Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Has Disaster Resilience Track

Another example of how the tech industry is embracing resilience as a growing market.

I have previously shared other news that indicates how disasters and disaster resilience, in all its forms, is attracting investments in education and technology. The latest example of this is that the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (happening the first week of January) will feature a Resilience Track.

There is the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and drones, of course. Just another example of how technology is penetrating the field of emergency management. 

Note that CES is launching a Global Tech Challenge with the World Bank that, among other priorities, will invest in "Technologies that enable communities to be more resilient in the face of disasters and climate change.” Climate adaptation and resilience is our emergency-management-specific lane in the world of climate change. 

John Lawson shared the links above. He will be at CES himself talking about warnings and his Advanced Warning and Response Network, which has to do with next-gen TV. Watch for a future interview I'll be doing with John that will run in Emergency Management
