July Monthly Meeting - Blockchain and Hurricane Harvey: IBM Resilience and Recovery Support to Texas
Tuesday, July 9 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
What do blockchain and Hurricane Harvey have in common? IBM can tell you!
Natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey serve as economic, social, political, and environmental disruptors that pose a critical threat to the well-being of all citizens. Inadequate planning and coordination and inefficient recovery processes diminish survivors’ quality of life, impair effective management of time-sensitive scenarios, delay clean-up efforts, and make it nearly impossible to invest in future, preventative efforts.
Through the development of a blockchain-based citizen assistance application, the goal of the IBM Resiliency and Recovery Support to Texas project was to transform back-end processes and enable community stakeholders to establish a culture of natural disaster preparedness, catalyzing a public shift in focus from reactive, recovery-based initiatives to proactive, resiliency-based initiatives.
