More Information
Description:

Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100,000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organizations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.


Speakers:

Maarten has a master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence and has worked for the Red Cross in a number of international disasters such as Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines (2013) and the floods in Malawi (2015). He is now heading a data initiative that aims to make humanitarian aid faster and more cost effective by smart use of data.
