Competition: How can data and AI tools become more relevant to solving local social challenges? | Land Portal | Securing Land Rights Through Open Data

Drone data has allowed us to find solutions for a wide range of social challenges, like humanitarian aid, resource conservation, resilient urban planning and many more. But as the field has expanded, three pressing issues have emerged:

  1. how to produce impactful analysis in a rapid manner;
  2. how to then bring back results to beneficiaries to turn data into action; and
  3. how to make ethics a main concern in each step of the process.

To address these issues, WeRobotics and Omidyar Network have launched the Unusual Solutions Competition to help local experts bring their solutions to life—including the chance to win $100,000 for the implementation of their idea!

Participate now and enter your idea before August 31, 2019.

9 finalists will win USD 15,000 each to turn their idea into a concept and create a strong pitch. And then compete for the grand prize of USD 100,000 for the best solution.
