Pre-Forum Site Tours: Drones & AI Technologies In Disaster Risk Management

Site Tour A: Using Unmanned Drones For Delivering Critical Medical Supplies And Searching For Victims

Drones can land in places that ground vehicles either cannot get to or take too long to reach. It can deliver life-saving treatment directly to the victims and at the same time give remote physicians eyes, ears and voice to instruct anyone on site.


Site Tour B: Exploring Artificial Intelligence And Predictive Mapping In Disaster Risk Management

AI has had tremendous impact in managing disasters and planning out relief operations. It could be utilized to potentially predicting earthquakes to quickening recovery and response times, flood occurrences and even patterns in climate. Humanitarian groups are now also using AI to speed up map creation by using machine learning in computer software to extract objects such as buildings and roads from aerial images.
