Technologies like artificial intelligence, sensor networks and advances in mapping are driving the work

Additionally, Burton is using artificial intelligence to help guide post-earthquake inspections to assess how much the structural strength of tall buildings is reduced by earthquake damage. The technology can inform optimal sensor placement in these buildings, as well as provide real-time risk projections in aftershock environments.
