Artificial Intelligence for Early Prediction of Flood and Famine

In our Sri Amit Ray Compassionate AI Lab, we experimented with different Artificial Intelligence-based machine learning algorithms for active and early flood and famine prediction, planning, coordination, and awareness development. With the rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), satellite and radar imaging technologies, sensor technologies, and deep learning algorithms of AI,  it is possible to predict flood situations in advance, which integrates remote sensing (RS), Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and Global Positioning Systems (GPS).

With the help of this prediction we can prevent human loss and a lot of secondary disasters such as mudflows, landslides, desertification, and water shortages and immense property losses to people and overall economic losses.
