data.org is a platform for partnerships to support data science for social impact, cofounded by The Rockefeller Foundation and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth. We work with organizations from all over the world to increase the use of data science in order to improve the lives of millions of people.
Epiverse is a global collaborative led by data.org to create the distributed data analysis tools of the future. Through its network of interdisciplinary experts and partners, Epiverse is developing a trustworthy, open-source software ecosystem to power pandemic preparedness and, in the future, address a broad range of social challenges.
The International Digital Health and Artificial Intelligence Research Collaborative, or I-DAIR, is a new international, multi-stakeholder and distributed platform for the inclusive, impactful and responsible R&D of digital technologies and artificial intelligence for health. Inspired by the recommendations of the UNSG’s High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation, I-DAIR’s work is rooted in multilateralism – in health and science collaboration, with the goal to federate a transdisciplinary scientific community around a shared research agenda and facilitate access to digital health and AI innovations for clinical researchers, policy makers and patients around the world. I-DAIR can be understood as a “distributed CERN for AI and digital health”, where digital transformation is seen as an enabler to achieve universal health coverage (UHC) and SDG 3 for the promotion of healthy lives.
The Open Data Institute (ODI) is a non-profit company, founded in 2012 by Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Sir Nigel Shadbolt. We work with companies and governments to build an open, trustworthy data ecosystem. We work with a range of companies, organisations, governments, public bodies and civil society to create a world where data works for everyone.
- work in policy – influencing government decisions towards the kind of data ecosystem we want to create that will be best for society
- work with businesses – helping them to develop ethical, equitable data infrastructure that will be both good for business and their social mission
- work with philanthropic and other grant-giving organisations – to build a data infrastructure that brings benefits to all
- work with governments, research organisations, public bodies and civil society around the world – to ensure that they can benefit from better data infrastructure.
The Royal Society is a self-governing Fellowship of many of the world’s most distinguished scientists drawn from all areas of science, engineering, and medicine. The Society’s fundamental purpose, reflected in its founding Charters of the 1660s, is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.
Our programme of policy work relating to data and digital technologies includes highlighting the role or technologies in enabling well-governed, privacy-preserving use of data and addressing scientific misinformation; pursuing a data-led net zero transition; and issues across the landscape of data, AI and digital technologies. The Royal Society convened two data-led initiatives to respond to the pandemic: Data Evaluation and Learning for Viral Epidemics (DELVE) and Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP).
The Trinity Challenge is an initiative led by some of the world’s most prominent organisations from across the private, academic, and social sectors for the purpose of sourcing and scaling solutions that better protect one billion more people from future health emergencies. It is a call to action for the world’s best and brightest minds to contribute ideas and innovations, raising up to $10M in awards and support for the best Challenge Teams. Questions cover economics, behavioural sciences, epidemiology, and many other disciplines. Founding Members and Members will contribute their data, resources, and time to catalyse and support the work of Challenge Teams.
