Robust Choice Cloud Solution Inc. is a startup company with a great portfolio of projects in several areas like: Meeting and Decision Support Systems, Artificial Intelligence for Emergencies, Sustainability Decision Support Tool and so on. One of their solutions offers, Cityplus.io, automates disaster recover resource obtainment to support affected citizens.
After a disaster strikes (e.g. earthquake) CityPlus can reach and chat with millions of citizens via messaging apps (e.g. SMS, Facebook Messenger, Skype, Telegram, Kik, Line, â€¦). In contrast to existing emergency systems that only have a one-way notification via SMS/Email, CityPlus enables a two-way communication with people via SMS, Email, Facebook Messenger, Skype, and potentially other popular messaging apps. In a matter of seconds, CityPlus not only does broadcast various messages (e.g. early warnings) to citizens, it also collects and analyzes their inputs in real time. We are working on integrating CityPlus with Microsoft Power BI to create real-time dashboards for local authorities. CityPlus also allows citizens to send voice messages, videos, images for richer understanding of the situation.
