember anymore? I think this is neat. What says ATS?

I says I been living in this here Silicon Valley my whole life and I been hearing about earthquake predictatator methodology for most of that.

Not one got it right. Except that one guy. He predicted quakes based on how many road kill animals and lost pets there were. They laughed at him because he wunt tientific.

Whenever I ear about another xyz marvel prediction meter, us earthquake denizens go, uhuh (chuckle).

Hmm.m.m.m..m. Well based on the science behind how this works, do you think this will be legit?

I've heard that California has systems that can predict quakes 30 seconds before the quake actually happens.

But cant find any info on such apparatus

I know there is a network of sensors buried along fault lines. Pre quake tremors are picked up all the time. It doesn't mean theres going to be a big one.

Contra-warily, theres lots of data somewhere on pre eruption earthquakes below volcanos. After the vulcan Gods off, they go yep, see?

But still hard to determine exactly when. Lots of little quakes precede nothing at all, warnings are heeded up to a point, but what you gonna do, sleep outside all night, just in case?

After a while all the maybe the big one talk is sort of ignored. Earthquakes aren't like storm warnings or tornado earnings, they just… from zero to earthquake in a moment.

Imagine if tornados worked like that? You'd have to ignore it until your house collapses around you.

Thankfully on the west coast those events are rare. You got this much time to realize its happening.

If the Government knew the big one was coming ... they would not tell you until it was way too late!

If you lose a city and its inhabitants, it is really no great loss.

If you lose a city but the inhabitants live, you now have multiple millions of people. That is a huge task ... one that FEMA cannot hope to control.

Better the people get killed .... one day of morning ... a few speeches ... job done!

No one wants 10 to 20 million people wandering around the desert.

God had enough problems with a few tens of thousands. Your Government is not God, there is no way they would cope.

I didn't even know about the app, so doubly cool to me! If they could use the data and predct bigger quakes, that seems very handy. So, seismic stations with an app for that?

Interesting, tho the Nazi bell essentially was an earthquake machine imo. so prediction of when the machine will be turned on, is imo impossible

mandelaeffect, I think maybe you’re referring to devices that can detect p-waves. P-waves are the fastest moving, front-end waves set off when an earthquake occurs. They arrive before the actual shockwave hits and the shaking starts. Depending on how far you are from the epicenter, the p-wave can alert you 20 or more seconds ahead of the jolt. The seismic stations pickup the p-wave first. I think there are even commercially available devices that you can put in your house/apt that will set off an alarm when a p-wave is detected.

You can read more about p-waves HERE.
