The Mission

We amplify knowledge and information transparency in the developing world.
We translate abstract calls for action into concrete solutions.

And we follow “Don’t Be Evil”, taking zero cash from the advertising, military, and financial industries.

Agriculture

If Ag is so important, where's all the data?

Agriculture

Nowhere. It's SAD!

Let's build tech to collect ag data at scale.

Machine Learning

How does the story of John Henry end?

Machine Learning

He dies, with his hammer in his hand.

Would you like to join him?

Or would you rather build the steam engine that kicked his ass?

SPEED

To move fast, you need wheels.

SPEED

How many wheels have you reinvented?

We have all the wheels you'll need.

In one place.

Computer Vision

What do you spy with your little eye?

Computer Vision

Nothing.

You wear spectacles and your eyesight sucks.

CATS can see better than you.

Remote Sensing

What does it mean that God is omniscient?

Remote Sensing

It means God has a multi-million dollar DigitalGlobe Pro subscription.

But what about us?

Cloud Computing

How's that HPC server installation going?

Cloud Computing

Stop the madness.

No one in Silicon Valley does that stupid shit anymore, and neither should you.

3D Printing

We don't MAKE things anymore!

3D Printing

STOP getting ripped off by foreign countries!

We will build it.

And we will build it very inexpensively.

NLP

You haven't finished reading Wikipedia yet?!

NLP

No human ever has or ever will.

ONLY a computer can.

Software Engineering

Learn programming in ONLY 24 HOURS!

Software Engineering

Learn Kung Fu in 24 Hours?!

To tame complexity, speed, sustainability, and usability ...

... Patience we must have!

Blogging is so 1990s and for try-hards. That’s why we like Twitter. Twitter is like owning your own newspaper, but without the losses. In fact, if the press would cover us accurately and honorably, then we would have far less reason to tweet, believe me. But we have not been getting equal time in these one-sided development meetings, even though more and more people have been saying that we should be granted equal time. So we must tweet!

We have also been posting videos of our progress on YouTube. Our ratings have increased thousands of times since we started. Why are foundations still giving hundreds of millions of dollars to bloated organizations that don’t even bother to explain to the public what they are doing? A total scam! But the good news is that the PEOPLE get what WE are doing, which is really all that matters!
