  • address these challenges by adopting a hybrid disease surveillance approach which fosters cross-disciplinary social network and open collaborative decision making approach in order to facilitate early identification of potential health threats their verification, assessment and investigation in order to recommend measures (public health and others) to control them.Indicator-based surveillancecomputation of indicators upon which unusual disease patterns to investigate are detected  (number of cases, rates, proportion of strains…)Event-based surveillancethe detection of public health events based on the capture of ad-hoc unstructured reports issued by formal or informal sources.
  • Transcript of "InSTEDD ETech Presentation"

    1. 1. WHAT APPROACHES WILL HELP US ADAPT TO A CHANGING WORLD AND PREPARE FOR THE UNEXPECTED? Banda Aceh, Indonesia, 2004
    2. 2. IN OUR OPINION, COLLABORATION MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE
    3. 3. WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE • Diverse groups self-organize seamlessly into a coherent whole. • The flow of information is: – free, reliable, secure, – up, down, sideways, – timely, accurate, complete, relevant, and credible. • The response is agile, coordinated, efficient, and effective.
    4. 4. FEW REASONS WHY IT SELDOM A DOES… Harsh field conditions Slow, unreliable networks Hot, tired, overloaded responders Low signal-to-noise ratio Data trapped in silos Disincentives for cooperation Lack of good tools for emergent collective action Ignoring the local community
    5. 5. 7
    6. 6. InSTEDD Improve event detection and humanitarian response Socio-technical organization and mission Collaboration technologies Worldwide, with field laboratory in Phnom Penh Free & open source
    7. 7. CONSTRAINED ENVIRONMENTS CREATE A PRESSURE COOKER FOR INNOVATION GRAMEEN SOLUTIONS GRAMEEN SHAKTI GRAMEEN KAYLAN GRAMEEN PHONE
    8. 8. The InSTEDD Technology Platform Free Open source Standards Mesh4X: Share Data Across All Boundaries MESH4X lets you integrate applications, devices, and information seamlessly – into a shared, synchronized, distributed data mesh GeoChat: Take Decisive Action in Response – GEOCHAT lets you engage and coordinate with everyone who needs to be involved, linking headquarters, field, and the local community Evolve: Synthesize Data into Actionable Information EVOLVE lets you and your team monitor and collaborate around diverse data – streams to detect, analyze, triage and track critical events as they unfold
    9. 9. INFORMATION FLOW Nokia Phone with Khmer script support, and an unlikely fortune cookie note
    10. 10. InSTEDD GEOCHAT SMS, Twitter, email, … Location Open and Closed Groups Explicit or Automatic Location SMS-Only interaction API Semi-structured information, extensible pipeline
    11. 11. INTEROPERABILITY Laptops from all over the world come together to integrate medical records systems, HISA South Africa 2008
    12. 12. Mesh4x A synchronization framework for seamless information sharing • Fuse data from diverse applications, sources, and devices • Synchronize data automatically between databases, files, websites, desktop software, PDAs, maps, and the Cloud • HTTP, files & SMS • RESTFull N-way data sync •MySQL • Open standards: FeedSync, •Hibernate RSS/ATOM, XForms, RDF •MSAccess • Multiple channels: http, files, SMS •MSExcel • Available in both .NET and Java •AmazonS3 •JavaROSA Come and play - Mesh4x.org •EpiInfo •KML (G Earth)
    13. 13. SHARING DATA IS DISRUPTIVE Les Lenert from CDC briefs about technologies they consider disruptive. Mesh4x changes the game of data ownership and storage lock-in
    14. 14. FROM DATA TO COLLECTIVE ACTION
    15. 15. InSTEDD Evolve 1.0 Collaborative decision support around streams of information Features: • Create collaborative workspaces • Subscribe to data • Sift through the data for emerging events • Annotate items with tags, comments, ratings, links, locations, files, alerts, and other social metadata • Autonomous agents perform data extensions, feature extraction, classification, tagging, geo-coding • Human teams act with augmentation of machine learning
    16. 16. ARCHITECTURE DECENTRALIZED TOP-DOWN AND BOTTOM-UP DECOUPLED DYNAMIC CONTEXT AWARE INTREROPERABILITY USER-EMPOWERING DIVERSITY SECURITY OCCASIONALLY CONNECTED DATA AS A BUILDING BLOCK …CONSTANT EXPLORATION! PATTERNS - SOLUTION TO A PROBLEM IN A CONTEXT PATTERN LANGUAGES FOR ISSUES THAT MATTER IN THE MAJORITY OF THE WORLD?
    17. 17. HUMAN INTERACTION DESIGN
    18. 18. InSTEDD Innovation Lab Socio-technical lab Neutral space for gov, org, edu & com In-situ interaction design Dissolving silos of data & trust Local Sustainable Innovation
    19. 19. Thank You! Eric Rasmussen Eduardo Jezierski rasmussen@instedd.org edjez@instedd.org @rasmussene @edjez Buddhist monks bless the InSTEDD Innovation Lab and our generator, 2009. As far as illusions go, electricity is a darn useful one
