Global Pulse is an innovation initiative that is developing a new approach to crisis impact monitoring. Global Pulse is developing HunchWorks, a place where experts of all kinds can post hypotheses—or hunches—that may warrant further exploration and then crowdsource data and verification. HunchWorks will be a key global platform for rapidly detecting emerging crises and their impacts on vulnerable communities. Using it, experts will be able to quickly surface ground truth and detect anomalies in data about collective behavior for further analysis, investigation and action.
Adaptive Path has been collaborating with the Global Pulse team to identify the challenges surrounding HunchWorks to help with some of the complex UX problems and design solutions. With a idea as big HunchWorks, we wanted to open up the task to the UX community in order to push the work forward.
