Washington, D.C. — January 5, 2021— Today, Disaster Tech, the leader in decision science technologies for disaster management, celebrates one year withNVIDIA Inception, a program designed to nurture startups revolutionizing industries with advancements in AI and data sciences.
Disaster Tech’s Data science Integrated Collaboration Environment (DICE) platform uses geospatial analytics, artificial intelligence, and open source software techniques to the maximum extent possible, improving quality, security, and flexibility needed for disaster forecasting and preparation. By leveraging these techniques, Disaster Tech provides decision support with actionable intelligence and applies them to various use cases across the disaster relief lifecycle. At its core, DICE is using real-time cross sector data for situational awareness and operational coordination across multiple hazards such as wildfires, hurricanes, and infectious diseases.
NVIDIA Inception has allowed Disaster Tech to accelerate data science workloads in DICE, by leveraging the power of GPU infrastructure, and allowing platform users to compute machine learning and deep learning applications in time sensitive environments. The program has also offered Disaster Tech the opportunity to collaborate with industry-leading experts and other AI-driven organizations. “Emergency management is far behind other industries in tech advancements,” said Sean Griffin, CEO and co-founder of Disaster Tech. “NVIDIA’s accelerated data science technologies allow us to stand by our mission of saving more lives, money and time by bringing agile technology to an industry that has desperately lacked innovation. Many of the challenges to effective emergency management are due not to technology but to governance, and Disaster Tech is here to give emergency managers the tools they need to build resilient communities.”
NVIDIA Inception is a program that helps startups during critical stages of product development, prototyping and deployment. Every Inception member gets a custom set of ongoing benefits, such as NVIDIA Deep Learning Institutecredits, marketing support and technology assistance, that provides startups with fundamental tools to help them grow.
