QED (https://qed.ai) builds data systems and AI for human health and agriculture, the two fields that we believe to be most relevant to the security of humankind. We are a fully mission-driven technology company. We have regional expertise in development and humanitarian projects in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. Our work aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2, 3, 6, and 15.
We aim to empower local organizations in developing countries by using technology to build their capacity. We shape and adapt software and hardware to address their needs on the ground, to improve collection and analysis of data to assist in making informed policy decisions. Our forte is our ability to leverage, adjust, and deploy technologies in highly-demanding environments.
Our technologists immerse themselves within organizations for an extended period of time and work with local experts. Together, we develop practical solutions within realistic requirements and infrastructural constraints. Simultaneously we provide training, which is an integral part of our work, to develop local capacity and ensure project sustainability. Our Kenyan entity, QED Africa Limited (2016), provides boots-on-the-ground data collection, data analysis, and technology services in Sub-Saharan Africa. We also have incorporations in the USA and EU, specialized in technology and tool development.
