  • Earth engine was built for science, to do global analysis to ask new questions but it has a use one step further, and use apply science apply the science of disasters at this scale.(watch up tones) (ill give you an example of a collaborative research project)-but we could leverage this technology together with science, what does that mean for crisis mapping. I’m gonna show you how we have leveraged google earth engine to answer this question,
  • One solution- use science to refine (PRACTICE SAYING ONE SENTENCE PER SLIDE). This takes years of developing and days to run the model
  • Who would need to do this on the fly? Crisis mappers- mention who this technology exists todayGoogle earth engine can take terabytes of information and can analyzed scientific methods and algorithms on a speed and scale that’s never been done before.(im using this platform in my research).
  • We pull from both social and natural science to write that algortihm. I study hydrology, and bessie, who here with me today in the front row studies social science.
  • When we run this algorithm it gives us a real time risk surface anywhere in the US, pinpointing the location and number of people most affected.
  • Make the transition to next section
  • Whatif
  • Text or phone (making the science faster and to more people) (website, or an text message), or by a more prepared red cross.When scientists, programmers, and disaster reliefe experts come together…
  • Yale and thanks this is a proof concept that we’ve built but in order to achieve its full potential we came to nairobi to find looking for collaborators at this conference- disaster relief managers, better programers, to help us test the accuracy, improving the science and find better applications for this.
  • IFRC one
  • IFRC two
  • Or process later
  • The coolest areas of AI don’t exist in reality.
  • Some of you know why someone would call Katy Perry a Prism.

  • The ignite talks before me… Wow…. Their slides , Amazing….. Now you have me!!!!! A bit of background to why this presentation is not “all singing and dancing as the professional ones before”

How much will it cost to evacuate? How do I move my elderly or sick loved one? What is everyone else in my neighborhood doing? Are they evacuating? Where would I evacuate to? What do city/parish officials advise? What do trusted local newscasters think? How does this storm compare with others that I've experienced? How severe is it? What is the path of the storm? What is the status of evacuation routes? What options are there if I have no car? How should I prepare my home for a potentially long-term evacuation? What stores are still open for last-minute supplies? What supplies do I need to ride out the storm? What are the essential things I need to take for a potentially long-term evacuation? Where can I get food and supplies along my evacuation route? Where are all of my friends and family? How can we let everyone know where we ended up? And check in with those who stayed behind? What are the essential things I need to know about my destination? How to keep sick/elderly/young children safe on the road? Where can I get medical care along my evacuation route?

How to tap into charities and donations to ease the cost of evacuation? How do I stay in touch with people if the phone are lines down? How can I share the news about what's happening with the outside world? Who else in my neighborhood is also staying? Where can I get news updates specific to my neighborhood? Where should I store my possessions? Are there are authorities in my area sticking around (in case I need help)? What services are still up and running (e.g. police, fire)? If my home floods, where is the nearest safe place? Is there anyone around that needs shelter? Where is everyone and what is their status? Where can I get medical help? What pharmacies are open? How do I care for the sick or injured if there aren't medical facilities near by? How can I alert the outside world to conditions in my area? What are the announcements by city/local officials? What resources does my community have so we can share? How to alert others to resources I've found? When will the national guard or police be here (for safety)? How safe are the conditions in my area? How do I keep my area safe? When will power be back on in my area? Where in the area is there still power? Where is there WiFi?

Where can I get coupons for food, basic necessities? What is the wait time at stores and other service centers? Where can I go to get donations (clothes, etc.)? What are the requirements and deadlines for financial aid? What kind of aid can I qualify for? How can I dispute a rejection for aid? How can I keep track of where my applications stand? If I apply for one type, will I be disqualified for another? I've lost important documents in the storm. What are the steps to building a new life elsewhere? I need to find a new job or source of income since my job went with the storm. Where can I get mental health or spiritual help for PTSD? What are the steps in rebuilding a damaged home?

    127. 127. Community engagement a.) Regular community screening forums where short films were watched and debated by participants. b.) Feed back forums where data and blog stories are shared offline to invited community members and leaders. c.) Map printing and distribution to organizations and agencies that need them. d.)

    131. 131. Success stories • Map Kibera’s Security maps used by Police and Peace builders to enhance security and promote peace in the local neighborhoods. Printed Maps were distributed to the Police, The local administration and the District Peace Committees in both locations.
    132. 132. • Map Kibera successfully used its methodology and tools to monitor the 2013 general elections in Kibera, Mathare and partially in Mukuru slums reducing likelihood of violence to almost zero in these election hotspot locations.
    133. 133. • Since Map Kibera began focusing on dangerous or ‘black spots’ and mapping them in Kibera and Mathare, New police posts have been constructed in response.
    134. 134. • Kibera and Mathare slums are now open more open and accessible than before. Generated map data has made development agencies and devolved government committees enhance their intervention approaches to minimize duplication of projects and design more relevant interventions.
    135. 135. • Several agencies, researchers and organizations continue to approach Map Kibera for more data on various thematic subjects covered by Map Kibera’s mapping.
