Abstract

In a constantly evolving and hyper connected world, the crises we are facing are changing, exceeding borders, and impacting every sector of activity. More data can be gathered from the crisis site, arriving in a large flow of various types from multiple sources such as sensors, open data, or social media. This huge amount of data coming continuously from the crisis site leads to an ever-changing situational awareness, that must be built and understood as quickly as it is evolving, to ensure a relevant and effective crisis response. The tools in traditional crisis cells may not be able to keep up with the new requirements induced by these changes: we need modular and dynamic tools able to adapt to the crisis and the needs of the crisis managers, while ensuring collaboration and information sharing not only between the stakeholders but also with remote experts that might be needed to understand the situation. We need to start conceiving the future crisis cell, that would meet the new exigencies of crisis management. This paper proposes our version of that future crisis cell, using virtual reality to provide a dynamic and modular crisis cell linked to artificial intelligence and decision-support systems.

Keywords: crisis management, Situational awareness, decision-support, Virtual reality
