Artificial Intelligence for Geodesy in support of Natural Disaster Management

The Chair of the IAG-GGOS Focus Area Artificial Intelligence for Geodesy (IA4G), Benedikt Soja, gave a keynote presentation highlighting some of the ways that Geodesy can be used in conjunction with AI for seismic hazards during the Workshop AI for Natural Disaster Management transitions into Global Initiative held at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre from 13-15 March 2024.

This is a joint initiative of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the UN Environment (UNEP) Focus Group on AI for Natural Disaster Management, supported by the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS) and the International Association of Geodesy (IAG).

Benedikt’s contribution is in line with the main objective of IAG-GGOS to promote the incubation of new concepts, technologies, products and applications by identifying new research areas and hosting GGOS Focus Areas as cross-disciplinary entities to work towards future integrated products needed for a better understanding of our dynamic planet, including natural hazards, disaster risk reduction and many other challenges of our modern society.
