AI in Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response
Software Engineering Institute
In 2017 and 2018, the world witnessed a record number of climate and weather-related disasters including flooding, wildfires, and hurricanes. Government agencies are increasingly interested in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to help first responders in locating survivors, identifying structures in satellite imagery, and removing debris after a disaster. In this SEI Podcast, Ritwik Gupta, a machine learning research scientist in the SEI’s Emerging Technology Center, discusses the use of AI in humanitarian assistance and disaster response (HADR) efforts.
