Japan is especially prone to experiencing natural disasters due to its location. It is located within the Pacific Ocean’s ring of fire; an area which sees more earthquakes and natural disasters than anywhere else in the world.

To strengthen disaster response measures to protect citizens in Japan, KDDI, Toyota and OYO are demonstrating how the use of mobile big data and artificial intelligence is uniquely placed to support the Japanese local government’s response efforts.

KDDI has developed an AI powered support system that integrates information to help optimise national and local government response, providing powerful insights to support communities when hazards occur.
