Pulse Lab Jakarta combines data science and human intelligence to help make sense of this interconnected, interdependent, and complex world. The Lab is a joint initiative of the United Nations and the Government of Indonesia, via United Nations Global Pulse and the Ministry of National Development and Planning (Bappenas) respectively.
As the first innovation lab of its kind in Asia, Pulse Lab Jakarta is closing information gaps in the development and humanitarian sectors through the adoption of big data, real-time analytics and artificial intelligence.
