Two days after what would be the worst earthquake to shake Turkey in a century, the “black” balance rose to 5,000 dead and 21,000 injured.
Given the fact, the Government of Mexico offered its help with a group of specialized rescuers.
Various Artificial Intelligence tools (AI) make it possible to graphically represent the emotions and passions of Internet users Just by describing moments, spaces, environments, features and even subjective sensations, even when it comes to an event as shocking as the 7.8 magnitude earthquake on the Richter scale that struck southern Turkey, near the border with Syria.
AI captures state of emergency in Turkey after earthquake
Thousands of Internet users around the world are empathizing with the inhabitants and survivors of Turkey and Syria, who last Monday saw nearly 5,600 buildings collapse due to the earthquake that left more than 5,000 dead and 21,000 injured.
The emotional impact and commotion that the event has generated so far, with the time trial search for people under the rubble, the distribution of food and the search for shelters between aftershocks and sub-zero temperatures, has led hundreds of users around the world Show your virtual support through videos, images, social media posts.
However, it has also led to the search for new means to represent the earthquake of magnitude 7.8 on the Richter scale, which has been considered by experts as the strongest that has occurred there since 1939.
With images and requests to midjourney, the AI managed to make a kind of memorial that graphically reflects the hundreds of collapsed buildings and trapped people who today are the object of support from numerous countriesincluding Mexico, the United States, Russia, Qatar, Kuwait, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Ukraine, India, Pakistan, the European Union, China, Austria, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, France, Greece, South Korea, Japan, and Germany, as well as some organizations such as the UN, WHO and many more, according to the Turkish Emergency and Disaster Management Agency (AFAD).
With an abstract and symbolic style, the pain and hope (key words of the petition) are reflected in the first variant of images about the earthquake in Turkey:
Likewise, after moving photographs of the Mexican delegation that will assist in rescue tasks after the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria went viral, Merca2.0 did the same exercise on the Artificial Intelligence platform to see how it reflected the international support dedicated to search and rescue.
However, on this second occasion, although the devastation prevails in the territory that goes from Eastern Europe to Western Asia, the attempt of technology to position the Mexican flag and capture the national colors along with those of Turkey is clearly noticeable; However, it also reflects a marked stereotype of the Mexican image that has not been eradicated from the world’s visual perception, since the Mexicans represented by this AI were created, on several occasions, with a “Zapata” style, with hat and mustache:
In a process of learning and repetition, AI was changing the concept of the Mexican rescuer and leaving, even, a variant closer to reality and to the regret that the real images transmitted on the network:
Mexico raises hand for business friend
This Tuesday, February 7, the plane 737800 of the Mexican Air Force (FAM) left for Turkey with 12 crew members, in addition, the head of the Sedena, Luis Cresencio Sandoval, reported that members of the “Humanitarian Aid Force” will be in charge of providing support after the earthquake ; however, due to the logistics and the 20 flight hours it represents, the 150 elements (93 from the Army, 37 from Semar, 15 from the Red Cross and 5 from the SRE) will arrive tomorrow at their destination.
Likewise, the Secretary of the Navy summoned naval personnel that make up the Collapsed Structures Search and Rescue Team (USAR) of the “Frida Rescue Group” to organize a delegation of eight women, 29 men and two canines to join the location of people left under the rubble.
And it is that the Turkish and Syrian support teams, as well as all the international volunteers, face a major problem: working against the clock in the face of the difficult climatic conditions that are currently present in the affected areas, with rains and temperatures below zero that make it difficult to the rescue work.
The fact that Mexico raises its hand in support of the Turkish and Syrian people is not new, especially when considering that, until August 2022, international sales of Mexico to Turkey they were 26.8 million dollars (mdd).
The main commercial relationship of both nations has been reinforced, from time to time, through the main purchase of “Other Lifting, Loading, Unloading or Handling Machines”, as well as “Telephones, including Mobile Telephones and those of other Wireless Networks”.
In 2021, the Government would have reported that the main origins of sales to Turkey derived from Mexico City (72.6 million dollars), Jalisco (64.4 million dollars) and Sinaloa (33.3 million dollars).
However, although this is a strong reason for Mexicans to feel a moral responsibility to support Turkey and strengthen their diplomatic and economic ties, one of the strongest reasons that make national eyes focus on solidarity support is empathy. that citizens feel, because they do not forget the seismic episodes of 1985 and 2017 that left Mexico in “ruins” and gathered thousands of rescue hands worldwide.
