Next monsoon, people living in the flood-prone areas in Assam will be able to check inundation levels on their smartphones using Google map like the Uber and Ola drivers check traffic on city streets.

Google is working on a flood-inundation model using artificial intelligence to provide inundation data of the Brahmaputra and Barak river basins to help residents, living mainly in the downstream areas, check flood levels online and accordingly take preventive steps to control damage.

Google will update inundation data with inputs provided by the Central Water Commission (CWC) following an agreement signed between the two agencies in June this year.
