Project Loon sounds like something that crazy people will do but of course we know that if this continues to evolve, it might change the way Internet connectivity is brought to areas that don’t have the infrastructure. As they continue to experiment with things like artificial intelligence and machine learning, they also put them to the actual test by putting out the balloons. This summer, Google experimented with the Internet-carrying balloons over Latin America and they were able to stay in Peruvian airspace for 98 days. Google has been conducting test flights for the past months in order to predict wind patterns at various altitudes and then inputting the data to create software algorithms in order to properly steer the balloons into areas where people will be able to access…
