In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, IMI’s Tech Talk wants to focus on the technologies used in disaster situations. We’ve asked Robin Murphy to come share her knowledge on technologies involved in disaster situations.
Robin Murphy is the Raytheon Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M, an IEEE Fellow, and director of the Center for Emergency Informatics/Emergency Informatics EDGE® Innovation Center and the Center for Robot-Assisted Search and Rescue.
