Global Pulse is a United Nations innovation initiative on big data and data science. Its vision is a future in which big data is harnessed safely and responsibly as a public good. UN Global Pulse promotes awareness of the opportunities big data presents for sustainable development and humanitarian action, develops high-impact analytics solutions for UN and government partners through its network of data science innovation centres, or Pulse Labs, in Indonesia (Jakarta), Uganda (Kampala) and at UN Headquarters (New York), and works to lower barriers to adoption and scaling.
