Proactive Medical Resource Allocation and Deployment toward Intelligent Disaster Management
Abstract: The recent variability in global natural environments and induced disasters including COVID-19 outbreaks surging worldwide are lastingly and unpredictably affecting our lives, leading to more challenges in disaster management. The content of the presentation contains two major parts with two purposes. The first is to summarize the speaker’s published works on emergency logistics management to clarify the issues remaining and motivate more research for potential solutions, including the development of self-organized emergency logistics mobilization and intelligent disaster management (IDM) systems. The second part is to share the speaker’s experience in conducting a government-sponsored IDM-related research project aiming at developing a data-driven methodology for proactive medical resource allocation and deployment using real database provided Taiwan Earthquake impact Research and Information Application (TERIA) platform. The presentation is expected to stimulate our audiences, particularly for scholars and students, to not only create innovative research works, but also better our lives by utilizing advanced IDM technologies to alleviate disaster impact for moving toward the ultimate goal of sustainable development on earth.
