No person, regardless of who they are or where they live, should be without the world's best technology to keep them safe during humanitarian crises, natural disasters or terrorist attacks. The confluence of early warning systems, community platforms, machine learning, social listening, and geo-location create an opportunity to develop real-time paths to safety for anyone in danger. And yet each year, tragic events around the world occur in which people are unsafe, uninformed, and unnecessarily at risk during emergencies. Join us as we introduce a new venture called Beacon, which combines innovative tech with the Salesforce platform to create an intelligent emergency response service for citizens and emergency responders alike. You'll see the offering at work and engage the team behind the vision in a discussion about how this novel combination of tech could be useful for a range of scenarios in which communities need to quickly work together in moments of crisis.
