Solving Public Safety's Big Data Problem: ASAPS Workshop

WHEN
November 12 - November 13 / 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST
11/12/20 9:00 AM 11/13/20 5:00 PM America/New_York Solving Public Safety's Big Data Problem: ASAPS Workshop United States

Join us for a series of talks and expert-led forums centered on the ASAPS Challenge including an in-depth presentation of a first-ever multi-stream public safety dataset.

Explore the extensive development data set for this challenge and learn about our next contest, discuss field challenges related to real-time event detection and clustering, network with potential team members, and talk to our team of experts! Don’t miss your opportunity to work with us at the leading edge of agile multimodal analysis and fusion and discuss tools and capabilities to detect and analyze emergency events from live streaming multimodal public safety data.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Public Safety Communications Research Division (PSCR) is launching the Automated Streams Analysis for Public Safety (ASAPS) Challenge to address this need by fostering ground-breaking multidisciplinary research and innovation in real-time emergency data analytics. The overall vision of this program is to provide public safety with advanced real-time emergency detection, situational awareness, and decision-making capabilities from many live unstructured data streams.

The overall goal of the ASAPS Challenge program is to stimulate R&D in critical technologies that will lead to future products providing public safety with advanced real-time emergency detection, situational awareness, and decision-making capabilities based on input from many live, unstructured data streams. The program is designed to stimulate research in critically important technologies such as AI-based streaming data analysis, evolving emergency event understanding, highly actionable analytic information visualizations, and highly intuitive analytics-driven response-support interfaces that maximize situation awareness while minimizing response time. Additionally, we seek to leverage cross-participant knowledge and expertise, inspire the spirit of competition, and garner potential wins at all levels – from low-level data stream analysis to information fusion to real-time information delivery and interaction.

ASAPS strives to build technology for the future to help first responders save lives, property, and critical infrastructure by helping public safety to be more fully data-informed in responding to emergencies.

*Participants are invited to join at 9:00 a.m. (Eastern) for a virtual open lobby. Content for the ASAPS Workshop will begin at 10 a.m. (Eastern).
