Advancements in communication technologies have allowed for communication to take place almost instantaneously across virtual and digital settings. In the context of risks and crises, this presents a unique set of challenges, in which an individual may be required to make split-second decisions which can remove them from harm, without having much time to consider the information or its accuracy. One such technology which may help significantly in this space is artificial intelligence (AI). AI in the context of risk and crises could allow for less human intervention and offer quicker solutions when necessary - but one must consider the novelty and newness of this technology before deploying more widely to ensure it can be utilized with success. This chapter explores some of these early conversations and research topics, as AI becomes more widely adopted in risk and crisis contexts.
