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.
