Artificial intelligence for disaster risk reduction

Image

From early warning systems to evacuation models, artificial intelligence is behind a number of promising innovations for disaster risk reduction.

Wildfires are a worldwide problem requiring global collaboration to successfully manage and minimise the risk of occurrence. Artificial intelligence algorithms, combined with end-to-end fire management systems, are powerful tools for combating wildfires.
