In this workshop we will explore the current challenges faced by companies involved in the different phases of a social / humanitarian crisis. The goal is to identify how innovation in the Geospatial arena and advancement in Machine Learning can help these companies reduce costs and unlock new applications.

This workshop follows on from our Geospatial 2.0 workshop in July 2016.

The workshop will bring together academic and industry experts as well as users who focus on:

  • Disaster prevention, management and response
  • Natural and man-made disasters (e.g. earthquakes, flooding, oil spills, migration…)
  • Insurance and risk management

The attendees will be invited to identify specific opportunities where the application of new techniques can overcome the end user challenges.
