AIFER - Artificial Intelligence for the Analysis and Fusion of Internet and Remote Sensing Data in Disaster Management

The frequency and intensity of natural disasters are constantly increasing and pose increasing challenges for authorities and organizations in crisis management, partiularly with regard to the availability and use of near-real-time and large-scale information for situation assessment. In addition, there are currently no solutions to automatically evaluate heterogeneous mass data, such as earth observation and Internet data, and to fuse them into a holistic and dynamically updated picture of the situation.

AIFER researches Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods to automatically extract and intelligently fuse information from satellite, aerial and drone data as well as from geo-social media and georeferenced news.
