  • Interesting presentation! do you have the voice that comes with it? I think one pattern to note is the supporting of interoperability standards for data structures. And as a growing trend, the need of data versioning standards that allow multi-master data ownership - so every user can choose the system to interact with knowing it's in the end updating the same 'cloud' dataset (and this 'cloud' dataset isn't owned by 'one' system or organization only). These disaster scenarios will IMO push the notions of 'data interoperability' with web standards faster than enterprise or SMB scenarios, where most Saas application providers beleive have a buck to earn by keeping your data locked in. ~ej

  • 1. Disaster Tech Mikel Maron Jesse Robbins
  • 2. Learn how to turn your emerging technology into lifesaving technology.
  • 3. Pattern: Disaster Tech Innovation 1.Disaster 2.Ad-Hoc Adaptation 3.Championship 4.Iterative Improvement
  • 4. <breathe>
  • 5. Hurricane Katrina ‣ 1800+ Dead ‣ Millions displaced ‣ $81+ Billion in Damage
  • 6. Ad-Hoc Adaptation: Many Using Gmaps http://twitter.com/nateritter
  • 7. ARC: “Take the I-90 bridge...” Jesse: “The bridge is destroyed” ARC: “but Google says...”
  • 8. Problem: Google Maps isn’t Realtime Post Katrina 2007 2007 http://twitter.com/nateritter
  • 9. Champion: OpenStreetMap (OSM)
  • 10. Iteration: UN considering OSM •UNJLC Interagency Humanitarian Common Service •Building UNSDI-t from the top down •But now considering OSM for lightweight, open bottom up
  • 11. Pattern: Disaster Tech Innovation 1.Disaster 2.Ad-Hoc Adaptation 3.Championship 4.Iterative Improvement
  • 12. <breathe>
  • 13. San Diego Wildfires ‣ 900,000+ Evacuees ‣ 500,000 Acres Burned ‣ 1500+ Homes Destroyed
  • 14. Ad-Hoc Adaptation: Nate Ritter’s Twitters http://twitter.com/nateritter http://twitter.com/nateritter
  • 15. Ad-hoc Adaptation: American Red Cross http://twitter.com/redcross
  • 16. Champion: InSTEDD - SMS GeoChat
  • 17. Iteration: InSTEDD Working with traditional Disaster Agencies to build new tools. Distributing work as Open Source
  • 18. <breathe>
  • 19. Boxing Day Tsunami 225,000 Dead
  • 20. Boxing Day Tsunami 225,000 Deaths Preventable with existing technologies
  • 21. Ad-Hoc Adaptation: JRC Tsunami Model 1.USGS GeoRSS earthquake feed 2.EU Commission lightweight tsunami propagation model 3.GeoRSS polygons republished
  • 22. Ad-Hoc Adaptation: JRC Tsunami Model
  • 23. Champion: GDACS: Global Disaster Alert & Coordination System http://www.gdacs.org
  • 24. Iteration: Pending. Will these technologies save lives? We won’t know until they do... or don’t.
  • 25. saving lives means losing lives
  • 26. <breathe>
  • 27. anti-pattern
  • 28. Anti-Pattern 1.Disaster 2.Ad-Hoc Adaptation 3.Championship 4.Iterative Improvement
  • 29. Ad-hoc Adaptation: Tenacious Search Distributed analysis of imagery for Search & Rescue Images put into Amazon.com’s Mechanical Turk crowdsourcing tool. Possible hits sent to experts for review.
  • 30. Source: http://www.wired.com/techbiz/people/magazine/15-08/ff_jimgray_lost
  • 31. Champion: none. Public now believes that this is easily repeatable.
  • 32. Iteration: Steve Fossett Search Inadequate training for volunteers. Many false positives. People called SAR teams directly which hindered search.
  • 33. Anti-Pattern “In hindsight, I wish it hadn’t been there, because it didn’t produce a darn thing that was productive except for being a giant black hole for energy, time and resources. There may come a day when this technology is capable of doing what it says it can deliver, but boy, that’s not now.” - Maj. Cynthia Ryan http://www.humanitarian.info/2007/11/08/the-perils-of-the-distributed-approach/
  • 34. New Champions: InternetSAR
  • 35. New Champions: InternetSAR “ABSOLUTELY UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES are InternetSAR.org participants to report objects found in imagery we provide directly to search authorities. [...] The reason for this policy is that our systems are set up to manage and filter reports for search teams and those who bypass our reporting system can actually impede the efforts of search teams.”

  • 38. Be Champions
  • 39. you don’t choose the moment... the moment chooses you. You only choose how prepared you are when it does... -Chief Mike Burtch Mikel Maron - mikel@mapufacture.com Jesse Robbins - jesse@oreilly.com
