Partnered with wearables, AI is being used to make first responders safer on the job

Firefighters have a truly noble job as their responsibilities often require putting one's own life on the line. A NASA researcher is using the Assistant for Understanding Data through Reasoning, Extraction, and sYnthesis (AUDREY), an artificial intelligence tool, to make a day's work a bit easier and safer for these heroes.
