Disaster resilience is an area ripe for the use of artificial intelligence technologies. While some governments, companies and universities are using AI for this work, most efforts are in the early stages. AI technologies could help governments more quickly and efficiently identify risks, predict disasters and assess damage during and after an event.
Recognizing the benefits of AI for disaster resilience in states at risk of natural disasters, such as California, the Partnership for Public Service worked with Microsoft to examine ways AI could help the federal, state and local governments improve their resilience. Read the findings in our white paper, “Into the Storm: Using artificial intelligence to improve California’s disaster resilience.”
