Among its humanitarian missions, the American Red Cross provides 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply, working in areas with varying levels of connectivity. Edge computing is enabling the nonprofit to build a resilient infrastructure to perform vital tasks such as verifying donors’ eligibility and scheduling their next appointment. In this session, we’ll l explore edge use cases as well as the organization’s other notable technical solutions including; using AI to suggest staffing levels and duration of blood drives; installing beacons to optimize the volunteer experience at its emergency shelters; and testing a machine learning model to assess damage following natural disasters.
