What are SPELL and PAIRS?
SPELL is a research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs an Climate Action and  with the topic AI in incident and situation management. Since June, 12 partners led by the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) have been working on a semantic platform for intelligent decision and deployment support in control centers and situation centers. The aim is to use artificial intelligence to initiate measures to avert danger, provide emergency aid and supply the population more quickly in crisis situations (for example, major incidents, pandemics, natural disasters or widespread power outages).
PAIRS stands for "Privacy-Aware, intelligent and Resilient Crisis Management" and is also funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs an Climate Action. The consortium's mission is to develop a service-oriented infrastructure that supports companies in implementing early warning systems to maintain supply chains and productivity. At the same time, the availability of services is to be secured and marketability strengthened. Identifying threat levels, adapting to crisis events and transforming disruptions into economic benefits builds on demand-driven integration and use of data-driven, complementary and trusted services of a federated infrastructure.
