CREXDATA Showcases Progress at the Disaster Competence Network Austria Symposium

Date: September 11, 2023
Location: Leoben, Austria

Leoben, Austria – The innovative scope and ambitions of the CREXDATA project made a significant mark at the recent Disaster Competence Network Austria (DCNA) symposium held on the 11th of September in Leoben, Austria. Dr.-Ing. Jens Pottebaum, a key figure in the CREXDATA project, shared the initial findings and future plans of the project, elucidating the audience about the challenges and opportunities presented by extreme data, especially in the context of extreme weather scenarios.

The presentation emphasized the importance of information quality when navigating through the vast terrains of data, especially when the stakes are as high as predicting or reacting to extreme weather situations. The potential of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence was spotlighted, with particular reference to their applications in flood scenarios, like those in Innsbruck.

This participation further reinforces CREXDATA’s commitment to cross-border collaboration and knowledge sharing, ensuring that the fruits of research are made available to the wider community, and real-world applications are explored extensively.

For those interested in delving deeper into the project or the symposium, you can find more information on the CREXDATA website and the official DCNA platform. We look forward to more such engagements and remain committed to advancing the understanding and applications of extreme data in real-world scenarios.
