Today, India is facing number of challenges, owing to uncontrolled population growth and development activities in the past. Climate change and disasters, environmental degradation and pollution of natural resources, water scarcity, over exploitation of natural resources and proliferation of slums are amongst the most pressing challenges, which are required to have immediate actions to achieve goals of sustainable development. Finding appropriate solutions to these challenges are not very easy as these are very complex in nature and require the state-of-the art technology for the collection, measurement, handling, analyzing large volumes of different data sets. However, the recent advances in sensor technology, coupled with rapid development of computational power, have greatly enhanced our abilities to capture, store and analyze the surrounding physical environment.
A field evolved, alongside this progress, is field of Geo-Intelligence(GI). GI is at the forefront of predicting and mitigating disasters and disaster response. GI coupled with Earth Observation Technology provides a sophisticated framework to adddress issues at all levels of disaster response and recovery.
GI Technology will play a significant role in providing vital services. Looking at the potential of GI Technology to address the challenges faced by our civilization, there is a need to deliberate on developing a framework where GI technology can be augmented through advances in Big Data and Artificial Intelligence(AI). GI technology should evolve to cater to a computing framework for location-based data, integrating earth observation and predictive modeling in order to recognize complex patterns and phenomena.
In Light of recent advances, we have taken the initiative of conducting a National Conference on Geo-intelligence with the following objectives:
1. Deliberation to define the role and value of Geo-Intelligence(GI) technology towards sustainable development.
2. Stock-making of domain-wise strategies to leverage GI to create opportunities for researchers and decision makers.
3. Creation of an action plan to follow-up on outcomes of the conference and build partnerships.
