Teams comprised of Lockheed Martin and NVIDIA as well as Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center have launched efforts to use AI to help improve disaster response.
NVIDIA said Monday the teams detailed their projects during the company's GTC DC conference in Washington, D.C. which saw over 3.5K attendees from the public and private sectors.
Lockheed and NVIDIA formed a partnership to develop an open dataset that will contain real-world as well as simulation data to assist machine learning development activities in support of earthquake response operations.
APL also partnered with the Department of Defense's JAIC component to develop a way of monitoring storm damage through deep learning and satellite imaging data.
Sean Griffin, president of Washington, D.C.-based data analytics firm Disaster Intelligence, announced that his firm is developing a web-based platform that collates disaster-related data to help streamline the delivery of critical information to authorities and responders.
NVIDIA will host a webinar on Dec. 17 to discuss its software stack driven by graphics processing units that work to assist responders in replanning their routes.
