INTEC will develop AI simulator for risk management and climate emergencies


The project will be carried out with funds from India, after the research that supports it was selected by the Coalition for the Development of Disaster Resilient Infrastructure

SANTO DOMINGO. - The Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo (INTEC) will develop a simulator based on artificial intelligence for decision-making in risk management and climate emergencies, with financing from the Coalition for the Development of Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI), based in India.

The research will be developed together with the National Emergency Commission, and aims to expand their capabilities for making timely and informed decisions to mitigate risks and improve resilience in the face of climate-related challenges.

INTEC was elected winner of the CDRI call for research projects, among hundreds of proposals submitted from more than 20 eligible countries, and the certificate was received by Max Puig, Executive Vice President of the National Council for Climate Change and Clean Development Mechanism (CNCCMDL).

The simulator will integrate various data related to climate variables, historical disaster occurrences, infrastructure vulnerabilities, population demographics and economic indicators to determine the objective and subjective risk associated with climate change. The results will be used by the National Prevention, Mitigation and Response System, as well as by the National Integrated Information System, a technical-scientific instrument that houses and systematizes the country's disaster risk information.

This initiative will be developed with the support of the National Council for Climate Change and Clean Development Mechanism (CNCCMDL) under an incentive program for research and development of innovative solutions that solve real problems, particularly aimed at disaster risk management. , infrastructure resilience and climate change.

The project will last one year and will be led by Ulises Jáuregui Haza, research professor at INTEC and a team of researchers made up of doctoral students in  INTEC Environmental Sciences Juan Salas and Yanelba Abreu, together with Dr. Antonio Torres Valle, academic at the University of Havana, Cuba.

This action is carried out within the framework of a call for proposals aimed at developing countries, in which the Dominican Republic was promoted by the Embassy of the Dominican Republic in India.
