Big data is saving lives around the globe by changing the way we prepare for and respond to emergencies. Splunk4Good works year around to support innovation in emergency management and Christy Wilson has paired with Greg Albrecht (@ampledata + CTO of OnBeep) to submit a talk on the topic to SXSWi’s PanelPicker.
In our talk “Big Data = Big Save: Innovation in Emergencies” you can learn about:
– Real-time analysis of river sensor data allowed for evacuation alerts that saved lives in Thailand.
– FEMA’s Innovation Team used social media feeds from Twitter & Foursquare to create operational intelligence that can improve disaster response and recovery.
– Dispatch directors of local Emergency Medical Services are using big data to improve first responders ability to save lives.
– Volunteer service coordinators are using big data analytics to better deploy volunteers based on weather and resource availability.
