Weather reports. Does any one know?

Does any one know what they mean when giving the weather report when they say the computer models say. Computers are stupid and only set until some one tells it what to do. In other words is the weather reporter claiming the computer is forecasting  the weather?  And no dumb replies please. It is just me. Smiley

Deep Blue won a chess match against a chess champion. it seems that perhaps you need to read up on what all computers can be programmed/taught to do.

It means that the computer has performed calculations based on statistical/historical data, physics and inputs regarding wind conditions, atmospheric pressure, etc. that can provide an estimation of what sort of weather might occur.

Look at it this way: a person over the age of about 8 in the US can take the historical data they have experienced and predict that at Christmas time it will be winter and it will be colder than most of the year.

That is a basic calculation that can be done by a human or a computer.

When computer models are created, they are created to function the same way except with far greater complexity in terms of the inputs and calculations.  Calculations that can often be done more quickly by a computer.

Yes, computers have become unbeatable, now they can tell a champion what he did wrong.

As far as I know, comptures have yet to play a perfect game. Computer could be beat by other computers or even by random chance.

Even in Spock's time, a self-aware android can be defeated with a logical fallacy.
