Foreseeing, Assessing and Mitigating a Global Pandemic Using Advanced Technologies

Emergencies can happen anywhere, at any time and in any shape or form. The very nature of its unpredictability signifies the importance of being prepared and staying planned to deal with any eventuality. Emergency response needs to grow and evolve to keep up with the demands of the modern world. This is where innovative technologies play a critical role in improving efficiency and responsiveness; reaching more people, sooner, effectively, and ultimately saving lives and ensuring citizen happiness.

We are already seeing advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Predictive Analytics, Drones and Autonomous Vehicles, Geographic Information Systems and Satellite Imagery, Real-time Scenario Planning and Modelling, Blockchain, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing and much more being deployed to provide a more efficient, collaborated and rapid response to emergencies, across multiple agencies; be it the police, fire service, medical response, or any other front liners of emergency response.

For this year, the focus of the forum will be on “Foreseeing, Assessing and Mitigating a Global Pandemic Using Advanced Technologies”. The UAE Vision 2021 and Dubai 10X initiatives have played an integral role in helping the UAE government respond swiftly and efficiently in containing the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) making it one of the safest countries in the world.

Bringing together senior government officials, innovative technology solution providers and early adopters from different international organisations, the Emergency Response Tech Forum: Global Pandemic, will highlight key Learnings, partnerships, investment in technologies and digital transformation initiatives that are being deployed to contain the pandemic, reduce its impact on the community and economies alike and examine how the emergency response sector can adopt these technologies even beyond the current pandemic.
