In Copenhagen, an AI assistant named Corti helps identify the nature of emergency calls in real time

Quick thinking and action are crucial in helping someone who is experiencing cardiac arrest. Copenhagen wants to improve the reaction time of emergency services by having an AI assistant named Corti listen in on emergency calls.

Corti listens for specific signs in the caller's voice and breathing during the phone conversation. Corti takes this vocal information and analyzes it across millions of other emergency calls to detect similar patterns. These indicators help it determine the nature of the emergency, which Corti then provides to the emergency responder and along with recommendations on how to handle the situation.
