This week we are launching a series of videos, in partnership with Siemens USA, showcasing how innovative technology is enhancing resilience.
The videos will cover a wide range of examples of technology helping resilience, from blockchain helping to protect Amazon rainforest, to wave power being used to desalinate seawater and drones being used to disinfect areas to protect us from covid19. The series is called Technology for Resilience #Tech4Resilience and the first video has just been released on our social media channels.
Technology can enhance the resilience of infrastructure, although it can also create new unintended vulnerabilities. The examples we’ve chosen are cutting edge, but we think provide enhanced resilience while introducing little in the way of new vulnerabilities. The series aims to showcase some of the ways technology is adding value to whole-system resilience, and how it is giving infrastructure decision-makers new opportunities to use it to contribute to a safe, sustainable and resilient future.
The first video covers drone technology, the second covers blockchain and the third is abotu how technology is helping water supplies. You can follow us using the links below, or by searching for #Tech4Resilience.
Many thanks to our partners at Siemens USA, and to all the innovators who have helped us put together our videos.
