Over 75 students participated in the first Crisis Response Game, a disaster simulation to experiment with the use of social media in crisis situations for data collection, task allocation and response
coordination, and to identify ways that relief organizations can more effectively track and analyze information using social-media based tools like TweetTracker and ACT to collaboratively respond to a real disaster. The project was coordinated by Huan Liu, professor in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering, and students in his Data Mining and Machine Learning Lab, along with partners including Humanity Road (an NGO), NSWCDD, Joint Staff, ONR and CMU.
