Humanitarian Aid AI

Recent humanitarian crises include hurricanes and other natural disasters as well as emergencies created by humans such as war, terrorist attacks and the like.  Our Humanitarian Aid AI would help save lives, locate loved ones and/or alleviate suffering.  

Problem:

Humanitarian crises have plummeted. According to ReliefWeb's Global Humanitarian Assistance Report 2017, "Humanitarian assistance reported to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs Financial Tracking Service was concentrated on a few large crises in 2016, and five received more than half of all funding (54%): Syria, Yemen, Iraq, South Sudan and Ethiopia. These were all severe crises with some of the largest populations in need." See https://reliefweb.int/report/world/global-humanitarian-assistance-report-2017

Yet, Harpinder Collacott, Executive Director at Development Initiatives, stated, “Poverty, crisis and risk are intrinsically linked. An estimated 87% of people living in extreme poverty are in countries that are considered environmentally vulnerable, fragile or both. This means that effectively preparing for and responding to crises is critical, not only to save lives and alleviate suffering, but also to achieve a sustainable end to global poverty by 2030."

Impact of Humanitarian Aid AI

We're working on a Humanitarian Aid AI to aid during emergencies and natural disasters when need is immediate.
