2022 Workshop on AI and Simulation for Natural Disaster Management Hybrid Mode -- July 17, 2022 https://rescuesim.robocup.org/upcoming-events/2022-workshop/
TUTORIALS ========= Hands-on activities to introduce and consolidate the participant's knowledge and skills with the Rescue Simulation platforms. The planned tutorials are:
- Introduction to Rescue Simulation (2 hours) This tutorial will endow the participants with basic understanding of the structure and dynamic aspects of the Rescue Simulator and Simulation code. The tutorial also will cover more practical aspects: * Simulator installation and configuration * Simulation executions * Simple Rescue Agent Team code modification
- Implementing Rescue Team using Python (2 hours) This tutorial will introduce the new Python API developed to interact with the Rescue Simulator. The tutorial will detail the communication protocol between the Rescue Simulator with the Rescue Agent Team and guide the participants through a step-by-step process to develop a Rescue Agent Team using the Python API via incremental assignments.
- Unraveling ADF Framework The Agent Development Framework (ADF) is a modular and flexible framework that enables the development of Rescue Agent Teams for the Rescue Simulator. This tutorial will details the structure and propose incremental assignments to help participants grap the dynamics of the framework. The tutorial will also guide the participants through the installation and configuration of the framework.
DESCRIPTION ============ The intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and simulation may contribute to the advance of natural disaster management. AI and simulation models and tools, however, have to embed the required features and capabilities of this domain application in order to support in real-world disaster scenarios. Hence, the collaboration with field experts and policy-makers in the natural disaster domain becomes essential.
The workshop aims to gather together and build a community of researchers, disaster responders, and policy-makers interested in developing and applying AI and simulation techniques for natural disaster management.
The workshop is relevant because it will help to create a bridge between technology experts and disaster management practitioners aligning their understand, interpretation, and expectations of each other enabling an environment for the exchange of ideas.
The workshop will be structured as a mix of - Invited talks - Technical/Research presentations - Tutorials
