A recent press release reports, “BreezoMeter, the leading global air quality analytics provider, today announces the addition of air quality forecasting and pollen dispersion data, based on its proprietary machine learning algorithm, to its API. The company is now able to provide air quality data up to four days in advance, providing consumers, businesses and cities with an early warning to prepare for pollution events or plan a day outdoors in the fresh air. With the addition of pollen dispersion to its air quality data, BreezoMeter is utilizing its cutting-edge dispersion algorithms to provide real-time pollen patterns in sync with its pollution information for the most complete report of air quality available.”

The release goes on, “While making precise predictions about the weather is difficult, accurately forecasting air quality levels is more complicated. Air quality is governed by complex dynamics and factors such as traffic, local emissions and weather, meaning air quality within one region can change several times a day. With four-day forecasting now available through BreezoMeter’s API, companies can easily integrate to provide customers with actionable recommendations. Use case examples include fitness wearables recommending outdoor training when the forecast suggests fresh air, cosmetic companies offering advice, in advance, about which beauty products to wear during high pollution events, and air purifiers automatically starting before pollution levels rise.”

Emil Fisher, Chief Technology Officer at BreezoMeter, commented, “In terms of annual deaths, air pollution has surpassed malaria, car accidents and HIV, combined. It’s a massive and global issue affecting everyone, and up until now, consumers did not have access to real-time accurate air quality data… Our goal is to democratize air quality data to put this pollution information into the hands of the consumer. Now, with our predictive forecasting technology, you can check air quality for the upcoming days as easily as you would check the weather.”
