Computing for Disasters with Robin Murphy
This webinar aims to introduce computer scientists to emergency management and how their research might apply to disaster prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. Participants will take away an understanding of the different phases of a disaster; how decision-making is organized in a disaster; the current state of the practice of informatics, the rising data overload from mobile devices, UAVs, and social networks; and the opportunities for computing. Hurricane Harvey will be used as the primary motivating example but lessons learned from over 29 disasters, starting with the 2001 9/11 World Trade Center collapse, will be included.
ACM award winners, leading researchers, industry veterans, thought leaders, and innovators address today and tomorrow's hottest topics and issues in computing for busy practitioners, as well as educators, students, and researchers.

Talks from some of the leading visionaries and bleeding-edge researchers in AI/ML: Fei-Fei Li on visual intelligence in computers and ImageNet; Eric Horvitz on AI solutions in the open world; and Tom Mitchell on using ML to study how the brain creates and represents language.
