New possibilities for predicting & responding to disasters are emerging because of advances in technologies like artificial intelligence, edge connectivity, supercomputing, satellite communications, & mobile devices. This Hello Wednesday virtual public event features presentations & discussion from the members of a unique collaboration between Orange Silicon Valley, NVIDIA, Balcony Labs, & Orange Business Services to test & model a solution with wide ranging applications that builds on the power of these innovations.

Supercomputing is an important contribution to enabling & reinforcing risk prevention. The combination of AI supercomputing at the edge of the network & targeted two-way messaging with mobile phones at the site of a disaster is transformative. Earth observation satellites are the most effective instruments for the collection of geospatial intelligence data at a global scale, allowing for time-critical data gathering for actionable insights. A solution integrating these advances is applicable in many contexts - both reactive situations such as wars & terrorist attacks, & proactive initiatives such as informational support & training campaigns which require the coordination of multiple teams & tools.

Join us to learn how these innovations are a game-changer in preventing loss of life, property, & infrastructure.

For a full description of the project, read our article Rapid disaster detection & response: A climate action collaboration.

We hope you can join us for this exciting & informative event.
