As a category one or two responder, you know how important fast and accurate information is when handling disruptive events. Knowing exactly what is happening on the ground, how a situation is developing and how people are feeling allows you to react more quickly. Today’s data-driven society offers new opportunities to gain these insights faster.
However, each phase of an emergency has information management challenges that must be understood and overcome. For example, how to cut through the noise? Or how to share information with colleagues and other stakeholders? In our whitepaper, we take a closer look at these challenges and identify the innovations that enable more effective information management.
One of these innovations is “Real-time Intelligence”. In today’s world, the most relevant and up-to-date public data can be found on social media. Effective monitoring of these platforms can provide a clear picture of what is happening outside. Yet, if this data is not accessible, disaster response teams may miss vital information that can help make decisions. In order to monitor effectively, however, these teams need a reliable system that filters and highlights the right information. Thanks to current technologies (e.g. Natural Language Processing), algorithms and semantic search, it is possible to sort through all publicly available social media data to identify information relevant to an incident.
As mentioned, there are more innovations that can benefit the information management of emergency response teams. Interested in finding out more? Download our white paper below.
