Data for Good

Giving back the value of data to society in line with the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals

Giving back the value of data to society

At LUCA, we believe Big Data and Artificial Intelligence can be of great use to society’s development - something we call Big Data for Social Good. Therefore, we use our own connectivity data along with other external data sources to give the world back the value of data and contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.

Data to improve society

There are 6 billion mobile telephones in the world and 80% of them are in developing countries. This gives us a network of sensors that generates information of great value 365 days a year, all hours of the day.

These insights offer a view of damages that occur during natural disasters and other matters of public interest which helps governments make better decisions. It also allows us to predict the spread of epidemics and create poverty indicators that help us understand the economic challenges being faced in developing countries. In short, the possibilities are infinite.

How We Contribute to Society
At LUCA, we have a major social component which gives people back all the value of their data.
