UNICC is pleased to share that UN Global Pulse has become a Partner Organization. Over the past few years UNICC and UN Global Pulse have worked together on some joint collaborations from data protection and privacy to gender parity in the ICT field. Now we can work together on Big Data and Artificial Intelligence!

Some of our joint efforts and conversations include:

UN Global Pulse is the Secretary-General’s initiative on big data and artificial intelligence for development, humanitarian action, and peace. It was established based on a recognition that digital data offer opportunities to gain a better understanding of changes in human well-being, and to get real-time feedback on how well policy responses are working.

UN Global Pulse works through a network of innovation labs, called Pulse Labs, which operate in Jakarta, Indonesia, in Kampala, Uganda, and in New York at UN Headquarters.

Over the last decade, UN Global Pulse has been expanding the boundaries of its research and technology policy work in close alignment with the transformative innovation efforts of the UN Executive Office in which it operates.
