World-renowned sociobiologist and futurist, Rebecca Costa, will keynote at IAEM's annual conference

from IAEM

Rebecca Costa, a world-renowned expert on “fast adaptation” will deliver an Oct. 23 plenary session on “The Good, the Bad, and the Actionable: Using Foresight and Data to Pre-dapt” at the IAEM 66th Annual Conference & EMEX in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Costa has developed an extensive track record of introducing disruptive, bleeding-edge technologies to clients such as Hewlett-Packard, Apple, Oracle, General Electric, 3M and others. Fresh off her national book tour, the author of The Watchman’s Rattle and On the Verge will guide emergency practitioners through groundbreaking technologies used to forecast future outcomes with historic accuracy. According to Costa, reacting to fast-changing ground conditions is no longer enough. Emergency responders must embrace tools such as predictive analytics, blockchain, crowd-sourcing, drones, satellite tracking, and more to “pre-dapt.” Using real world disasters - from hurricane relief in Puerto Rico and wild fires in California to a deadly flu season – Costa demonstrates how new technologies are being used to minimize disaster response and recovery.
