IST Research Deploys Crowdsourcing Technology to Colombia & Zambia

Engaging Populations Utilizing Indigenous Communications Technology Fredericksburg, VA, November, 2012 –(PR.com)– IST Research has developed novel approaches to collecting highly structured data from indigenous populations in the most austere locations around the globe. The IST Research Data Collection Environment includes new technology development and social engineering efforts necessary to effectively engage populations in information sharing campaigns.

IST Research has recently deployed its Data Collection Environment (DCE) to both Colombia & Zambia with the intent of engaging and collecting data from the local residents in these countries using the technology with which they are most familiar. The system was designed to seamlessly launch collection tools across a number of different modalities enabling the largest possible proliferation of input mechanisms. Based on 2011 data from the International Telecommunication Union, two-thirds of the world’s population has no access to the Internet, whereas 87% has access to a cell phone subscription (79% in the developing world). As part of the DCE, IST Research engineers have created a globally deployable, Android-based SMS gateway, which is being deployed in support of these projects. read more
