Navigating the Digital Frontier: AI’s Increasing Influence on PSAP Operations

Jeremy Banks
Sr. Product Manager, Carbyne

180 Million – that’s the number of people who currently use Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools as part of their lives. However during my years as Communications Officer in Utah, the only AI we witnessed was in science fiction movies. What we did witness in real life however is countless emergencies – including the North Salt Lake landslide, Spanish Fork Canyon vehicle explosions, Trolley Square Active Shooting, and innumerable other examples. While Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) during my time under the headset were not necessarily at the bleeding edge in adopting new AI technologies, nowadays many trailblazing communications centers are incorporating AI technologies as part of their workflows. This is because AI can help with many of the challenges faced by PSAPs today.
