Big Data in the Service of Humanity
In the technological sector we are living a historic moment for humanity. Today, endless data can be extracted from smartphones, laptops, tablets and other devices. In most cases, this data ends up being used by big companies to chart a more advanced profile of their consumers. Fortunately there is also an alternative use for all that Big Data, which can transform entire sectors of our society.
With the so-called ‘Data-for-Good‘, DataKind wants to put data to the service of humanity by bringing together scientists and analysts with organizations who are looking to make a positive impact. Thus, through close collaboration they can confront humanitarian challenges with all the necessary information.
In our opinion, DataKind defines very well their philosophy on their website: “We are not only dealing with numbers but also with the lives of people”
