SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt -- The head of California-based AI weather forecasting startup Atmo has his sights set on the Asia-Pacific region, where everything from typhoons and flooding to heat waves and drought regularly disrupt the lives of millions of people.

In a recent interview on the sidelines of the COP27 climate summit in Egypt, Atmo CEO Alexander Levy described the Asia-Pacific as an "incredibly strategic area," due to its massive population, vulnerability to extreme weather and "extremely urgent" need to improve forecasting.
