7 May 2019 Information fusion to estimate resilience of dense urban neighborhoods
Author Affiliations +
Diverse sociocultural influences in rapidly growing dense urban areas may induce strain on civil services and reduce the resilience of those areas to exogenous and endogenous shocks. We present a novel approach with foundations in computer and social sciences, to estimate the resilience of dense urban areas at finer spatiotemporal scales compared to the state-ofthe-art. We fuse multi-modal data sources to estimate resilience indicators from social science theory and leverage a structured ontology for factor combinations to enhance explainability. Estimates of destabilizing areas can improve the decision-making capabilities of civil governments by identifying critical areas needing increased social services.
