Through predictive technology, organizations can get aid to places in need sooner.
David Soloff, the CEO and co-founder of Premise, told Devex Partnerships Editor Richard Jones, about the shifting and increasingly important role tech and analytics firms play in distributing international aid.
In the past, these companies simply gathered massive amounts of data about what was happening, and where. But as technology becomes more advanced, theanalytics behind this data is playing a more important role. The promise of artificial intelligence is yet to be maximized, Soloff said on the sidelines of Devex World. Predictive technology such as Google can also help determine where the next food crisis will be, which will allow aid organizations to distribute aid in a more efficient, accurate and timely manner.
