Disha aims to drive innovation and improve programs by giving users long-term access to diverse data assets. We offer user-friendly tools that enable effective application of AI models, bring valuable insights and allow for seamless transfer across contexts.
Disha facilitates data use through user-friendly “insight layers” that transform complex data into easily understood information, aiding decision-making and program implementation. For example, Disha’s socioeconomic mapping use-case, developed in collaboration with NGOs, successfully tracks post-disaster population movements and shifts in poverty metrics, proving its use in managing disasters and cutting lead time for relief.
Aware of the legal and ethical aspects, Disha aims to develop a data/AI ethics and governance framework, ensuring trustworthy and responsible access to and reuse of all data, AI and insights. We promote transparency, accountability, and simplified data sharing with a legal framework for sharing and licensing. This clarifies roles and responsibilities, solves common legal issues, minimises negotiation time and harmonises onboarding processes.
Disha builds users’ capacity to scale their insights and solutions through guidance, mentorship, partnership-brokering and best practices support.
