The better planning with the aid of artificial intelligence (AI) and other technologies can give relief workers a better chance of finding and helping victims in natural disasters such as a cyclone.
One of the primary strengths of AI is the way it increases our capacity to predict and therefore plan for events and circumstances. Considering that one of the most important ways to save lives in disasters is to have early warning, there’s a lot of good things the AI can do.
The satellite imagery helps to find out what has been damaged, and where, is already vital to coordinating an effective and swift emergency response.
Also, organizations are using AI techniques to interpret social media feeds following disasters. This type of analysis could provide information about infrastructure damage and aid required to victims such as shelters where people are without blankets or waiting outside of homes
