Parallel sessions - AI & Risk prevention

11/18/2020 | 10:15 - 12:15 | Laval Virtual


- Time schedule in France & Germany :  10:15 to 12:15
- Time schedule in Japan : 18:15 to 20:15
Japan is known to be prone to natural disasters of various kinds, including earthquakes, typhoons, tsunami and volcanic eruptions. As these are difficult to predict and impossible to avoid, Japan has no choice but to be as prepared as possible for them.
As a consequence of global warming and climate change, extreme situations such as fires, floods, storms and droughts are an increasingly frequent occurrence. Risk prevention is no longer a challenge impacting only few countries but is now crucial for all nations around the globe.

Furthermore, the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic is, with tragic consequences, showing us how risks can take various forms, how they do not respect borders, how lack of preparation can be critical and how co-operation between nations can help to overcome them.

This session will discuss how AI can help us to prepare ourselves to face and overcome those risks.

What advantages could Japan, France and Germany derive from working together (i.e. scientists, companies, political decision-makers, etc.) on this topic? Why? How can we improve co-operation and what are the current brakes and deadlocks?
