SPELL – AI in operations and situation management
SPELL is the semantic platform for intelligent decision and operations support in control and situation centers. The goal is to initiate measures for hazard prevention, emergency aid, and care for the population more quickly and in line with the crisis situation, which can be for example, major incidents, pandemics, natural disasters or widespread power outages. This is to be achieved with the help of artificial intelligence.
In crisis situations, it is necessary that we distribute our resources correctly and make the right decisions based on the available information. A prerequisite is a situation picture as a comprehensive overview of all relevant information and a crosslinking of all involved parties. The current pandemic is a good example of this. A well-founded and good decision needs a lot of data for a comprehensive situation picture – a crisis, on the other hand, requires quick decisions. In this area of conflict between good and fast decisions, artificial intelligence can make a significant contribution by analysing an extensive amount of data and presenting it in a compact form for decision-making.
