The UN aims to end poverty, but progress is stalled. Old poverty maps lack detail, hindering aid efforts. We use sensor data (Web, satellite images) and ML to create high-resolution poverty maps in Africa. This helps policymakers target aid precisely. We aim for tools to fight poverty globally. Our exhibit will feature interactive tools & worksheets to explore poverty, big data, and ML in a fun, engaging way.

Maximale Kapazität der Station: 5 Personen

Ending global poverty is the top goal of the United Nations. However, progress has stalled in recent years due to conflicts, pandemics, and climate disasters. Traditional poverty maps often use old data and cannot show detailed local differences, making it hard to reach those most in need. 

To overcome this challenge, we leverage the potential of sensor data. In particular, we employ a variety of data sources, including online crowdsourced data, digital traces, and satellite images. Then, we use machine learning to create high-resolution poverty maps. These maps can help policy makers send help to exactly the right places. 

We test our approach in Sierra Leone and Uganda, two African countries deeply affected by poverty. Our goal is to build tools to fight poverty worldwide.
