                from WhiteAfrican Added 1,601 13 0

                Swift River was given a lot of thought by Chris Blow and Kaushal Jhalla before the Ushahidi meetings in March 2009. This video is a short version of what was recorded, giving an idea of what was being discussed. What is Swift? It's an initiative that seeks to do two very important things, both of which are crucial for not just Ushahidi, but for many emergency response activities in the future. First, it gathers as many possible streams of data about a particular crisis event as possible. Second, using a two-part filter, that stream of data is filtered through both machine based algorithms and humans to better understand the veracity and level of importance of any piece of information.

                  In the wake of the January 12th, 2010 earthquake in Haiti a free phone number (4636) was established to meet the urgent needs of the Haitian people through SMS messaging. People on the ground can now text their requests for medical care, food, water, and shelter from any Digicel / Comcel-Voila device and receive aid. Through the “Mission 4636” service, the SMS request data is collected and accessed by thousands of volunteers (that’s you!). Volunteers enter English translations of Creole and French messages into our unique online form which sorts the information by need and priority, and distributes it to various NGOs including Ushahidi Inc., International Red Cross, Person Finder, InSTEDD, & the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Do you speak Creole? Go to http://www.samasource.org/haiti/ to volunteer. Please spread this video widely to help us locate Creole-speaking volunteers!
