Southern California Edison created a Safety Predictive Model using artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to flag higher than average work risk activities that may lead to a life-threatening or life-altering incident causing injury or death. The model uses work order data, structure characteristics, injury records, experience, and training. As the model continues to learn the new work orders being processed into the system, it will recommend specific approaches to reduce the risk of a job.
Amazon applied artificial intelligence and machine learning to the camera footage in their buildings to help site leaders identify high traffic areas and implement additional measures to improve social distancing. They later built on this technology to promote social distancing behavior in real-time.
