Reducing the impact of environmental disasters: AI-based assistant for fronline emergency management

Descrizione del progetto

Tecnologia salvavita per i servizi di emergenza

In caso di catastrofe naturale o di altri incidenti imprevisti, i servizi di emergenza richiedono informazioni essenziali per prendere le decisioni migliori al fine di salvare vite e proprietà. Se da un lato stanno investendo nella tecnologia che può agevolare le loro missioni, spesso si trovano a gestire un sovraccarico di informazioni. Per aiutare gli operatori del settore, il progetto IRIS, finanziato dall’UE, offre una soluzione innovativa per il processo decisionale: un sistema di ragionamento intelligente e all’avanguardia, simile a quello umano, progettato per aiutare le forze di pronto intervento a raccogliere informazioni critiche sul posto e ad adottare decisioni più rapide. La soluzione è stata co-progettata e testata da 10 servizi di emergenza in Europa.

Obiettivo

Imagine a first responder answering the call to a wildfire or to a massive flooding, where there may lives and properties at stake. The information they need to fulfill the mission is crucial. Also, the number of teams and emergency services deployed in these situations is very large. Commanders in the field need to have a precise understanding of what is happening, and they have to coordinate perfectly with all the teams available

In addition, Emergency Services are heavily investing in technology to improve their operations (drones, cameras, sensors, wearables…), leading to information overload in the field.

UNBLUR believes Artificial Intelligence is one viable option that can potentially prevent massive loss of lives and properties while at the same time make emergency response easy and efficient. Our innovation IRIS is a state-of-the-art human-like reasoning system designed to assist first responders in synthesizing high-level data while at the scene of an emergency. IRIS learns, analyzes, reasons, predicts, collaborates, and provides data fusion to provide direction for first responders on the scene. It provides situational awareness during an incident, connecting first responders across different agencies with vital information right at their fingertips.

IRIS purpose is to aid responders in taking all of the pertinent data related to an incident and making quicker decisions. In turn, this not only helps first responders save lives but also keeps them better protected.

IRIS is the first IT web tool designed with and for Incident Commanders in the field. The technology is being co-designed and tested by 10 Emergency Services in Europe and is starting to generate interest among heavyweights in the industry, such as Airbus.

A quicker allocation of teams to a wildfire thanks to IRIS would reduce the number of uncontrolled wildfires by 9%. This would mean reducing the burn of an average of 107,920 hectares of forest per year and savings of € 899,3 million.
