Sao Paulo is a big city, spanning more than 930 miles and housing some 12 million citizens. Because of this, it is not easy to determine the temperature, humidity, dew point, and rain volume from one side of the city to the other in real-time. But what if this information could be in your hands and on your smart phone at any time using a chatbot?
City Engineer Dalton Oliveira is working on such a system. This would allow residents to know what attire to choose before heading out, or plan a different route due to weather related traffic delays. For business, it would provide interesting advertisement possibilities or let customers know when the location was socked in with poor weather. Lastly for government or university researchers, it would be possible to gather historical information for research around weather and climate. The possibilities are infinite.
