  5. 5. Clesafety.com Current State-of-the-Art: Decision makers rely on web tools that visualize archived simulations & historical events or display current situational data with limited to no predictive/forecasting capabilities  CyberEye Advancement: Rapid Risk Assessment (RRA) workflow supports, high-fidelity, real-time probabilistic assessments for arbitrary, user-specified hurricane/typhoon scenarios to support both emergency management planning and response activities 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org

  8. 8. Current State-of-the-Art: Post-disaster field reconnaissance represents one of the most valuable data sources to enhance resilience; however, these activities are often poorly coordinated with multiple parties executing independent surveys using different data gathering instruments and no centralized repository for that data nor tools to aid in its curation and discovery  CyberEye Advancement: Data Intake and Discovery (DID) workflow provides open repository for field reconnaissance data, with variety of supported fields and dynamic data visualization and discovery tools 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org

  12. 12. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Conclusions • Population shifts toward coastal areas enhances urgency to assess and mitigate coastal hazards • Collective knowledge is often not effectively integrated by established, stand-alone frameworks for risk assessment • Propose transition to web-based platforms overcomes that harness this knowledge and allow seamless dissemination of risk information to key stakeholders • CyberEye (cybereye.nd.edu) is web-based collaboration space providing users with a customizable dashboard • Two distinct workflows were demonstrated for this environment: Rapid Risk Assessment (RRA) and Data Intake & Discovery (DID) • Platform will continue to be expanded with other data, tolls and capabilities • Better inform decision making by stakeholders in coastal regions, even in near-real time as these storms approach. • Framework is readily extensible to other types of hazards for which rapid risk assessment and data curation, visualization and discovery is needed
  13. 13. Added value for the Post 2015 Framework for 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Disaster Risk Reduction • How did your work support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action: – Ability to identify, assess and monitor disaster risks and enhance early warning can be dramatically advanced through the use of efficient web platforms like CyberEye (Priority 2) – By virtualizing the capacity for reliable and near-real time decision making through simplified and efficient web-tools, CyberEye has already facilitated the transformation of knowledge into action for decision makers in high risk areas, enabling individual as well as collective actions to reduce risk and build resilience (Priority 3) • From your perspective what are the main gaps, needs and further steps to be addressed in the Post 2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in – Research: Developing simulation tools that more effectively assess risk in complex, interconnected urban environments but have low barriers to adoption – Education & Training: Programming to support practitioners and decision makers in the adoption of and contributions toward development of innovative tools and platforms for risk assessment and mitigation – Implementation & Practice: Centralizing data and simulation tools within an organization that can assure long term support and community stewardship – Policy: Incentivize open data initiatives to provide the critical information necessary to driven next generation simulation tools to support decision makers
