Prepared for the United Nations Global Pulse team, PSFK’s Future of Real-Time Report identifies key trends emerging around the capture and transmission of real-time information streams. Communities and organizations can learn from the themes in PSFK’s Future of Real-Time report to create new solutions that support the care and well-being of the world’s population.
Evolving data-rich technologies are providing organizations, governments and businesses with a rapid way to monitor the well-being of communities and individuals without significant infrastructure or spend. For organizations whose success is dependent on the ability to quickly recognize and react to high-risk situations, the proliferation of rapid access to “good enough” information is proving invaluable.
This report has been developed for the United Nations Global Pulse, a project whose goal is to support governments in understanding what is happening to their most vulnerable populations in real-time. We intend for it to be openly shared around the globe between communities, development agencies, academia and other organizations. The aim of the report is to highlight the opportunities that exist for organizations, large or small. In particular, the “left field” examples of data capture and use are published in hope of showcasing how organizations can leap-frog IT investment and still significantly improve the monitoring capabilities.
