Beijing, which has suffered from severe smog problems over recent years, will be the first stop for the project, which hopes to enhance the health of the Chinese people and achieve sustainable development.

Green Horizon will make good use of IBM's cognitive computing, big-data analysis and the Internet of Things (IoT) technology to analyze real-time data streaming from air monitoring stations and meteorological satellites.

It will also provide air-quality forecasts for 72 hours in advance, based on self-learning capabilities and its supercomputing ability to achieve real-time monitoring of the sources and locations of pollutants in Beijing.
