How can you effectively communicate risks using emerging technologies

Overview

My project aims to look into Disaster Risk Preparedness from a Risk Communication perspective. The main objective of the research is to use tools such as Augmented Reality and AI to design a game-based solution for the indigenous communities of Pakistan and New Zealand. The main question that I aim to answer through my research is: How can you effectively communicate risks using emerging technologies for people to be better prepared for disasters?
