About UN Global Pulse

UN Global Pulse is the Secretary-General’s initiative on big data and artificial intelligence for development, humanitarian action, and peace.

About 1

UN Global Pulse was established based on a recognition that digital data offer opportunities to gain a better understanding of changes in human well-being, and to get real-time feedback on how well policy responses are working.

We work through a network of innovation labs, called Pulse Labs, which operate in Jakarta, Indonesia, in Kampala, Uganda, and in New York at the UN Headquarters.

Over the last decade, we have been expanding the boundaries of our research and technology policy work in close alignment with the transformative innovation efforts of the Executive Office in which we operate.

Our vision is that UN Global Pulse contributes to a future in which big data and artificial intelligence are harnessed safely and responsibly for the public good.
