Could software save lives after a natural disaster? Meteorologists use sophisticated software-reliant systems to predict a number of pathways for severe and extreme weather events, such as hurricanes, tornados, and cyclones. Their forecasts can trigger evacuations that remove people from danger. In this blog post, I explore key technology enablers that might pave the path toward achieving an envisioned end-state capability for software that would improve decision-making and response for disaster managers and warfighters in...
