Rapid and comprehensive situational information is vital for rapid, joined-up response on disruptive events and disasters.
It has been proven that people tend to share remarkable events directly on social media. Often before emergency services are alerted. It is precisely this up-to-date information before, during and after the incident that provides invaluable insights.
Whether it concerns large-scale accidents, natural disasters or terrorist attacks, actions in the first hour determine the further course of an incident. In this ‘Golden Hour’ you want to have a quick insight into the circumstances on the spot, so you can act with knowledge and prevent escalation.
Billions of new messages or videos are released every day on Twitter, Facebook, blogs, Youtube and news media. News spreads at lightning speed. For example, the earthquake in Groningen on 14 July 2020. Online messages from residents were detected within 16 seconds by PublicSonar.
Only through the use of intelligent technology can you convert large amounts of data into fast, applicable insights. PublicSonar makes technology accessible to detect an emergency situation early, make the right decisions and follow developments. The personalised searches can easily be adjusted if the situation requires it. Our AI solution is designed to facilitate collaboration and meet compliance requirements.
Each phase of a disaster has its own information needs and challenges. With the right insights from large amounts of data, you can focus on the appropriate response.
