My TEDx talk on Digital Humanitarians presented at TEDxTraverseCity. I’ve automatically forwarded the above video to a short 4 minute section of the talk in which I highlight how the Digital Humanitarian Network (DHN) used micro-tasking to support the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in response to Typhoon Pablo in the Philippines. See this blog post to learn more about the operation. As a result of this innovative use of micro-tasking, my team and I at QCRI are collaborating with UN OCHA colleagues to launch MicroMappers—a dedicated set of microtasking apps specifically designed for disaster response. These will go live in September 2013.
