Cross Domain Data Fusion and Analytics of Social Media in Disaster Management
The idea of this research is to analyse multi-modal data in social networks and other sources such as online news, blogs and CCTV recordings during a crisis situation to provide quick information to disaster responders. The expected outcome would be a software tool or an algorithm which would fuse disaster-related multimedia data from different sources. The particular use case in Emergency Traffic Management (ETM).
This research is very important as it automatically combines multimodal data during the cause of an incident. Therefore, it is helpful to Emergency Management in New Zealand.
NZTA, City councils and MCDEM
I'm from Sri Lanka. I wanted to do a multi-disciplinary research which combines computer science with emergency management. Therefore, JCDR at Massey, Wellington was my first choice. I would like to contribute back my knowledge in AI for New Zealand as well as Sri Lanka. Therefore, I want excel more as a researcher.
