Amir Behzadan hosts workshop for culturally sensitive AI solutions to disasters

Amir Behzadan, professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering and a faculty research fellow of the Natural Hazards Center, hosted the Harnessing Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Disaster Management workshop on April 19. The AI4DM workshop aimed to address disaster and emergency management’s hesitation toward AI, as well as a lack of diversity in the workplace leading to subsequent delayed or unfair aid to lower income communities hit by disasters. Susan Glairon, communications specialist for the Community Engagement, Design and Research Center (CEDaR) writes more about the workshop and its implications for disaster and emergency management here.
