We believe that reliable, real-time, highly contextualized decision data will define the future of sustainable development.
Here's how we're laying the groundwork for that future.
Denominator is an evolution of multiple data-centric endeavors by people with diverse backgrounds and interests, from computer science to vaccines to climate. At our core is a shared passion for improving the ways by which we contextualize and use data for development.
Despite huge advances in data acquisition methods, from satellite population scans to Internet-enabled device monitoring, much work must still be done to understand the common threads shared by these and many other data sources – the “backdrop” against which we process information.
The projects we undertake are explorations meant to help us consolidate the great strides made in data for development over the past decade. Through these explorations, we will develop and advocate for best practices that establish the common truths upon which data must be assessed.
