Over a decade ago, as part of its academic programming, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee began to provide impact-based decision support services for a variety of public and private clients, with a central focus on its educational mission and student success. The model so-developed differs in significant ways from that of traditional public and private weather forecast services, and has required innovative approaches to overcome the special challenges that arise from this special relationship. In this talk, I will describe the development of this service, its status today, the university’s role in educating tomorrow’s workforce, and the future implications of data science, machine learning, and advanced automation in the weather forecast enterprise.
