Emerging Technology NASA AI to power first-responder tech By Adam Mazmanian Aug 31, 2015 There’s more data than ever available to first responders, but finding the right data at the right time poses big challenges. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory might have an answer. JPL is working on an artificial intelligence solution called Audrey (Assistant for Understanding Data through Reasoning, Extraction, and sYnthesis) that is designed to help local law enforcement, firefighters and other first responders filter the clutter of available information to achieve situational awareness. “Too much information can overwhelm a person,” said Ed Chow, an engineer who leads the Homeland Security project portfolio at JPL’s National Space Technology Applications Office. Audrey, he explained, is an outgrowth of NASA’s efforts to extract insights from its 500TB and growing Planetary Data…
